Jerry Seinfeld Returns to Kennedy Center

Jerry Seinfeld Returns to Kennedy Center

 

Jerry Seinfeld is back and performing stand-up at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall this August.

Seinfeld has a unique style of stand-up that allows him to joke about the little things in life that everyone can relate to. Unlike other comedians, Seinfeld doesn't use a lot of profanity, which is great when you want to bring your parents!

He will be at the Kennedy Center for three shows beginning August 3.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, May 18 at 10 a.m. with prices ranging from $69 - $88. 

Tickets are also available online at www.kennedy-center.org or at the Kennedy Center Box Office (2700 F Street NW)  or by phone 202-467-4600.
