FORT LAUDERDALE – What is the deeeeeal with this week’s Applause Planner?
Well, it’s rather excited that one of the biggest names in comedy is ready to perform in South Florida.
Jerry Seinfeld will take the stage twice on Friday night at the Broward Center For The Performing Arts, with the first show starting at 7 p.m.; the second at 9:30 p.m.
Seinfeld ruled 1990s television with his self-titled comedy series. Simply put, the show about nothing was everything – becoming the very definition of must see TV on Thursday nights.
A few years after the show’s nine-year run, Seinfeld developed a new set of fans with his internet series “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.” In the series’ 10 years Seinfeld drank coffee and discussed the art of comedy with some of biggest names in the business.
But at heart Seinfeld is a stand-up comedian. His observational style endeared him to audiences in the 1980s and his jokes about every day life remain as sharp and relatable some four decades later.
Tickets prices to see Seinfeld begin at $67.50, but aftermarket prices can be significantly higher.
Comedy fans who can’t make either of these shows will receive a second chance. Seinfeld is scheduled to perform at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach on March 17-18.

Preacher Lawson – Palm Beach Improv, West Palm Beach
For those who can’t get enough of the Florida’s Funniest Comedian competition, the Preacher Lawson show is the perfect way to start the new year. Lawson, moved 20 times before the age of 10, but if you asked him what city he’s from he’d say Orlando, because that’s where he grew as a comedian. In 2015 Lawson won the Florida’s Funniest Comedian contest. Since then, Lawson appeared on season 12 of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” He was the host of the Facebook Watch series “World’s Most Amazing Dogs” with George Lopez and Lisa Vanderpump.
