This stand-up show got all of Jerry's greatest material and are told with such great body language. Jerry are here showing that he can stand on an empty stage with just a glass of water and make you laugh for 78 minutes. The different jokes are so well mixed together that it forms a whole story at the end.
I think this show can make anybody laugh even though they don't like the "Seinfeld show". But if you are a Seinfeld fan,this is a MUST.
This is truly the best stand-up show ever.
