Jerry Seinfeld set for Israel stand-up debut

American funny guy says he’d need a tank to host Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his show, ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.’

Jerry Seinfeld

 

Famed American comedian Jerry Seinfeld will make his professional debut in Israel in December, with a stand-up performance at Tel Aviv’s Mivtachim Menorah Arena. Seinfeld’s routine in Tel Aviv is part of a world tour.

Asked about whether he’d add Jewish jokes to his set in Israel, the funnyman told Channel 2 news that his jokes are “all Jewish jokes, everything I’ve ever said is Jewish. When you’re Jewish everything you say is Jewish.”

Seinfeld can currently be seen on his web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, on which he selects a vintage car for each guest. Asked which car he’d choose if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were to join him for a drive on the show, Seinfeld thought for a brief moment and then told Channel 2, “a tank. The man needs a tank. He needs some kind of protection.”

Seinfeld last visited Israel in 2007, to promote The Bee Movie. He also volunteered on a kibbutz as a teenager. But the comedian behind television’s wildly successful Seinfeld series, has yet to take the local stage.

Tickets for the December 19 show in Tel Aviv sold out within a few hours of going on sale today and organizers quickly added another show. Prices for tickets range from $65 to $234.
