Jerry Seinfeld’s First Netflix Special JERRY BEFORE SEINFELD Gets Release Date

Get ready for the Seinfeld resurgence.

As you may remember, Netflix recently gave Jerry Seinfeld something like, I dunno, a trillion dollars for two comedy specials and the rights to air every Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee episode he makes from now unto the end of time.

And now that purchase is about to mean something. Netflix has announced that the first of these specials, titled Jerry Before Seinfeld, will arrive September 19. You can binge the whole damn hour, which includes a set at The Comic Strip in New York City as well as segments where I guess Seinfeld shows off his jokes on legal pads for some reason.

I can’t say I’m excited about that last bit, but more Seinfeld is always a good thing. The guy is fascinatingly strange to me, but I also think he’s one of the all time great comics. I’m very excited to see what he has up his sleeve, and, you know, whether this once squeaky clean will manage to piss anyone off. (But I’m a tiny bit more excited for those CICGC episodes!)

To help celebrate, Netflix did a neat Instagram thing that you should just click to see, as I can’t give it the presentation it deserves here.
