JASON ALEXANDER a.k.a GEORGE CONSTANZA Takes The Stage For Stand-Up Comedy Show
On 01 June 2013
We all know George Constanza but do you know Jason Alexander. He’s one and the same guy. The “Seinfeld” actor takes the stand-up comedy route to enjoy the audience.
His one-man show follows former Seinfeld colleague Michael Richards (Kramer) who also tried to do stand-up comedy but somehow he failed.
Alexander plans a peaceful show. “It’s all very good-natured. I make fun of myself and make fun of everybody else. And, hopefully, it’s a party,” Alexander said in comments to the Regina Leader-Post in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada (via inquisitor.com).
He explained his decision of doing stand-up. “It began with me being asked to host things over the years. People always think that hosting is a no-brainer for anybody because all you have to do is get up and read from their script. Their script is usually terrible, so I had to come up with three to five minutes of some sort of material based on the organization that I was doing it for. My agent advised me that I had enough experience and enough different kinds of material that it would make sense to do a show as myself.”
He will perform in July in Sydney, Australia at Enmore Theatre. His show, “Evening” is a variety show with stand-up comedy, music and Seinfeld Q & A and audience participation.
“It’s not political; it has no magic in it, or any poker in it. Pretty much, if you mixed one of your favorite old-fashioned singers from Vegas with one of your favorite old-fashioned comics from Vegas, that’s what you’d have. You’d have a night with an actor trying to play the part of a comic-entertainer,” Alexander said.
