Jerry Seinfeld

Oct 20 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Jerry Seinfeld @ EKU Center for the Arts

America’s premier comedian, JERRY SEINFELD, returns for the fourth time to the EKU Center to perform his signature stand-up routine. Seinfeld has been hailed for his uncanny ability to joke about the little things in life that relate to audiences everywhere. His comedy career took off after his first appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1981. Eight years later, he teamed up with fellow comedian Larry David to create what was to become the most successful comedy series in the history of television: “Seinfeld.” The show ran on NBC for nine seasons, winning numerous Emmy, Golden Globe, and People’s Choice awards, and was named the greatest television show of all time in 2009 by TV Guide, and in 2012 was identified as the best sitcom ever in a 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll. His latest Emmy nominated Netflix projects to include “Jerry Before Seinfeld” and “23 Hours to Kill” along with the highly acclaimed web series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”

Tickets: $155 / $85 / $65

Join us for dinner at the EKU Center before the concert. Make your reservations online. Cost: $30/Person.
