JERRY SEINFELD

DURHAM PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, DURHAM

FRIDAY, SEPT. 11

It's kind of funny how Jerry Seinfeld—one of the cleanest comics to ever walk the face of the planet—has taken it upon himself to speak for comedians who prefer not to be censored or nitpicked. Last June, during an appearance on The Herd with Colin Cowherd, he said he doesn't perform at colleges because of the politically correct tastes of today's students. ("They don't know what the hell they're talking about," he said.) With the exception of Ellen DeGeneres, it's hard to think of another contemporary comedy star who continues to be as successful by playing it as safe. But considering that Seinfeld is practically a wise elder statesman of stand-up at this point, and rightfully believes that jokes should be an unfiltered art form, he's probably earned the right to tell sensitive Millennials to quietly drink their PBR. 7 and 9:30 p.m., $51–$150, 123 Vivian St., Durham, 919-680-2787, www.dpacnc.com. —Craig D.
