Comedian Jerry Seinfeld will undertake a interborough stand-up residency this fall with five Thursday night shows in October and November. These will be the native New Yorker’s first performances in the city since “I’m Telling You for the Last Time” at the Broadhurst Theater in 1998. Funnyman and former SNL “Weekend Update” anchor Colin Quinn, whom Seinfeld directed in the recent Broadway hit “Long Story Short,” will open the shows.
“I was born in Brooklyn, went to school in Queens and started out as a comedian in Manhattan,” Seinfeld said. “I feel like New York City taught me how to be funny.” Tickets go on sale through individual theater box offices at 10AM on Monday.
Here’s the full schedule:
Beacon Theater, Manhattan on October 4
Lehman Concert Hall, the Bronx on October 11
Colden Auditorium at Queens College on October 18
St. George Theater, Staten Island on November 1
Walt Whitman Theater at Brooklyn College on November 8
