An Old TV Friend...

"Hey, we're in NORTH Charleston...not the other one," Jerry Seinfeld said as he opened his show Friday night.

The Performing Arts Center (PAC) was packed and the SRO crowd loved Jerry.

I had seen him here twice before and both times were downtown at the Gaillard Auditorium.

He is a master at Stand Up and so well rehearsed that it looks easy. Almost like "Oh yeah, then I had this thought."

And, very, very funny.

Cameras were tolerated this evening so I was comfortable snapping shots from the 10th row. He did make a comment to people in the very front rows "Hey, is a flash REALLY necessary?"

(When I saw Robin Williams up in Charlotte, he specifically asked that no pictures be taken. Not even a cell phone was raised.)

Respect the artist.

My camera did give me a surprise when a slow shutter speed captured his comedy aura.

He just celebrated his 10th wedding anniversary so he laughed when someone in the audience asked if he was the "Master of his Domain."

He said he didn't have a favorite episode of his great television series but did relish certain moments like when he got to steal a loaf of rye bread from the little old lady and when George's girlfriend died from licking tainted wedding invitation envelopes.

The star of "a show about nothing" had some great material. Come back again Jerry. Real soon.
