Jerry Seinfeld Ridicules Pro-Palestinian Heckler During Comedy Show In Australia

Jerry Seinfeld did not hold back after a pro-Palestinian heckler interrupted his comedy set during a show in Sydney, Australia over the weekend. The heckler yelled to free Palestine during Seinfeld’s set.

“We have a genius ladies and gentlemen, he solved the Middle East,” Seinfeld quipped as the crowd cheered the comedian on. “It’s the Jewish comedians, that’s who we have to get. They’re the ones doing everything.”

The heckler continued to yell as he was led away by security and Seinfeld kept going saying, “They’re going to start punching you in about three seconds, so I would try to get all of your genius out so we can all learn from you”.

Seinfeld continued,”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,” he said. “Tomorrow we will read in the paper: Middle East 100 percent solved thanks to man at the Qudos Arena stopping jew comedian…You have to go 20,000 miles from the problem and screw up a comedian, that is how you solve world issues.”

Several of Seinfeld’s comedy sets have been disrupted recently by protesters for his pro-Israel stance. Last month, protesters walked out of a commencement speech Seinfeld gave at the graduation ceremony for Duke University. And at one of Seinfeld’s recent comedy shows in Norfolk, VA, a protester was escorted out of the venue by security after heckling the comedian.
