I really loved this comedy. It is family approved here. Not a bunch of cussing in it or tacky jokes.

I like Seinfeld in concert and thought it was pretty funny, altho my husband fell asleep. But to be fair, he almost fell asleep when I took him to an actual LIVE Seinfeld concert in Nashville several years ago, while I laughed so hard my ribs hurt the next day!

If you thought "yada yada yada" was funny......
(5 out of 5 stars)

"1. How many comics today can make people laugh at the most mundane things in life? 2. How often do you laugh until your belly hurts? Or on the flip side:3. How many times do you watch comedy routines and have to listen to "f" this and "f" that? 4. How often do you turn the TV off or feel offended by the content of the comedy routine? If you want all of 1 & 2 and none of 3& 4, then this is the video to get! So often I'm turned off by comedians who focus on sex and language to get attention. Jerry Seinfeld needs only take real-life, everyday experiences and twist them into comedy genius as only he can. It didn't occur to me that grocery shopping, airline travel, and Halloween would be hilarious subjects. But Seinfeld makes it work. I've watched it many times already and plan to watch it many times more!"
Seinfeld at his best

"Seinfeld live on Broadway is a "no regrets" DVD. Its a great looking performance that puts you in the best seat of the audience. Jerry dishes out over an hour of his best material delivered "for the last time" and it is hilarious even after repeat viewings. You can read some of the jokes on the back of the DVD, but it's Seinfeld's delivery that brings them to life and keeps the jokes fresh and funny. One of the great additions on this DVD that isn't on the tape is an impromptu audience Q & A with Jerry. The audience fires off a variety of what I thought were some pretty dull questions. "How's your new apartment?" "Say, Hello Newman." Jerry answers every one with responses that are as funny as the show material. The disc is not rated but it is funny and great for the whole family. My mom at 60 and my niece who is just eight love watching the VHS of this show again and again. The DVD is even better."
Classic Seinfeld humor

"Jerry Seinfeld is just plain funny, although his brand of humor probably doesn't appeal to some people. He uses some of the most mundane things in life for his material, yet I somehow consider him to possess an intellectual sort of humor. The Seinfeld you get in this performance is basically the same Seinfeld Americans laughed with on television for nine years. A lot of the jokes are familiar, and even those that aren't tend to sound as if they are. I don't think every joke was delivered perfectly in this show, but the consistency of the humor from start to finish is undeniable. The opening is a pretty good one, featuring Seinfeld burying all of his old comedy material in a coffin while some of comedy's big names mourn their loss. Onstage, he jokes about a myriad of topics including airport security, New York cab drivers, old folks in Florida, grocery stores, doctors and medicine, horses, etc. Naturally, there is some material on men and women and the differences between them. While there are a couple of jokes with a somewhat mature theme, by and large Seinfeld's comedy can be enjoyed by young and old alike. The segment about trick-or-treating as a kid and being driven by a constant need for candy would be my pick of the litter in terms of inherent laughs. It really doesn't matter that much if you've already heard these jokes along the way-who hasn't heard the infomercial/Ginsu knife bit before? Seinfeld's delivery makes you want to laugh no matter what. I was a little surprised at the end, though. I was expecting a big joke to end the night with, and then out of the blue Seinfeld thanked the audience and wandered offstage. Naturally, he does make an encore appearance, this type agreeing to answer questions hurled at him from the audience. I enjoyed this segment to some degree, but it wasn't as funny as a few more minutes of scripted comedy would have been. It also seemed rather choppy because it necessarily had to have some filler and dead spots edited out for continuity. This one is really pretty simple: if you were a fan of Seinfeld's television show and delight in his quirky kind of humor, you will certainly enjoy this tape and will no doubt want to watch it on more than one occasion."
