You don’t see much of frequent Las Vegas entertainer Jerry Seinfeld on his own new NBC show, “The Marriage Ref,” which he lets someone else host.
But the 55-year-old comedian and former red-hot sitcom star will be on view for a full-hour this Thursday on “Live! with Regis and Kelly.”
The syndicated weekday talk show says Seinfeld is making his first appearance as a guest co-host, alongside Kelly Ripa.
Scheduled guests include Donald Trump, also a business owner and lover of Las Vegas.
The “Live! With Regis & Kelly” TV show, starring Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa, has scheduled a four-show visit Nov. 22-23 at the Encore Theatre at Wynn Las Vegas.
Look for Kelly to track down the wedding chapel where she and Mark Consuelo, then co-stars on “All My Children,” got hitched here on May 1, 1996. Like a lot of newlyweds who don’t remember where they got married in Vegas, she refers to it as the “Chapel of Cheese.”
They will tape their show at 11 a.m. Nov. 22, a Sunday, and again at 1:30 p.m. The next day, the tapings are again at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Ticket information is at https://register.go.com/regisandkelly/tickets/index.
