ZOMG. Catch your breath, everyone. This is possibly the best morning news we've received in...well, ever! The legendary Jerry Seinfeld, who has not set foot on a standup stage in NYC since 1998 (and subsequently broke our hearts by ending Seinfeld the same year) will be performing a series of shows throughout NYC's five boroughs starting October 4th. (!!!!)
We can't wait to see what he's got up his sleeve this time around. Tickets start around $75 and up and go on sale July 30th at 10am ET. Check out the schedule below:
Let's face it, comedy is a hard business. Even the Jerry Seinfelds and Jon Stewarts of the world have their share of hecklers. Hell, Louis C.K. made a career out of telling people how much his life sucks. So it's a wonder that there are any newcomers who want to join the club. Lucky for us, New York has always been the epicenter of standup, and after all the abuse, an exciting new crop of comics have arrived on the scene. So if you can't score the Chris Rock tickets, rest easy. These are New York's up and comers:
The famed nest of comic granddaddy’s Jerry Seinfeld, Sandra Bernhert, and Jay Leno, Carolines is legendary throwback New York. Long before websites held claim to the depressing majority of our attention and days, and back when New York was, how can we say, unplugged—nightlife revolved around the stage. It was the 80’s, an era responsible for our modern definition of diva, pop star, meth, and the standup comedian. Caroline’s has grown out of its once grungy aesthetic, as with most relics from the emergent New York glory days, into “America’s” mature “Premier Comedy Nightclub,”—an honorable mention on any City Sights tour. History is fluid, but funny stays the same.
Lady Gaga has reportedly enlisted the help of Saunders & Associates in a search to find a summer home to purchase in the Hamptons.
She is looking particularly in Sagaponack, East Hampton, Water Mil, and Bridgehampton, all of which are south of the Montauk Highway. Other celebrities who own homes in the Hamptons include Jerry Seinfeld, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Steven Spielberg.
Remember last week when Lady Gaga flipped off the paparazzi at a Mets game? Well it turns out that the private box she was sitting in when she used the gesture actually belonged to Jerry Seinfeld.
Gaga was moved to the VIP box after she claimed she was feeling "camera shy" and wanted more privacy. Strange, considering her outfit choice.
Many consider Seinfeld to have been the greatest television show ever created. And the cast of the show never rebounded to such great height ever again (especially Kramer). However, Larry David is once again lending his genius to help the struggling actors, giving them a chance to revive their careers on a new several-show arc on the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
HBO has confirmed that Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards will appear in several episodes of "Curb” in the first weeks of the show.
Unfortunately, the characters will be playing themselves, which means Jason Alexander will be serious, Julia will be calm and reasonable, and Michael Richards will try to bite any African Americans on the show. But at least Jerry will be himself.
It's been over a decade since Jerry Seinfeld graced our TV sets in a weekly comedy but he's baaaaaack. Seinfeld will produce a reality series called "The Marriage Ref" where celebrities, comedians and a variety of other stars will weigh in on a real couple's very real marriage problems. Couples will be judged on who's in the wrong and be offered sage advice from the bevy of moderators. Seinfeld will work mostly behind the scenes but we're sure the funnyman won't be able to resist a few guest appearances. The actor assured E! "This is not a therapy show, it's a comedy show." But you have to wonder what lasting effects these celebrity "professionals" will leave on the real world couple set to be featured. Guess we'll find out this fall when the series premieres!
