I have tickets for Friday the 27th in Reading, PA. I'll post a report after I see the show. Has anyone else seen Jerry in concert? If so, how was the show?

Just saw him this past saturday in Raleigh, NC (flew out there from Nashville, TN).
It's absolutely amazing... all new material. The guy who opened for him was pretty funny too (can't remember his name).
Great stuff!

Yeah... I wasn't expecting that either, but he only does like 15 minutes and it's quality material. His voice sounds exactly like Joe Pesci's, too.

Well, I went and enjoyed it very much. The night started out with standing in a line that was 2 blocks long from the theater entrance to the back of the line. Fortunately it wasn’t too cold out. Everybody in line seemed to be buzzing with excitement and I heard numerous people spouting out lines and bits from the Seinfeld TV show. Once the theater doors opened, the line moved quickly so it wasn’t all that bad of a wait. There was an opening act that lasted about 15 minutes. The comedian was named Tom Popa and his stuff was funny. He told us that he would be starring in a new sitcom starting this summer or fall on NBC. When Jerry came on stage he received about a 3 minute ovation. It was so loud he couldn’t say a word so he just waved and acknowledged the crowd. When things settled down, he got us laughing quickly. All the material he did was new to me. I thought there might be some bits that I recognized but everything was new so that was great. He never sits down and breaks for only a few seconds to take a gulp of water. His show lasted for an hour. I thought he may have drug it on a little too long at the end and maybe should have stopped about 10 minutes earlier. I find it amazing that a guy can talk about things that happen in everyday life and put his little spin on it and make us laugh so hard. I would rate the show 7.5 out of 10. I recommend that fans of the Seinfeld show try to see him if you get a chance. The tickets can be a bit pricy, I paid $75 to sit in the balcony but I know some folks paid several hundred to sit close. Oh yeah, I almost forgot. There was a women sitting several rows behind me that reminded me of Toby from The Fire Read the script of The Fire Download the full epiosde video of The Fire Discuss The Fire episode. You know, the red head that Kramer brought to see Jerry in the comedy club. This women howled at everything but didn’t heckle like Toby did. Overall, I had a great time. Giddy-up. Very Happy Very Happy
