Comedian Jerry Seinfeld will return to Pittsburgh’s Benedum Center for two shows, at 7 and 9:30 p.m. March 8.

Tickets starting at $52 go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Nov. 16. Tickets will be available from these official Pittsburgh Cultural Trust ticket sources: by phone at 412-456-6666; in person at Theater Square Box Office, 655 Penn Ave.; or online at trustarts.org.

Seinfeld has been hailed for his ability to joke about the little things in life that relate to audiences everywhere, according to a release. His latest projects include the Emmy-nominated web series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” and a Netflix special, “Jerry Before Seinfeld.”

“Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” has garnered more than 100 million views, the release says.

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 one of the most successful comedy series in the history of television, “Seinfeld,” a “show about nothing” that ran for nine seasons on NBC and won numerous Emmy, Golden Globe and People’s Choice awards.

“Seinfeld” 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, the release says.

Seinfeld also has starred in, written and produced movies; directed and produced a Broadway hit; and written books for both adults and children.

Most recently, he has been performing at New York’s Beacon Theatre as part of a year-long residency entitled “Jerry Seinfeld: The Homestand.”

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
