JERUSALEM — Comedian Jerry Seinfeld performed to sold-out audiences in Tel Aviv ove the weekend.

Seinfeld performed two shows on Saturday night and two more on Sunday evening at an 11,000-seat basketball arena. The performances are Seinfeld’s first in Israel.

“Oh my god, I’m in Israel!” he said at the beginning of his first one-hour show.

During his encore, Seinfeld took questions from the audience. He did not discuss the security situation or talk specifically about Israel during his routine.

The comedian, who starred in the eponymous hit TV show in the 1990s, last visited Israel in 2007 when he was promoting “The Bee Movie.”

In 1971, he volunteered on an Israeli kibbutz.
