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.” Don’t miss this legendary, award-winning comedian as he kicks-off the Eldorado Great Italian Festival weekend live at the Reno Events Center on Friday, Oct. 9. This performance is presented by THE ROW – Eldorado, Circus Circus and Silver Legacy.
“Seinfeld” 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. In 2012, it 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”). He also directed the off-Broadway production of “Colin Quinn: The New York Story” and a 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.”
