Hello, Jerry — Seinfeld to hit the Burg in 2015

Share on Nextdoor

Seinfeld (Jerry) will always be associated with "Seinfeld" (the show). And that's a good thing, since he literally re-wrote the desired trajectory for comedians. Sure, other stand-up talents had been given their own show, but none became the phenomenon Seinfeld was.

Since then, Seinfeld has done pretty much whatever he wanted, whether that's voicing animation, hosting a game show or just filming himself getting coffee with other comedy stars. But the stand-up comedian still does stand-up comedy, and he'll be performing at the Mahaffey Theater on April 30 and May 1 next year.

By now, you know what kind of material to expect: Witty, observational comedy often taken to absurd extremes while being just realistic enough to be recognizable and relatable. Just like the show that bore his name. But unlike the television show, which is on all the time, he's performing just three sets over two nights. Showtimes are Thursday at 7 p.m. and Friday at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

And if you want to go, you'll have to act fast: Tickets go on sale Dec. 12 at noon. Get them by visiting the box office at 400 First st St. S. in St. Petersburg, calling 727-893-7832 or visiting TheMahaffey.com.
