Seinfeld on top down under

Jerry Seinfeld is guilty of being a Jewish comedian who supports Israel. Playing to a big audience in Qudos Bank Arena at Sydney Olympic Park last night, he dealt with a “From the river to the sea” heckler for a few minutes. Seinfeld observed: “You’re really influencing everyone here. We’re all on your side now, because you’ve made your point so well, and in the right venue. You’ve come to the right place for a political conversation.” More: “Tomorrow we will read in the paper ‘Middle East 100 percent solved thanks to man at the Qudos Arena stopping Jew comedian.'”

Was Jerry prepared for this guy? He quickly offered to follow his brilliant example: “They have problems here [with the Indigenous] so maybe to solve that, I will screw up [Australian comedian] Jim Jefferies in a show in New York. If that works, this will work. You have to go 20,000 miles from the problem and screw up a comedian, that is how you solve world issues.”
