The trailer opens with the comedian onstage, where he tells the audience that he could be anywhere in that exact moment. “If you were me, would you be up here hacking up another one of these?” he asks.
In another joke, Seinfeld acknowledges that everyone’s lives “suck” to some degree. “My life sucks, too,” he says. “Perhaps not quite as much.” The comic says there’s a fine line between when things are “great” and when things “suck” and tells the audience to imagine eating a hot dog while attending a baseball game. “The hot dog is cold. The bun is not toasted,” he says. “You love that hot dog every time. Does it suck? Yes. Is it great? Yes! That’s how close they are.”
23 Hours to Kill is Seinfeld’s second and final stand-up special delivered as part of a deal that he signed with Netflix in 2017. The official trailer follows a James Bond-themed teaser for the special that was released April 23. In the original clip, the comedian escapes being held captive by a supervillain in order to perform the stand-up set in New York City.
In addition to the upcoming stand-up special and 2017’s Jerry Before Seinfeld, Seinfeld’s award-winning series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee also moved to Netflix.
23 Hours to Kill will be available to stream Tuesday. Watch the full trailer below.
