Seinfeld will perform five stand-up shows – one in each New York City borough – on five Thursday nights this fall. The evenings will feature special guest Colin Quinn, who Seinfeld directed in Broadway's Colin Quinn: Long Story Short at the Helen Hayes Theater in 2010-11.
In a statement the comic/actor said, "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."
Seinfeld has not performed a full show in New York City since his sold-out Broadway engagement, I’m Telling You For The Last Time, at the Broadhurst Theater in 1998, shortly after the final episode of his TV show, "Seinfeld."
Tickets for all five shows will go on sale to the general public July 30 at 10 AM ET. All performances begin at 8 PM.
