(NEW YORK) — Jerry Seinfeld will be bringing his comedy back to where it all started this fall with a string of stand-up performances across New York City.
Seinfeld will perform one show in each of the city’s five boroughs — Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Manhattan and the Bronx — in October and November.
“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 said in a statement.
The five performances will be the comic’s first since his sold-out Broadway engagement, “I’m Telling You For The Last Time,” at the Broadhurst Theater in 1998, which was just after his hit show came to an end.
The performances are all slated to take place on Thursday nights, the same night of the week that the iconic 90′s series Seinfeld aired.
Tickets for all five-borough shows go on sale to the general public on Monday, July 30 at 10 a.m. and will cost $76 – $89 for most performances.
