"I had a feeling this was going to happen. I have enjoyed doing shows at The Beacon so much it has become a bit of an obsession and I can't stop," said Jerry Seinfeld.
“We are so thrilled to welcome Jerry back for the second year of his wildly successful residency at the Beacon Theatre. His distinctive style of comedy and sense of humor continues to delight and entertain us all,” said Doc O’Connor, president and chief executive officer, The Madison Square Garden Company. “Like The Beacon, Jerry is a true icon of the city and ‘Jerry Seinfeld: The Homestand’ is a uniquely New York event that can only be seen at one of the most historic and special venues in NYC.”
Entertainment icon Jerry Seinfeld’s comedy career took off after his first appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1981. Eight years later, he teamed up with fellow comedian Larry David to create what was to become the most successful comedy series in the history of television: Seinfeld. The show ran on NBC for nine seasons, winning numerous Emmy, Golden Globe and People’s Choice awards, and was named the greatest television show of all time in 2009 by TV Guide, and in 2012 was identified as the best sitcom ever in a 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll.
Seinfeld has also starred in, written and produced movies (Comedian, Bee Movie), directed and produced a Broadway hit (Colin Quinn Long Story Short), and even wrote a best-selling book (Seinlanguage) and a children’s book (Halloween).
Seinfeld directed the off-Broadway production of Colin Quinn: The New York Story and the upcoming Netflix stand-up special.
Seinfeld’s latest project is critically-acclaimed web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, seen exclusively on Crackle and comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com, which has garnered over 100 million views, and which the New York Times describes as “impressively complex and artful” and Variety calls “a game changer.”
Seinfeld resides in New York City with his wife and three children. He remains active as a standup comedy performer, continuously touring both nationally and internationally.
