Jerry Seinfeld will arrive in Israel on Friday, flying in his private plane to Ben Gurion Airport for his four stand-up shows in Tel Aviv’s Menorah Mivtachim Arena.

The stand-up comedian will be staying in the Dan Tel Aviv, with a view of the Mediterranean Sea and a suite filled with complimentary chocolates, petit fours, fresh fruit trays and mineral water, but no butter, carb-filled foods or breads, as requested by Seinfeld.

That could be a directive from Seinfeld’s wife, Jessica Seinfeld, a fan of all things healthy and the author of several cookbooks for kids that focus on pureeing vegetables and hiding them in kid-friendly foods.

So, it may be safe to assume that Seinfeld won’t be eating any marble rye or babka on Friday night, his first night in Israel. He may, however, bump into The Dead Daisies Project, an Australian-American band that will also be staying at the Dan over the weekend, ahead of their Tel Aviv performance on Saturday night, December 19.

Seinfeld will be performing on December 19 and 20, with two performances each night. All four shows are sold out.
