Comedian Jerry Seinfeld is bringing his stand-up routine back to the Eastern Kentucky University Center for the Arts on May 9.
Seinfeld’s first appearance at the EKU Center came in its first fall of operation, 2011. According to an EKU Center news release, that show filled the 2,100-seat concert hall to capacity.
Seinfeld is of course known for his eponymous NBC sitcom that dominated Thursday nights through most of the 1990s. Now, like many other entertainers, Seinfeld’s main venue is the Internet, where he has a hit web series with Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The show features Seinfeld, an unabashed car enthusiast and collector, picking up comedian friends in specially selected rides to go get a cup of joe and talk about their lives and careers. Among them are Howard Stern in a 1969 Pontiac GTO, because like the shock jock it does not go quietly, or Seth Meyers in a no-nonsense 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS.
Tickets for Seinfeld’s EKU show at 7 p.m. May 9 go on sale at 9 a.m. March 28.
