Jerry Seinfeld returns to MGM Grand at Foxwoods

Published August 01. 2013 4:00AM

After co-creating and starring in the pop-culture touchstone known as "Seinfeld," did Jerry Seinfeld really have to do anything else?

Of course not.

And not just because he'd become laughably rich. It's also because, well, it's nearly impossible to top something of "Seinfeld's" success and influence.

So Jer is not sweating to out-do that seminal sitcom. Here, though, is what he IS doing:

• He's going to get coffee. And driving there in a small car. And writing shotgun is another comedian. It's a clever exercise in low-key comedy: a web series titled "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" that finds Seinfeld just chatting and riffing with different comics.

• He's watching the New York Mets - and chastising bad fan behavior at the All-Stars Game. Seinfeld, who was watching the game in the stadium, said afterward, "These are the best players, in the game you love, that have come here to put on a show for you, and we're booing them like five-year-olds as if there's some sort of real animosity."

• He's doing stand-up. That is, after all, something he loves. He'll be doing his comedy Saturday at MGM Grand at Foxwoods. Go and laugh.
