14 years after Jerry Seinfeld’s last show, he’s ready to do his famous signature stand-up presentation well known to the City of New York. He will perform five presentations in each New York City borough, for five straight Thursday nights this fall.
Seinfeld, was born and bred in New York, he began his career as a comedian in the city in the 1970s, besides doing some presentations for benefits or short sets for special occasions in local comedy clubs, he hasn’t done a full length presentation in a theater in NYC since his sold-out Broadway show, ‘I’m Telling You For the Last Time’, in the Broadhurst theater in 1998, a little after his hit TV show Seinfeld finished.
” I was born in Brooklyn, went to school in Queens and started out as a comedian in Manhattan. I feel like New York City taught me how to be funny. I’m so excited to perform a special series of shows for my beloved home town,” said Seinfeld.
Seinfeld’s presentations will be done Thursday nights, just like his famous TV show Seindfled was on- he will have a Colin Quinn, as a special guest. Seinfeld directed his hit Broadway show ‘Colin Quinn: Long Story Short’ in the Helen Hayes theater in 2010-11.
Tickets for the five-borough show will go on sale for the general public Monday July 30th at 10am. All presentations begin at 8pm.
