Jerry Seinfeld - Jerry Seinfeld Makes Long Awaited Return To Stand-up Comedy

Jerry Seinfeld is to make a return to stand-up comedy some 14 years after he last put in a complete performance at a theatre. Seinfeld is of course hugely well known for his self-titled show of the same name and has appeared in a host of other things since that show wound down in 1998 after nine years. However it was stand-up comedy where he first made his name, gaining an enviable reputation between 1976 and 1989.
Following the finish of 'Seinfeld' in 1998 the 58 year-old returned to the stand-up circuit briefly, but this will be the first time since then that he'll be back behind a microphone. The New York Times reports that the comedian will be performing in each of the five boroughs of New York on Thursdays nights through October and November. In a statement, Seinfeld is quoted as 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."
Seinfeld will reportedly be joined at the show by Colin Quinn, who he recently directed in 'Long Story Short' on Broadway. The shows are scheduled to run from October 4th until November 8th.
