Jerry Seinfeld Gets Personal in His Israel Show


We got so many positive reactions to the video clip of Jerry Seinfeld's standup comedy in Tel Aviv last week that we're posting another part of his sold-out show. And there's more to come.

In this segment, Jerry talks about his personal life, age, and marriage. As Allison Kaplan Sommer wrote in Haaretz,
Seinfeld didn’t address the security situation, though the comedian who opened for him, Mark Schiff said in his set that he had been asked if he was nervous about travelling to Israel and said “I’ve been married for 25 years. Nothing scares me.”

Like Schiff, Seinfeld, who said he felt “warmly received” in Israel, spent a great deal of his act on men, women, and married life, a universal source of humor, which Seinfeld compared to underwear. An ideal marriage, he said “offers a little bit of support and a little bit of freedom.” 
Enjoy!

  1. I hope that more comedians would visit and have shows in Israel.
