Jerry SeinfeldComedy fans at the Comedy Store in Piccadilly Circus last night were in for quite a surprise. After an hour of the regular Wednesday night improv at the Comedy Store, Jerry Seinfeld was brought on stage to a surprised audience, gave him a standing ovation.

He performed for half an hour with “Seinfeldian” observations on topics such as Twitter, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s recent divorce scandal and the Royal Wedding, according to a report. After his set, he he took question from the audience.

The last time Seinfeld performed in the UK was 13 years ago– July 5, 1998 at the Palladium, to be exact. Tickets for the show sold out in less than 30 minutes.

Seinfeld is in London to the O2 Arena this Friday. Tickets from the show range from £70-£100 which has attracted some criticism.

It seems the comedy fans of London have forgiven Seinfeld for his hilarious and potentially offensive comments he made about the Royal Wedding and the Royal Family.
