After finding success with two TV shows — first on NBC with “Seinfeld,” followed by a good digital run for “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” — Jerry Seinfeld says his latest obsession is his residency at New York’s Beacon Theater.
The New York Times reports that Seinfeld will be doubling up on his live performances at the venue, with 12 more now planned for the first half of 2017.
Seinfeld began his residency back in January and has been performing one live concert a month, under the banner “The Homecoming.” The final show was to take place in December, until the Long Island-raised comedian extended the run and ramped up the schedule.
In a statement, Seinfeld said: “I had a feeling this was going to happen. I have enjoyed doing shows at the Beacon so much it has become a bit of an obsession and I can’t stop.”
Tickets reportedly go on sale Nov. 16 at 10 a.m. for shows Seinfeld will perform twice nightly on Jan. 5, Feb. 9, March 16, April 13, May 18 and June 8.
Meanwhile, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” continues to run on Crackle, with Seinfeld said to be shopping the series to other TV outlets.
