Seinfeld is best known for his ability to make fun of the little things in life, which is totally relatable for audiences.
We are extremely thrilled to be hosting Jerry Seinfeld," said Glen Mikkelsen, CN Centre's entertainment and marketing manager. "This is an extraordinary privilege for Northern B.C., as so far, Jerry Seinfeld is only playing four Canadian dates in 2013, and we are one of those shows. Arguably, Jerry Seinfeld is one of the funniest men of our generation, and one of the premier entertainers in the world. This is a must-see show.
In this week's Vanity Fair poll, the television show, Seinfeld, was voted as the best sitcom in history.
Seinfeld is an Emmy and Golden Globe award winner, born in Brooklyn, New York, who grew up in Massapequa, Long Island. He graduated from Queens College in 1976 and went straight to the New York comedy club circuit.
In 1981, at 27 years old, his career took off when he got his shot at The Tonight Show, then hosted by Johnny Carson. After that he appeared on Late Night with David Letterman and The Merv Griffin Show and Seinfeld became one of the leading standup comedians in the business.
In 1989, Seinfeld teamed up with Larry David, another standup comedian, to create the Seinfeld Chronicles for Castle Rock Entertainment. The show led to NBC's Seinfeld, one of the most successful series in the history of television.
The show ran for nine seasons and earned many awards, including the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series in 1993 and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series in 1995, 1997 and 1998.
In 1998, the final episode aired with 75 million viewers.
Still in syndication, Seinfeld is always a front-runner in the ratings. As a testament to its success in the television landscape, TV Guide's poll of the Greatest Shows of All Time listed Seinfeld as number one.
After retiring from his hit series, Seinfeld immediately returned to stand up, his favourite thing. He showcased his talents during a sold-out, week-long engagement at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City and the last show was telecast live in August 1998 as an HBO special, I'm Telling You for the Last Time.
In 2001, Seinfeld began creating a new act that was chronicled in the documentary Comedian, which gave a behind-the-scenes look at the world of standup.
In 2003, Seinfeld wrote the best-selling children's book Halloween and in 2007 he starred, wrote and produced the DreamWorks animated box office hit, Bee Movie.
His most recent television appearance was with the cast of Seinfeld in the seventh season of the HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm.
