After an AI-generated version of his hit television show went from haunting to downright awful in no time flat, some better news from IRL Jerry Seinfeld finds him visiting Halifax this August for a headlining standup set.

Alberta's Great Outdoors Comedy Festival has announced that Seinfeld will top the bill on the opening night of its inaugural Halifax event, set to take place at the city's Garrison Grounds from August 11 to 13.

Previously held in Edmonton and Calgary, the Great Outdoors Comedy Festival's August event marks the fest's East Coast debut.

Tickets for Seinfeld's performance go on sale Friday (March 3), ranging from $69 to $89 for general admission, and up to $309 for VIP stubs.

Further ticketing and festival details can be found via the Great Outdoors Comedy Festival's official website.

Further lineup announcements for all three Great Outdoors Comedy Festival events are still to come. The festival's Calgary edition features Jonathan Van Ness, American drag queen Monet X Change, Canadian counterparts Priyanka and Karla Marx, and DJ Molly Fi, while Edmonton's event features Andrew Schulz, Annie Lederman and DJ Kav.
