“We have a genius ladies and gentlemen, he solved the Middle East,” Seinfeld said, as security came to eject the heckler.

“They’re going to start punching you in about three seconds, so I would try to get all of your genius out so we can all learn from you.”

Seinfeld continued to roast the man.

“You’re really influencing everyone here we’re all on your side now, because you’ve made your point so well, and in the right venue, you’ve come to the right place for a political conversation,” he said.

“You have to go 20,000 miles from the problem and screw up a comedian, that is how you solve world issues.”

Seinfeld was cheered by the crowd for his comments.

Seinfeld, who is Jewish, made a solidarity visit to Israel in December and met with families of hostages taken by Hamas in the October 7 attack.

The comic is performing at the ICC Sydney Theatre on Tuesday and will also appear in Brisbane, Adelaide, and Melbourne.
