Jerry Seinfeld

When: Fri., June 26, 7 p.m. 2009

Whether you realize it or not, your life has been influenced by the sitcom Seinfeld. One of the first postmodern sitcoms to make it to prime-time, this show took off mostly due to the snappy and quick-witted humor of Jerry Seinfeld, who plays a fictionalized version of himself on the show. Basing much of the plot off of real-life encounters, the eccentric cast of Seinfeld offers comedic commentary on the ridiculous plights of these various personas, putting a whole new spin on what is “normal.” Ranging from the handicap spot debacle, to constant run-ins with Jerry’s arch-nemesis Newman the mailman, to avoiding girlfriends instead of breaking up with them, the cast’s ridiculous antics always left its audience in stitches. And it was Jerry who was in the middle of it all. Now, lucky Charlestonians, Jerry is coming straight to us. Cozy up at the Performing Arts Center for a night of belly laughs with the man who brought you the Soup Nazi and “yada, yada, yada.” Honestly, where would we be without the term “close-talker”? No, I don’t mean the salad at Moe’s, but see, there it is again — Seinfeld sneaking into your everyday life. It was Jerry who coined that all-too-useful nickname, and he’s sure to leave you with more fun euphemisms as the night goes on. With his nasally voice and dead-pan observations of people and all the weird stuff they do, bet on a night of side-splitting, uproarious fun. —Allie Rice
