Jerry Seinfeld Unable to Participate GARDEN OF LAUGHS

Jerry Seinfeld, previously announced as part of a star-studded lineup, will be unable to attend the Garden of Laughs fundraiser for The Garden of Dreams Foundation at The Theater at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, March 28th. Instead, Seinfeld announced that he would donate the proceeds from an upcoming 2017 show at the Beacon Theatre to the Foundation.

"I'm sorry to say that I will be unable to appear at the Garden of Laughs event on March 28th, at MSG Theater in NYC, as I had hoped," said Jerry Seinfeld on Facebook. "I am disappointed not to be able to join my friends Leslie Jones, Sebastian Maniscalco, Tracy Morgan, John Oliver, and Chris Rock - a Murderers' Row of comedy lineup - at this great event. Garden of Dreams does important work for kids, and so I will be donating all proceeds from one of my 2017 Beacon Theatre shows to the Foundation - stay tuned for more details after the New Year."

The date of Seinfeld's future donated show for Garden of Dreams will be announced in coming weeks. In addition, Seinfeld has agreed to headline the biennial Garden of Laughs benefit in 2019.
