Jerry Seinfeld faced another round of interruptions from pro-Palestine protesters during his stand-up performance at the renowned Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia this past weekend.

The celebrated comedian, known for his sharp wit and humor, engaged with the disrupters, acknowledging their presence with a touch of sarcasm as he stated, ‘You’re back! They’re back! The protesters are back. I missed you!’

Seinfeld cleverly addressed the protesters directly, highlighting the stark difference in response to his performance by the audience as he added, ‘You’re not doing well. It’s so hard for you. You’ve got to… yes, listen. Dude, listen. Let me explain something.’

As the disruption persisted, Seinfeld humorously compared the situation to being out of place, emphasizing, ‘The problem is, you’re in the wrong place. Do you hear how well I’m doing? This is what you want. You want to do well like I am.’

Further weaving humor into his response, Seinfeld drew attention to the protest’s lack of context, suggesting a more strategic approach for their cause, ‘I think you need to go back and tell whoever’s running your organization, ‘We just gave more money to a Jew.’ That cannot be a good plan for you. That’s not what you want. You’ve got to come up with a better plan.’

In a recent episode of ‘New Yorker’s Radio Hour,’ Seinfeld voiced his concerns about the lack of comedy in today’s television landscape, attributing it to growing concerns over political correctness and the impact of what he termed as ‘PC crap.’

Notably, his former ‘Seinfeld’ co-star and ‘Veep’ actress, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, countered his viewpoint, highlighting the continuous presence of humor in society and pointing out that complaints about political correctness often serve as a red flag.
