TheDailyBeast: Stars’ Worst Pre-Fame Jobs

Jerry Seinfeld: Light Bulb Telemarketer

"I was a telephone salesman pitching light bulbs," comedian Jerry Seinfeld told People. "It was 1976, and I was just looking for some grocery money. I hated the job, it was horrible. It was all lying, outrageous prices and phony names. I called myself Dave Wilson—you had to come up with a name so people would think they knew you. I'd call and say, 'Hey, Bill, remember I talked to you 18 months ago? It's Dave Wilson.' And the other person doesn't want to insult me, so they'd say, 'Yeah, I think I remember.' I only had the job a couple of weeks and knew it was time to leave as soon as I could afford a loaf of bread."
