Jerry Seinfeld Puts On His Director Hat!

Inneresting to see him taking a more behind-the-scenes approach, especially in this medium!

Jerry Seinfeld is currently hard at work as the director of comedian Colin Quinn's upcoming one-man-show on Broadway, Colin Quinn Long Story Short, which premieres on October 22nd!

For those who don't like long, drawn out productions, worry not, because apparently neither of these guys do, either! The show clocks in at around 75 minutes, and with no intermission!

Seinfeld jokes:

“We wanted to sell the idea of, We’re going to get you out of here. We know that when most people go to a show, their first thought is, when am I getting out of here? I didn’t particularly want to direct his show. But, we realized if I don’t direct, we’re going to have to meet a third person.”

LOLs!

We actually would imagine that Seinfield will be more than adept as a director, and we're pretty curious to see how audiences respond to the show!

What do U think?? Do U want to see Colin Quinn Long Story Short??

comics attend greg giraldos wake and set up fund for his sons

Nice to see the comedy community coming together to pay their respects.

Many famous comedians showed up for Greg Giraldo's wake in the Hamptons, including Jon Stewart, Chris Rock, Sarah Silverman, Jeff Ross, Bobby Kelly, Jim Norton, and Colin Quinn.

For an event filled with some of the funniest people in the world, Giraldo's wake was described as "very sad and emotional."

A group of Giraldo's comedian friends have set up a fund to support and educate his three young sons, which we think is a wonderful gesture!

R.I.P Greg Giraldo. You leave behind many caring friends, family members, and fans.
