While he became a household name with a sitcom about nothing, Jerry Seinfeld got his start in the mid ‘70s doing standup. These days he’s performing in large theaters more often than comedy clubs, and now his schedule includes a date at Sullivan Arena – Thursday, Oct. 25.
“Seinfeld” ran for nine seasons, with the last episode airing in 1998 after the sitcom’s star famously turned down millions of dollars to do another season. These days Seinfeld produces “The Marriage Ref,” a TV show in which a panel of celebrities listens to the marital disputes of real-life partners and determines a winner.
Tanya Pont, Sullivan Arena’s director of marketing, said that the comedian’s booking agency reached out to the venue looking for new markets in which to send the standup. Seinfeld will also perform the next night at the Carlson Center in Fairbanks.
Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, Sept 14, at Ticketmaster outlets, ranging from $60 to $99 (service charges not included).
