In Jerry Before Seinfeld, the comedian revisits a number of his early jokes during a set at The Comic Strip in New York City. The show which will air on Netflix on September 19, is also set to include videos from Seinfeld’s youth and a tour of his legal pad collection, which includes every joke he has written over the last 42 years.
Seinfeld’s new special will be the first of two the comedian is crafting for Netflix as part of a major deal he inked with the platform in January. In addition to the specials, Seinfeld is developing both scripted and non-scripted series for Netflix. His Comedians in Cars series, in which Seinfeld interviews other funny people while seated in a classy automobile, also moved to Netflix.
