Jerry Seinfeld to donate proceeds from comedy show to Sandy victims
Jerry Seinfeld promises to donate proceeds from his upcoming comedy show in Long Island to Hurricane Sandy victims.
"I grew up on Long Island, and New York City is home," Seinfeld said in a statement to the Associated Press. "This is a tough time for this area, and we're just glad to be able to help in the recovery."
The show was added to Seinfeld's comedy tour and will take place on December 19 at the NYCB Theater in Westbury, Long Island. He and his touring partner, Colin Quinn, plan to donate all proceeds to victims of the superstorm.
The pair also plans to donate revenue from their November 8 show in Brooklyn and their December 6 show in Staten Island.
Seinfeld most recently made headlines after reuniting with "Seinfeld" alums Michael Richards and Larry David in a new web series called, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee."
"Seinfeld," which saw Seinfeld playing a neurotic version of himself, was often touted this way due to its storylines about everyday events. The new web series sees Seinfeld chit-chatting with fellow comedians and actors in cars and also while sipping beverages at cafes.
