Jerry Seinfeld announces London shows for 2019

The Seinfeld icon will play four dates across two evenings at London’s Eventim Apollo next July marking his first return to the capital since a show at the O2 Arena in 2011.

Seinfeld will perform two shows a night on 12 and 13 July, marking his return to the capital for the first time in seven years. The 64-year-old superstar comedian, who found international fame with his eponymous TV series, has had recent hits with the Netflix special Jerry Before Seinfeld and the Emmy-nominated web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. He will arrive in the UK after a residency at the Beacon theatre, New York.

The comic recently gave an interview to the New York Times in which he reflected on the current climate in comedy including Bill Cosbys sentence for sexual assault, Louis CKs return to live performance after admitting sexual misconduct and the cancellation of Roseanne Barrs show after she posted a racist tweet.

Seinfeld said that the intensity of solo standup is what makes it so popular: The thing about being in comedy is, We hate you, get off the stage is what were used to. Every comedian has that as part of their life. Getting booed, yelled at, hated. So you almost dont notice it. You either have the skin for it or you dont.

In one of his most recent UK performances, in 2012, Seinfeld performed in Birmingham. Oh my God, Birmingham, England! he yelled as he took the stage. Do you know how many years I have been wanting to come here? Zero! Never even thought about it.
