All Critics (14) | Top Critics (6)

It's wry observation and it is as intensely funny as it is an intense avoidance of anything political or dark.

It's the best kind of minimalist comedy television. Just a comic, a mic, a stage and an audience.

He tends to start with a small idea, then figure out the big idea behind his observation, then figure out the shortest way to communicate the absurdity of that imbalance - the absurdity of putting so much stock into the smallest thing possible.

Top Critic

It's still quintessential Seinfeld, poking fun at cereal and air travel and prepositions, but his set is looser, intimate and more biographical, a rebrand for the podcast age.

There's always another bon mot, and the occasional dud humor in Jerry Before Seinfeld in no way detracts from the larger pleasures of watching this peerless comedian pay tribute to his roots.
