Reluctant pirate and New York City entertainment icon Jerry Seinfeld is set to tour Australia & New Zealand in August 2017.
The comedian, whose little known series Seinfeld ended up becoming one of the most popular television series of all time, will be 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 ever toured in Adelaide, and the comedian's first time back in Australia since 1998.
"New Zealand and Australia may be far in miles, but I feel very close to the people because of our mutual comedy connection. I couldn't be more excited about seeing everyone there." Seinfeld said.
Since writing, producing and starring in Seinfeld with co-creator Larry David, Jerry Seinfeld went on to produce hit web-series "Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee", even going as far as having President Obama as a guest.
In 2016, Jerry Seinfeld began a residency at the historic Beacon Theatre in New York, performing once a month as part of a residency entitled, "Jerry Seinfeld: The Homestand".
Seinfeld's career took off after his first appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1981.

His latest film The Image Book is a fragmented, often overwhelming collage of images and sounds from disparate contexts.
A genre-blending thriller, drama and romance, exploring the phenomenon of catfishing from the catfish’s POV. Who You Think I Am is masterfully carried by veteran actress Juliette Binoche, who somehow manages to elicit sympathy to an unsympathetic cause.
The film could’ve very well devolved into the kind of old-man-yells-at-cloud platitudes we hear all the time about technology, but Assayas is a more deft handler of these conversations than most.
The power of theatre to realistically, yet conceptually tackle taboo topics in society is proven by local company Velvet Chase Productions in their performance of Daniella Candida’s #nofilter, a unique, expressive and emotive exploration of mental illness, its causes, its effects, and the many faces of it.
