Jerry Seinfeld to Revisit Early Club Days for Netflix Special
A new, hour-long comedy special will show Jerry Seinfeld returning to one of the clubs where he cut his teeth, New York City’s the Comic Strip, for what’s being billed as an “intimate stand-up set.” The show, dubbed Jerry Before Seinfeld, will also feature a tour of the legal pads he’s kept with every joke he’s written since 1975 and footage from childhood videos. The special is set to premiere on Netflix on September 19th.
The streaming service has posted video from the special and photos of Seinfeld’s comedy notebooks to its @NetflixComedy Instagram account. One, which is a bit like a lyric video, contains audio of Seinfeld joking about moving furniture with his dad while the words are highlighted in his notebook.
