Thirty years later, this taunt by a Massachusetts heckler still haunts Jerry Seinfeld. – Enterprise News


When it comes to hecklers, there’s no shortage of them in Massachusetts, whether it has to do with sports, or even comedy shows.

Just ask legendary comedian Jerry Seinfeld.

Seinfeld is currently doing publicity for his new film, “Unfrosted,” which comes out this Friday, May 3, on Netflix. The movie – which is loosely based on the story about the creation of Pop-Tarts – is his feature directorial debut.

In the course of doing publicity for the film, Seinfeld recalled a nightmarish experience while doing a stand-up show in Boston.

What happened to Jerry Seinfeld in Boston?

Over thirty years ago back in 1993, Seinfeld was in Boston for a show when a heckler called him out.

“I had this amazing bit about weddings. It was fantastic. It was so long, and it covered everything. It was a great bit, and I worked on it and worked on it,” he told sport’s journalist Graham Bensinger recently on his YouTube show, “In Depth with Graham Bensinger.” “And I love developing and polishing every little detail of a bit. So it takes me forever.”

Apparently, at that particular gig, Seinfeld started in on a bit before being interrupted.

“I start into the bit and somebody yells, ‘Heard it,’” Seinfeld told Bensinger in a recent interview. “And that was a tough one. I still think about it. It was mean. It was true.”

Comedian Adam Sandler was the opening act that night.

Why is Seinfeld talking about that Boston show?

Seinfeld is doing publicity for his new movie, “Unfrosted,” about the invention of “Pop-Tarts.”

According to Netflix, “Unfrosted” is “set in Michigan in 1963, the year before Pop-Tarts hit grocery store shelves.” Seinfeld directs, co-wrote and also stars in the movie, according to Netflix.

Seinfeld said in an interview with Netflix that the movie is based on real events, but takes liberties when it comes to the story.

The movie also stars Melissa McCarthy, Jim Gaffigan, Amy Schumer, Hugh Grant, Max Greenfield, Christian Slater, Bill Burr, among others.
