The Covid-19 (aka Coronavirus) has kept nearly every person from around the world at home. Trying times for all for sure and possibly going stir crazy. Many of us are desperate for something to do or laugh about. Comedywrap.com collected a few things from around the interwebs to help a variety of comedy nerds get through this pandemic.
Jerry Seinfeld has a new Netflix stand up comedy special titled “23 Hours To Kill”.
Master of his domain, Jerry Seinfeld, has filmed a brand new hour-long comedy special that will drop on the streaming service on May 5. This special will be Seinfeld’s 2nd for Netflix following his 2017’s Emmy-nominated “Jerry Before Seinfeld.” Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” series is also on Netflix but given the current social distancing mandate it’s unclear when that show will come back. Remember that all 180 episodes of the greatest TV sitcom ever, Seinfeld, are coming to Netflix next year.
“23 Hours to Kill” was taped at the Beacon Theatre in New York City, and the title refers to how Seinfeld sees life in between standup comedy performances. For one hour each day, everything comes alive on that stage in front of a crowd, and once the laughter dies down, it’s back to waiting another 23 hours for that fix. This special fulfills Seinfeld’s multi-faceted production deal with Netflix, which he signed back in 2017, and guaranteed two original comedy specials.
