'Seinfeld' star Jason Alexander to speak in St. Paul


Another "Seinfeld" star is planning a trip to the Twin Cities.

The Star Tribune says Jason Alexander, who played George Costanza on the classic NBC sitcom, will be speaking at the Temple of Aaron in St. Paul Nov. 3.

Alexander will be making the keynote presentation during the temple's "Honoring Our Fathers" fundraiser.

The event will honor the memories of the late Edward Paster and Richard "Dick" Shaller, who were both leaders in the local Jewish community, the paper says.

Alexander's presentation will begin at 7 p.m., and the comedy actor is expected to take questions from the audience.

Ticket information is available on the Temple of Aaron website. Admission is $18 for students, $50 for general admission and $100 for reserved seats. Special VIP packages are also available for $2,500.

Meanwhile, "Seinfeld's" namesake star, Jerry Seinfeld, will be bringing his stand-up comedy act to the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis Jan. 16 and 17.

Seinfeld added the extra date to his Minneapolis stop last week. He's doing one show Jan. 16 and two on Jan. 17.
