Seinfelds First Time To Perth
Comedy master and entertainment icon Jerry Seinfeld has just announced he will be touring Australia in 2017!
Kicking off at Perth Arena on Friday 4 August, Seinfeld will be performing a live stand-up show filled with his trademark humour, wit and sharp observations about day-to-day life.
Seinfeld said: "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 again."
It’s the first time Seinfeld has toured Australia in nearly 20 years, having last performed live in Sydney and Melbourne in June 1998. It’s the first time Seinfeld will visit Perth.
President and CEO of TEG Dainty, Paul Dainty said he was delighted to welcome Seinfeld back to Australia:
“After 40 years in the industry, Jerry Seinfeld is arguably the best known and most successful stand-up comedian in the world. As well as his long-term fans, this tour gives a new generation of Australians a rare opportunity to see the master at work.”
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.
A New York native, Seinfeld remains active as a standup comedy performer, continuously touring nationally and internationally. This year he has performed a year-long monthly residency at the Beacon Theatre entitled, “Jerry Seinfeld: The Homestand”.
As Rolling Stone said of his Beacon Theatre performance: “The show happily reminded the audience the ridiculous things its members share: lazy diction, contradictory behaviours, vapid rituals, and, of course, the inescapable minutiae that overwhelm our lives. Yada yada yada.”
Don’t miss out on witnessing the world’s master of observational comedy when he kicks things off at Perth Arena next August!
