Will Seinfeld play the UK?

Jerry hints at London dates

Jerry Seinfeld could be bringing his stand-up show to Britain.

The New York comic says he has been inspired by the London comedy scene, and is ready to perform his act to UK audience.

And the 53-year-old added that that he’s already been in talks with people in Britain, while he’s here promoting his animated Bee Movie.

‘Since I’ve been here I’ve been talking of a lot of people about it,’ he told London’s Heart radio station. ‘I think it’s a great idea. I’m going to definitely look into it.

‘The audiences here are great and I haven’t been here for a long time. I think it might be fun.’

Seinfeld last performed in London in 1998, when he sold out two shows at the 2,300-capacity Palladium – even though they were on the same night as the World Cup final. It marked his return to the stage after pulling the plug on his hit sitcom earlier that year, and he has been touring the US, on and off, ever since.
