Seinfeld to Return to Charleston in Dec.

By Bill Lynch

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld will return to Charleston on Dec. 12 at the Charleston Municipal Auditorium.

Seinfeld, who recently appeared in a series of commercials for Microsoft's Vista and starred in the animated film "Bee Movie," is best known for the critically acclaimed television show "Seinfeld." The show, which ran on NBC from 1989 to 1998 won several Emmy awards, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actor's Guild Award. Re-runs of Seinfeld have been in syndication continuously since the show ended.

Seinfeld, meanwhile, has kept busy with books, comedy tours and the occasional commercial.

Seinfeld's last appearance in Charleston in 2005 was slightly marred by a drunken heckler, who badgered the funnyman by repeatedly calling out "Newman" during Seinfeld's performance. Charleston Gazette reviewer Paul Wilson reported the comedian appeared to cut his performance a few minutes short because of the constant interruptions.

Tickets for the Dec.12 show will go on sale at 10 a.m. Oct. 10. Prices have not been announced.
