Jerry Seinfeld Comes to Morristown

Stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld Comes to Morristown at MPAC! He’s best known for his T.V. series Seinfeld and Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, started his 2022-2023 comedy tour with a recent performance to a sold-out crowd at the Mayo Performing Arts Center (MPAC) in Morristown.

Comedian and actor Mario Joyner was the opening act, setting the stage for laughter that filled the theater for the evening’s two back-to-back shows. Joyner, who is friends with Seinfeld as well as comedian Chris Rock, made fun of having a male maid, instead of a female, at the local high-end Westin Governor Morris Hotel, waking up to “Yo man, you got to get up to make this bed.” This story sent all who hail from the area into a frenzy of laughter. His segment on his prostate exam and the doctor’s use of a finger instead of some modern piece of equipment, was something at least 50 percent of the audience could relate to. There’s no denying his comedy bit set the mood for the headliner Seinfeld.

Seinfeld’s comedy is observational, and he is a master of his craft.

Seinfeld made fun of all the stupid things people often say.

“Can you believe this weather?” “Yes, I can.”

He then launched into a routine about the way New Yorkers speak. “You can live ‘in’ the city, but you live ‘on’ Long Island. You can live ‘in’ The Hamptons, but you don’t live ‘on’ them.” But he didn’t stop there, and the theatergoers loved it.

“We don’t get ‘on’ a car, we get ‘in’ it,” Seinfeld said and then brought the house down with “We don’t get ‘in’ an Uber, we ‘take’ it.”

Telling the audience he’s not sure he likes food, he introduced a series of jokes about the subject, specifically the Swanson frozen meals and donut holes. And he continued, giving ten-minute praise of the raisin and getting hearty laughs all around.

He jumped into a discussion on the absurdity of almond milk.

“How did that happen?” Looking at a cow and looking at an almond, “when did they get the stool small enough to slip under the almond?” This segment brought exuberant laughter and applause.

Seinfeld made jokes about kids, marriage, and so much more, but there isn’t a person from the audience who would forget his description of a hospital as “bed, bath, and beyond.”

Seinfeld gave an encore, asking the audience to participate in a quick question-and-answer conversation with him. He’s connected to his followers, making him well-liked and one of the most popular comedians of our generation.

Seinfeld is a class act and can still be funny without cursing.

To grasp Seinfeld’s one-of-a-kind comedy, one has to attend his show, and there are many scheduled dates in the local area and surrounding states. I recommend purchasing a ticket. Jokes don’t play out well when you’re trying to write them in a review; jokes need to be delivered to an audience. And Seinfeld did that, getting a standing ovation for his sensational humor.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

I suppose that the title of my blog post, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, is a little misleading because it turned out to be Dinner at Tiffany’s, or more accurately, Dinner at the Blue Box Café. This Cafe honors the romance of the 1961 film starring Audrey Hepburn. Tiffany’s of course was the romantic setting where the lovely Audrey Hepburn went each morning with a pastry and cup of coffee to have breakfast as she window shopped. You might add Breakfast at Tiffany’s to your movie viewing list if you’ve missed it. The song Moon River will have new meaning for you!
