The king of comedy about nothing is heading to Houston. And the intimate size of his chosen venue ensures it will be quite the hot ticket.

Jerry Seinfeld will be performing his latest standup act at Jones Hall, a theater with a capacity of less than 3,000, on Aug. 15.

Not that Seinfeld needs a huge gate. The co-creator and star of Seinfeld — and much more recently, his own Internet-only show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee — is still the richest actor in Hollywood, earning $400 million last year despite the fact Seinfeld went off the air 16 years ago.

In case you've forgotten how funny Seinfeld still is, here are three quick reminder clips:

1. In honor of Father's Day being right around the corner: Performing on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

2. His spiel on technology and the U.S. Postal Service: Performing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

3. A roundup of his best moments on Seinfeld

Tickets for Seinfeld's Houston night go on sale next Friday, June 13 at 10 a.m. You can get tickets at JonesHall.org, the Jones Hall box office at the Wortham Center, or by phone at 832-487-7041
