Jerry Seinfeld, a born and bred New Yorker, will further solidify his Big Apple icon status with a stand-up comedy residency at the famed Beacon Theatre next year. As part of the arrangement with the Upper West Side venue, the former Seinfeld star will perform once a month throughout 2016.

“My favorite theater in New York to perform in has always been The Beacon. Comedians live for certain houses that just feel ‘alive’ for some reason,” the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee funny man said in a statement. “The Beacon is that place for me and I am so excited to make it my new home.”

The first six dates of the residency have been announced: January 7th, February 18th, March 2nd, April 14th, May 5th, and June 8th. Tickets go on sale beginning December 7th.

Madison Square Garden, the parent company of the Beacon, has set up a similar type of residency for Billy Joel at its eponymous Manhattan arena.
