Netflix has announced the arrival of a brand new Jerry Seinfeld stand-up special to be released on May 5, according to Variety. Following Seinfeld’s first special with the streaming giant, the second hour-long special, entitled “Jerry Seinfeld: 23 Hours to Kill,” was shot in New York City and will be another chance for the comedian to showcase his quick wit on everyday objects and life. In 2017, the comedian signed a production deal with Netflix which included two stand-up specials with “Jerry Before Seinfeld” being released in this deal’s first year.
Seinfeld is most known for his successful self-titled sitcom on NBC which ran for nine seasons and amassed 180 episodes. The sitcom, created by Seinfeld and Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm), debuted in 1989 and won a total of ten Primetime Emmy Awards and three Golden Globe Awards. The classic comedy is currently available for streaming on Hulu, yet, by 2021, the show’s entire library will be available exclusively on Netflix. Additionally, Seinfeld also hosts the talk-show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, available exclusively on Netflix. The series displays Seinfeld and famous comedians and actors from Seth Rogen to Ricky Gervais discussing with one another over a cup of coffee.
