Seinfeld’s Comeback Show Is A Huge Deal For His Wallet

The streaming service also announced what’s coming on the platform this September, and the content it’s totally reloaded.

Jerry Before Seinfeld

Netflix announced on Tuesday the release date of Jerry Seinfeld‘s anticipated comedy special.In order to celebrate the first official footage from ‘Jerry Before Seinfeld’, Netflix started up new social media accounts specifically tied to its stand-up comedy.

Jerry Steinfeld did the same and expressed his excitement on coming back to stand-up ‘Jerry Before Seinfeld’ will showcase the pre-NBC years when Jerry Steinfeld was kicking it around New York as an observational comic.

The special will incorporate never-before-seen material, including childhood videos and legal pads with every joke he’s written since 1975.

And since it’s a comedy special after all and not a documentary, through-line performance we will see Jerry taking the stage at the famed New York City venue The Comic Strip, which played a big role in getting his career off the ground.

Jerry Seinfeld’s stand-ups come as huge news for fans. Outside of the occasional late-night appearance, it’s been way too long since we’ve seen Seinfeld perform stand-up on TV, nearly 20 years.

His last stand-up special, “I’m Telling You for the Last Time,” aired in 1998. Seinfeld is not the only comedian to make a big comeback on Netflix. Dave Chappelle’s three-part stand-up special debuted in March and David Letterman announced earlier this month that he is bringing a new talk show to Netflix.

Seinfel landed a huge Netflix deal

‘Jerry Before Seinfeld’ is part of a massive deal the comedian signed with Netflix reportedly for $100 million. The exclusive deal between the streaming service and Seinfeld is basically everything fans of the legendary comedian could ask for. And it’s made up of three arms.

First, starting in January, Netflix is streaming Seinfeld’s show ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,’ which originally was broadcasted by Crackle.

The streaming service debuted the ninth season of the show and is now producing 24 new episodes of the show, in which Seinfeld generally pairs off with another comedian or actor for a car ride and some caffeine-fueled laughs, and the episodes will be released in installments throughout late 2017 and 2018.

Also, all 59 episodes that currently exist are already in Netflix’s library. Second, Netflix is set to produce and film two brand new stand-up comedy specials from Seinfeld, which doubles his current number of specials. The first one is already set to debut on September 19, and we’ll have to wait for the second one.

And the third arm of this deal’s announcement is that Jerry Seinfeld will now be a part of the Netflix Original machine, helping to develop scripted and non-scripted comedy series for the streaming giant.

David Letterman also comes back with a massive deal

Earlier this month, David Letterman announced he’s coming back from retirement for a six episode talk show on Netflix. Reports say the iconic entertainer will be earning an annual salary of 12$ million.

To offer some perspective on this, there are three other TV hosts that have an annual salary equal to $12 million: Conan O’Brien, Anderson Cooper, and Ryan Seacrest.

Of course, David Letterman won’t be earning $2 million an episode for any one particular duty on the new show, but also his work as a producer, writer and assumedly any other duties he’s taking care of. And he’ll probably play a huge part in guiding where this show goes, both behind the camera and in front of it.

David Letterman’s new show will see him sharing interesting stories with some of his favorite celebrities, though only one per show, as they’ll be extended conversations.

As well, he’ll be going out and about in the outside world for comedic segments.
