​Jerry Seinfeld to appear monthly at NYC's Beacon Theatre

The Madison Square Garden Company announced Tuesday that Seinfeld will perform at the Beacon Theatre in Upper Manhattan as part of a residency called "Jerry Seinfeld: The Homestand."

Jerry Seinfeld: What it takes to be a comedian

Seinfeld said in a statement that the 2,800-seat Beacon has always been his favorite New York theater. He says it's a place that feels "alive" for him.

Tickets for Seinfeld's first six shows go on sale online on Dec. 7 and at the Beacon box office on Dec. 8.

The historic theater was acquired by MSG in 2006.

In August, Seinfeld opened up about comedy in an interview with "CBS Sunday Morning": "A laugh is such a pure thing. There's no opinion to it. Almost every other creative field has to suffer the interpretive opinion culture, but not a standup comic. You may not like this guy, but if he's getting laughs, he's gonna work."

The New York comedian's current project is a Web series called "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee."
