Jerry Seinfeld taking up residency at Beacon Theatre

NEW YORK (AP) -- Beginning in January, fans of Jerry Seinfeld will be able to catch the comedian once a month at a New York City theater.

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."

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.

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