Net­flix re­cently signed Jerry Se­in­feld to a $140 mil­lion deal, pri­mar­ily to be the new home for his hit in­ter­view se­ries Co­me­di­ans In Cars Get­ting Cof­fee (new episodes of which will be re­leased by year’s end). To gain some quick trac­tion with Net­flix’s mas­sive global au­di­ence, the pop­u­lar fun­ny­man has whipped up an en­gag­ing con­cert-doco where he re­vis­its and per­forms the first in­car­na­tion of his stand-up act. Though many of the jokes are al­most 40 years old, they hold up re­mark­ably well. Not just be­cause Se­in­feld’s mi­croob­ser­va­tional hu­mour was never all that time-sen­si­tive. No, what we learn here is that Se­in­feld still boasts the best de­liv­ery style of any vet­eran co­me­dian still on ac­tive duty.
