Jerry Seinfeld donates to Sandy victims

New York - Jerry Seinfeld has added a show in Long Island to his new comedy tour and will donate all proceeds from it and two other performances to the victims of Superstorm Sandy.

The newly added show will take place on 19 December at the NYCB Theater in Westbury, New York. He and fellow comedian Colin Quinn, who is touring with the Seinfeld star, will donate all proceeds to groups helping storm victims.

Both will also donate all revenue from their shows in Brooklyn and Staten Island.

"I grew up on Long Island, and New York City is home," Seinfeld said in a statement. "This is a tough time for this area, and we're just glad to be able to help in the recovery."

Lady Gaga has also pledged that she will be donating $1m to the Red Cross to aid those affected by the superstorm that hit the East Coast of the US last week.
