Jerry Seinfeld Roasts Pro-Palestinian Heckler Who Disrupts Comedy Show

Jerry Seinfeld roasted a pro-Palestine heckler who interrupted his comedy show over the weekend in Sydney, Australia.

In a video shared on X (formerly Twitter) by the Australian Jewish Association, the person could be heard shouting “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” at the Seinfeld creator and star during his stand-up set at the Qudos Bank Arena Sunday.

“We have a genius, ladies and gentlemen. He solved the Middle East!” Seinfeld quipped as the heckler was escorted out of the venue by security. “It’s the Jewish comedians, that’s who we have to get! They’re the ones doing everything.”

As the person continued to chant “Palestine will be free” during their exit, the comedian added, “Go ahead, keep going! They’re going to start punching you in about three seconds so I would try to get all of your genius out so we can all learn from you. It’s a comedy show, you moron! Get out of here.”

“You’re really influencing everyone here. We’re all on your side now, because you’ve made your point so well, and in the right venue, you’ve come to the right place for a political conversation,” Seinfeld joked. “Tomorrow we will read in the paper, ‘Middle East 100 percent solved thanks to man at the Qudos Arena stopping the Jew comedian.’”

The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to Seinfeld’s rep for comment.

The Unfrosted director-writer-star has been outspoken about his support for Israel following the Oct. 7 Hamas attacks. In December, he visited Tel Aviv to meet with the families of hostages. He has also been met with pro-Palestine protests in recent months, including at his Duke University commencement speech and his comedy set at Chrysler Hall in Norfolk, Virginia in May.

Last month, Seinfeld also addressed protesters on the Honestly with Bari Weiss podcast. “It’s so dumb,” he said. “In fact, when we get protesters occasionally, I love to say to the audience, ‘You know, I love that these young people, they’re trying to get engaged with politics … we have to just correct their aim a little bit.’ You know, they don’t seem to understand that as comedians we really don’t control anything.”
