“Sein” of the Times
Jerry Seinfeld will be performing his stand-up comedy tonight at the Eisenhower Auditorium at 7 p.m.
This is an incredible opportunity. We grew up with “Seinfeld” on TV. We watch the reruns while we’re supposed to be studying for exams. He is an icon who has consistently made stops in State College to make people laugh, and we have the chance to see him three dimensionally.
Some people may say that Seinfeld’s act is “dated” or “not edgy enough,” and they may be correct. However, Seinfeld’s brilliance comes from his ability to find humor in the simplest aspects of daily life and relay it in a way we all understand. He is the Bruce Springsteen of comedy; telling jokes about the everyman (and woman) for the everyman (and woman).
Unfortunately, the high price of tickets is similar to Springsteen also. According to the Center for the Performing Arts website, tickets are $76 for orchestra seating rows AA to Q, $61 for orchestra seating rows R to ZZ as well as grand tier seating and $46 for balcony seating.
