Entertainment icon Jerry Seinfeld will tour Australia in August 2017 performing a live stand-up show filled with his trademark humour, wit and sharp observations about day-to-day life. It’s the first time Seinfeld has toured Australia in nearly 20 years – he last performed live in Sydney and Melbourne in June 1998.
Globally known and loved for his eponymous sitcom about nothing, Jerry Seinfeld’s career took off in 1981 after his first appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Eight years later, he teamed up with fellow comedian Larry David to create what was to become the most successful comedy series in the history of television: Seinfeld. Starring a semi-fictional version of its star, Seinfeld ran for nine seasons, screened around the world and won numerous Emmy, Golden Globe and People’s Choice awards. In 2009 it was named the greatest television show of all time by TV Guide; it was judged the best sitcom ever in a 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll three years later.
