Jerry Seinfeld is settling in New York City's Upper West Side.

"My favorite theater in New York to perform in has always been The Beacon. Comedians live for certain houses that just feel ‘alive’ for some reason,” said Seinfeld of the 2,800-seat venue. "The Beacon is that place for me, and I am so excited to make it my new home."
"Jerry Seinfeld is one of the most influential and respected comedians of all time, and through both his groundbreaking hit series, Seinfeld, and his newest venture, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, he has permanently changed both the modern comedy and television landscapes,” said James L. Dolan, executive chairman of the Madison Square Garden Company. “As a renowned New Yorker whose brand of comedy is rooted in the Big Apple, we are honored to welcome Jerry to The Beacon, his neighborhood theater, for Jerry Seinfeld: The Homestand.”
