As some avid Jerry Seinfeld fans will recall, the critically-acclaimed comedian and “Seinfeld” co-creator signed an $100 million deal with Netflix back in January, giving the streaming service the rights to the previously produced nine seasons of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” an exclusive 10th season of the show and  two original stand-up specials.

One of those specials will be titled “Jerry Before Seinfeld” and will debut on Sept. 19. “In the hour-long special, Jerry Seinfeld returns to The Comic Strip in New York City for an intimate stand-up ​set at the club that helped launch his career,” Netflix stated in a press release, according to The Huffington Post. “Interspersed with never-before-seen material ― including a library of legal pads with every joke he’s written since 1975, childhood videos, and more ― Jerry performs the jokes that put him on the comedy map.”

Seinfeld is not the only comedian to have been poached by Netflix, but they are certainly excited to have the comedy legend added to their roster. “Jerry is known the world over as both a great TV innovator and beloved comic voice,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix. “We are incredibly proud to welcome him to the Netflix comedy family.”

So, for those subscribers who have missed that high-pitched whiny voice, fear not—in a few shorts weeks you will be able to stream a brand new stand-up special, exclusive for you (and the rest of Netflix).
