Entertainment icon Jerry Seinfeld will tour New Zealand in August 2017 performing a live stand-up show filled with his trademark humour, wit and sharp observations about day-to-day life.
Seinfeld’s debut New Zealand performance will be at Auckland’s Vector Arena on Saturday August 12, following his five-city tour of Australia. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Monday 14 November for this Auckland show, during which the world’s master of observational comedy will amuse, provoke and entertain. It’s the first time Seinfeld has ever toured New Zealand – although this tour will see his return to Australia where he last performed live in Sydney and Melbourne in June 1998. Seinfeld said: “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.” 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.
Seinfeld also has starred in, written and produced movies (Comedian, Bee Movie), directed and produced a Broadway hit (Colin Quinn Long Story Short), and even wrote a best-selling book (Seinlanguage) and a children’s book (Halloween). He directed the off-Broadway production of Colin Quinn: The New York Story at the Cherry Lane Theatre in Greenwich Village.
Seinfeld’s latest project is critically acclaimed web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which has garnered close to 100 million views, and which the New York Times describes as “impressively complex and artful” and Variety calls “a game changer”.
