Giddyup “Seinfeld” fans, Jerry’s back!

Jerry Seinfeld is returning to the stand-up stage and channeling his life before fame in a new Netflix special due out on Sept. 19.

He’ll be taking the stage at the club where it all began: The Comedy Strip on the Upper East Side.

“It was like my little gay closet moment, mom, dad, I don’t know how to tell you this, but I’m a funny person,” he explained in one of his old jokes.

Seinfeld also returned to his childhood home for the special and shared home movies and images of himself as a kid.

The special, “Jerry Before Seinfeld,” was announced back in January as part of two stand-up specials and more “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”
