Jerry Seinfeld in Telenor Arena

This evening I went to watch Jerry Seinfeld with Sunil at the Telenor Arena.  The Telenor Arena is close to work so I just walked to the stadium, took me about 50 minutes.  It's also home to Stabekk football club.

Cashed up Norwegians waiting to get into the stadium.  This was about 6pm.   Tickets start at 730 nok each (128 Australian) and go up to over 1000 nok (175 Australian).  We got tickets for 385 nok each, bought them from a guy who couldn't go.

The ticket said the show was supposed to start at 6:30pm.  Turns out that was the entrance time.  They didn't stop letting people in until 8:30pm that was the actual start time.  The act started off with George Wallace which probably took an hour and Jerry's act was an hour.  So it finished at 10:30pm.  In between 6:30pm and 8:30pm was a lot of people watching, counting the number of pølse, and trivial small talk like how much a person holding the row signs make (If you really want to know, it's 220 nok per hour for light labour and 350 nok for hard labour).  Another trivial fact, norwegians consume 100 kilos of pølse per person each year and in fact, Norway is the biggest sausage eating country per capita in the world.

7pm.. waiting

8:18pm.. more waiting

9:23pm.  There's Mr Seinfeld on stage.  Taken with the extremely non high quality phone camera.

When I was younger with black hair and no face fuzz I used to watch Seinfeld on TV quite often to free myself from the tedious burden of studying.  I would've never imagined myself seeing him live on stage at any point in my life.  I suppose that's a good thing.  He's still quite funny and George Wallace was funny too.

First world problem complaint.  I didn't have dinner until close to midnight.  And since I had no frozen pizza I had to make dinner from scratch which wasn't too bad but it would've been nice to come back and not cook after another 50 minute walk.
