For The Rest Of Us

Jerry Seinfeld has so irreversibly permeated pop culture with his affection for life's "nothing" moments and mimicable intonations that it's hard for us to imagine he's anything but an apartment-dwelling, cereal-loving, serial dater and detail-obsessive. The thought of seeing him in person, on a stage, delivering jokes that are neither plot-relevant nor sandwiched by conversations with Elaine Benes and interruptions from Cosmo Kramer is a little too out-there for out TV-addled minds to comprehend.

Nevertheless, the real, actual Seinfeld will be on Comerica Theatre's real-life stage on Saturday, September 22. And, as much as it may seem like worlds (real and TV set) are colliding, we think it'll probably make for a worthwhile experience. After all, we won't be the ones sacrificing a piece of our personality (What would we do without Bawdy George?). Instead, it'll be Seinfeld breaking from his familiar mold when he performs at 400 West Washington Street at 7 p.m.

Sat., Sept. 22, 7 p.m., 2012
