It was one of those nights to remember at Bay Street Theater.

On the evening of May 27, audiences had packed the Sag Harbor theater for a sold-out show as part of the Comedy Club series at Bay Street and were anticipating a great performance by Colin Quinn.

Comedian Tim Gage opened the show and then announced that a surprise guest would soon take the stage.

Though it was a night of stand-up, it was a good thing the audience was sitting down because Jerry Seinfeld came out next. After doing his set, Seinfeld turned the mic over to the comedian of the night, Colin Quinn, who went on to provide a evening filled with fun and laughter.

“You never know who you will see at Bay Street Theater,” said Scott Schwartz, Bay Street’s artistic director.

Fans of stand up, don’t fret. There’s more comedy action coming this summer at Bay Street. Colin Jost from Saturday Night Live will continue the Comedy Club series on Saturday, July 1 at 8 p.m.

Also, just announced is a night of comedy and music with Tovah Feldshuh in her act “Aging is Optional,” on Saturday, August 5 at 8 p.m. Audiences will know her from “The Walking Dead” and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” Broadway includes “Golda’s Balcony,” the longest-running one-woman show in Broadway history and the film “Kissing Jessica Stein.” Tickets go on sale soon.
