Brooklyn, NY-born stand-up comic, actor, and author Jerry Seinfeld, whose eponymous television series about nothing ran from 1990 to 1998 on NBC, will return to Durham Performing Arts Center for two SOLD OUT performances at 7 and 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 12th.
According to Durham Performing Arts Center:
“Due to popular demand, America’s premier comedian is hitting the road in a return to his first love — stand-up comedy. Hailed as ‘the master stand-up comic of his generation’ and ‘the best comedian of our time’ in a Washington Post article by Tom Shales, Seinfeld has an uncanny ability to joke about the little things in life that relate to audiences everywhere.
“‘We have been looking forward to having comedian favorite Jerry Seinfeld at DPAC for many months and it is great to add this sure to be unforgettable show to our fantastic 2011 events coming this season,’ states DPAC general manager Bob Klaus.
“Seinfeld now sets his sights on performing his material across the country in 2011. His tour will visit the Durham Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Feb. 12th, at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.”
A couple choice Seinfeld observations, courtesy the Internet Movie Database, include:
— “A recent survey stated that the average person’s greatest fear is having to give a speech in public. Somehow this ranked even higher than death which was third on the list. So, you’re telling me that at a funeral, most people would rather be the guy in the coffin than have to stand up and give a eulogy.”
— “I don’t like ‘great’ restaurants. I don’t want to hear the specials. If they’re so special, put ’em on the menu. I don’t want any auditioning foods. When they make the real show, then I will eat them.”
TICKETS: Both shows are SOLD OUT.
