Jerry Seinfeld is officially returning to stand-up stage for the first time in New York City in 14 years (though he has been warming up with surprise appearances). And he's doing New York right, by visiting each of the five boroughs, saying, "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." His last official performance in New York City was in 1998.
The comedian will take the stage on five Thursday nights in October (along with opener Colin Quinn) —and the schedule is below. Tickets go on sale July 30th, and seem to range from $75 to $106 (at least at the Beacon show).
