Jerry Seinfeld to Stand Up for Israel Charity With Beverly Hills Comedy Set

Michael Richards, Mayim Bialik, and Odeya Rush are also expected at gala supporting Magen David Adom, Israel’s national emergency medical response organization

Sitcom hall of famer and star of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” Jerry Seinfeld will take the stage in Beverly Hills for a 30 minute set to benefit charity on October 22, TheWrap has learned.

Seinfeld will be headlining the American Friends of Magen David Adom Red Star Ball. Michael Richards, Mayim Bialik, and Odeya Rush are also expected at the gala.

The AFMDA draws well from the entertainment community with Jay Leno, Wayne Brady, Barbara Walters, former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, Toni Braxton, and Willie Geist attending the group’s events in New York, San Francisco, and L.A. over the past year.

Proceeds from the night will go to support ambulances, emergency medical supplies, and Israel’s only national blood services center. The center is underground, designed to protect Israel’s blood supply from terror attacks and natural disasters. Organizers say it provides 97% of the blood used in the country’s hospitals and 100% of the blood for Israeli defense forces.

Seinfeld has commercial touring dates coming up in Israel, performing four shows over two days in Tel Aviv during the holidays. Back home, Seinfeld is in the midst of a fall tour of weekend dates that does not include L.A. – the closest he is orbiting to Southern California is Denver.

Tickets to this event on October 22 begin at $500 ($180.00 for professionals under age 40) and are available from the AFMDA website.
