As a leader in live entertainment, The Madison Square Garden Company continues to innovate and create unique, one-of-a-kind experiences for artists and fans alike. In 2014, The Madison Square Garden Company originated the concept of a music franchise outside of Las Vegas, with the ongoing monthly Billy Joel shows at The Garden – now at a history-making 61 performances. The company has created multiple, successful additional unique bookings and residencies across the portfolio of MSG’s venues, including with Dave Chappelle at Radio City, Phish’s 13-night Baker’s Dozen run at The Garden, Jerry Seinfeld’s ongoing Beacon Theatre residency, and the unprecedented multi-year, dual-city residency of Tedeschi Trucks Band at both The Beacon and The Chicago Theatre.
Entertainment icon Jerry Seinfeld’s comedy career took off after his first appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1981. Eight years later, he teamed up with fellow comedian Larry David to create what was to become the most successful comedy series in the history of television: “Seinfeld.” The show ran on NBC for nine seasons, winning numerous Emmy, Golden Globe and People’s Choice awards, and was named the greatest television show of all time in 2009 by TV Guide, and in 2012 was identified as the best sitcom ever in a 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll.
Seinfeld has also starred in, written and produced movies (“Comedian,” “Bee Movie”), directed and produced a Broadway hit (“Colin Quinn Long Story Short”), and even wrote a best-selling book (“Seinlanguage”) and a children’s book (“Halloween”).
Seinfeld directed the off-Broadway production of “Colin Quinn: The New York Story” and the Netflix stand-up special.
Seinfeld made his Netflix debut with the original stand-up special “Jerry Before Seinfeld.” His latest project on Netflix is the Emmy-nominated and critically acclaimed web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” which has garnered over 100 million views, and which the New York Times describes as “impressively complex and artful” and Variety calls “a game changer.”
Seinfeld resides in New York City with his wife and three children. He remains active as a standup comedy performer, continuously touring both nationally and internationally.
