JERRY BEFORE SEINFELD (Television Release USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Jerry Before Seinfeld—
despite trailers promising a good dive into Jerry’s early life—does not deliver a lot about his childhood or the days before his standup comedy routines. The film focuses more on his beginnings as a comedian and rehearses a trip down memory lane via old comedy routines. He performs this memory trip in the same New York club he started in years before. It’s a quality Seinfeld comedy hour, worth watching.
