Best of comedy in Sydney
Big comedy tours coming to Sydney
Jerry Seinfeld is doing stand-up in Sydney
Jerry Seinfeld hasn't done a stand-up show in Australia since 1998. Sure, he'll make a trip down under now and then to talk about Bee Movie and allegedly refer to Melbourne as the "anus of the world". But a stand-up show? Nada. Until now. Seinfeld is bringing his stand-up act to Australia in August of 2017. He'll be playing the ICC Sydney Theatre on August 11, and tickets will go on sale via Ticketek on November 14. He's also standing up in Melbourne, where we assume he'll check out the surprising number of Seinfeld-adjacent bars. Never seen an episode of Seinfeld? It's worth getting to know what's considered one of – if not the – best TV sitcoms. An entire lexicon of common phrases will suddenly reveal its origins... like watching Hamlet for the first time. More recently Seinfeld is known for his game-changing web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. (There goes your day – apologies) See what other comedy stars are touring in 2016/2017.
