NEW YORK CITY — What's the deal with Seinfeld?

After a long hiatus from live comedy, Emmy-winning funnyman Jerry Seinfeld is back in action, bringing his stand-up comedy routine to New York City this fall.

The former "Seinfeld" star, who chronicled his return to live comedy with the 2002 documentary "Comedian," will perform five stand-up shows, one in each borough of New York City, in October and November.

"I was born in Brooklyn, went to school in Queens and started out as a comedian in Manhattan. I feel like New York City taught me how to be funny. I'm so excited to perform a special series of shows for my beloved home town," said the comic/actor, in a statement. 

Seinfeld's last official performance in the city was the 1998 Broadway show 'I'm Telling You For The Last Time'.

Tickets go on sale on July 30 at 10 a.m., for shows in all five boroughs. Performances begin at 8 p.m.
