Seinfeld is offering five stand-up shows — one in each New York City borough — on five Thursday nights. The evenings 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 previous 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."
All performances begin at 8 PM.
