New Yorkers will soon be able to see Jerry Seinfeld on a regular basis at the Beacon Theatre.

The veteran stand-up, former star of Seinfeld, and current star of web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, announced on Tuesday that he has signed up for a residency at the historic Manhattan theater that will feature the Big Apple native performing once a month in 2016. The venue is owned by the Madison Square Garden Company, which has Billy Joel playing his hits at the Madison Square Garden in a similar one-gig-a-month arrangement.

“My favorite theater in New York to perform in has always been The Beacon. Comedians live for certain houses that just feel ‘alive’ for some reason,” said Seinfeld in a statement. “The Beacon is that place for me and I am so excited to make it my new home.”
