Comedian Jerry Seinfeld is returning to the stand-up comedy circuit in New York for the first time in 14 years.

The Seinfeld star has announced a string of live dates in his native Big Apple from October 4 to November 8, when he will perform a full routine in each of the city's five boroughs.

He says, "I was born in Brooklyn, went to school in Queens and started out as a comedian in Manhattan. I feel like New York City taught me how to be funny. I'm so excited to perform a special series of shows for my beloved home town."

The funnyman will be supported on the mini-tour by fellow comedian Colin Quinn.

Seinfeld last hit the New York stage in 1998.
