Jerry Seinfeld is a master of capturing an audiences' attention:

  • Watch the hand gestures
  • He understands and uses "pauses" in his speech perfectly.  This gives the audience a chance to take in what he has said and laugh
  • Watch the other movements he makes to accentuate what he is saying
  • Listen for difference in the level of his voice
