Jerry Seinfeld is bringing his unique brand of humour to India for the first time. He is scheduled to perform two shows in Mumbai on March 14 and 15 as a part of the Stage42 festival.

Stage42 is a brand new multi-cultural festival organized by the event management company Only Much Louder. Based in Mumbai, the company also runs the popular NH7 music event.

“I have always been fascinated by India and its culture,” Seinfeld said in a statement.

“I have great respect for its people and their way of life. It is a great honour for me to be invited to come there and make fun of it in person.”

Tickets for Seinfeld’s show went on sale Friday, with prices ranging from $125 to $208 (7,500 rupees-12,500 rupees) per person.
