Widely considered one of the most popular comedians of all time, Jerry Seinfeld brings his timeless comedy to the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach for two shows, 7:00 pm and 9:30 pm, on Friday October 26th.
Born in Brooklyn in 1954, Seinfeld created The Seinfeld Chronicles with Larry David in 1988 for NBC. The show was later renamed Seinfeld to avoid confusion with the short-lived teen sitcom The Marshall Chronicles. By its fourth season, it had become the most popular and successful sitcom on American television. The final episode aired in 1998, and the show has been a popular syndicated re-run.
Along with Seinfeld, the show starred Saturday Night Live veteran Julia Louis-Dreyfus and experienced actors Michael Richards and Jason Alexander. Alexander played George, a caricature of Larry David. Seinfeld is the only actor to appear in every episode of the show.
Seinfeld has said that his show was influenced by the 1950’s sitcom The Abbott and Costello Show. In the Seinfeld Season DVD set, commenting on the episode The Gymnast, Seinfeld cited Jean Shepherd as an influence, saying, “He really formed my entire comedic sensibility—I learned how to do comedy from Jean Shepherd.”
In 2012, Seinfeld started a web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, in which he would pick up a fellow comedian in a different car each episode and take them out for coffee and conversation. The initial series consisted of ten episodes lasting from 7 to 25 minutes each. Season 2 (2013) had six episodes, with guests including Don Rickles and David Letterman.
In 2017, Seinfeld had signed a comedy deal with Netflix. As part of the deal, all episodes of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee would be made available. On September 19, 2017, Netflix released the standup comedy special, Jerry Before Seinfeld.Buy Tickets Here!
