Jerome Seinfeld

So on Saturday, 19th July (this is for my own reference) , we went to laugh at and with Seinfeld . On the wednesday of that week, Gourav told me about Seinfeld coming and thus started a frantic search for the best tickets. It was a tad bit expensive, but oh-so-worth-it :)

So we reached well in advance, anticipating traffic problems. We had really good seats (center). Promptly at 7, the opening act started. It was some guy who's fairly popular, but we had never heard of him. He was really funny! For the life of me, I cannot remember any of his jokes, but they were good.

And then came the man himself, he got a standing ovation. It was rather impressive the way he joked about Dallas and the North Tollway, making us feel like he loved our city as much as we did. Oh and the 'heat'. He didn't do the 'What's the deal with...' routine, which was cool. He did do 'Hello Newman' and pointed out some of the funniest things about everyday things. Like *69, blackberry, the cellphone is now superior than face to face conversations and such. He's one helluva guy. The QnA section was funny too, with people asking him 'do you miss george' and his response 'naeh, it's hard to miss fictional people'.

So happy that we got to see Seinfeld. I feel like I've seen one legend in this lifetime atleast. :)
