Jerry Seinfeld returning to New York comedy roots

The Seinfeld star has announced a string of live dates in his native Big Apple from 4 October to 8 November (12), when he will perform a full routine in each of the city’s five boroughs.

He says, “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.”

The funnyman will be supported on the mini-tour by fellow comedian Colin Quinn.

Seinfeld last hit the New York stage in 1998.
