Comedy is back in NYC with Jerry Seinfeld
(PRWEB) July 28, 2012
For the first time in fourteen years, Jerry Seinfeld is returning to the stage this fall with a 5-day tour of New York City's five boroughs. The tickets, which go on sale to the general public on Monday, July 30 at 10:00 a.m. EST, will likely sell out quickly as the demand is expected to far exceed the supply. But tickets are already available on the secondary market at sites like CheapSeatsTickets.com.
"Anytime you have a comedian like Jerry Seinfeld on stage, the demand for tickets is going to be huge," said CheapSeatsTickets.com owner Matthew Brenner. "Couple that with only five shows and you can be sure ticket prices are going to be at a premium."
The tour opens on Thursday, October 4, 2012 at the Beacon Theater in Manhattan. The Beacon seats less than 3,000 people and you can be sure New York City's 8 million plus residents will be vying for a ticket. Experts believe tickets will sell out quickly leaving most with options on the secondary market.
"It's really a once in a lifetime kind of opportunity to see [Seinfeld] in a stand-up performance because he just doesn't tour much," commented Brenner. And with pause "he doesn't really have to. But we'll definitely have tickets and some of the best seats in the house available to our clients."
Seinfeld's second stop is on October 11 at the Lehman Concert Hall in the Bronx. He'll be at the Colden Autitorium at Queens College on October 18 and at the St. George Theatre in Staten Island on November 1. The tour ends on November 8 in Brooklyn at the Walk Whitman Theater at Brooklyn College.
All shows are on Thursday and start at 8:00pm as a tribute to the time-slot held by the 10-time Emmy award winning show "Seinfeld."
Slated to open for Seinfeld is fellow comedian and former MTV host Colin Quinn. Quinn, who also appeared on Broadway in the 2010 Seinfeld-directed show "Long Story Short" is expected to draw a crowd of his own.
It's certainly going to be an event many will not want to miss. And with tickets already available on the secondary market, there's no reason to!
