Comedian Jerry Seinfeld has credited Scientology for making him a better comic.
The Seinfeld creator and star rarely talks about his connections to the controversial religion, but has opened up in a new magazine article.
He tells America’s Parade that a high school teacher turned him onto Scientology almost 30 years ago.
He says: “It was interesting. Believe it or not…it’s extremely intellectual and clinical in its approach to problem-solving, which really appealed to me.”
Seinfeld merely dabbled with the organisation, that boasts Tom Cruise and John Travolta among its high-profile members and revealed: ”In my early years of stand-up, it was very helpful. I took a couple of courses. One of them was in communication, and I learned some things about communication that really got my act going.”
He added: “They (Scientologists) have a lot of very good technology. That’s what really appealed to me about it. It’s not faith-based. It’s all technology. And I’m obsessed with technology.”
