Seinfeld plans N.Y.C. stand-up tour

NEW YORK, July 25 (UPI) -- Jerry Seinfeld has announced he will perform stand-up comedy shows in each of New York City's five boroughs this fall.

He has not performed a full-length show in his hometown since his sold-out Broadway engagement, "I'm Telling You for the Last Time," at the Broadhurst Theater in 1998, shortly after the final episode of his iconic TV show, "Seinfeld," aired.

"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 hometown," Seinfeld said in a statement.

Seinfeld's five-borough performances will all take place on Thursday nights -- the same evening his sitcom originally aired -- starting at the Beacon Theatre in Manhattan Oct. 4. His new stage show will feature special guest Colin Quinn, whom Seinfeld directed in the hit Broadway show, "Colin Quinn: Long Story Short," at the Helen Hayes Theater in 2010-11.
