Comedian and television star Jerry Seinfeld is set to perform two shows in Israel at the end of the year, Hebrew media reported Wednesday.

The former star of the hit sitcom that carries his name, Seinfeld is set to put on two shows at the Menora Mivtachim Arena in Tel Aviv on December 30 at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Tickets are expected to cost between NIS 295 ($84) and NIS 1,255 ($357).

Seinfeld, 63, last performed in Israel in December 2015 when he gave four full-house shows in the Menora Mivtachim Arena.

He had planned to put on one show, but three more were added after tickets for the first quickly sold out.

Seinfeld has previously visited in the country on private trips. As he told his Tel Aviv audiences, he volunteered on a kibbutz as a teenager, but his shows were his first performances in Israel.

The entertainer began working as a comic after finishing high school, and was catapulted to fame by his eponymous sitcom, which aired in 1989-1998 and garnered an immense and abiding following.

Seinfeld resumed his stand-up career when the show ended.
