Jerry Seinfeld isn’t sure how to pronounce “Worcester,” so he’s going straight to the source to find out.
The comedian and former star of the eponymous hit television show tweeted about his upcoming performances at the Hanover Theater in Worcester on Saturday, claiming that his reason for visiting the Massachusetts town is to learn how to properly say and spell its name.
I cannot understand the spelling and pronunciation of Worcester, Mass.
So I’m coming in for 2 shows Saturday night to figure it out.

“I cannot understand the spelling and pronunciation of Worcester, Mass,” Seinfeld wrote. “So I’m coming in for 2 shows Saturday night to figure it out.”
People were quick to offer up their version of the correct pronunciation, but it looks like not everyone agrees:
think rooster ? but with a “w”.

It’s not wooster either, it’s more like calling someone a wuss, then the “sta”. So it’s wuss-sta. (BTW They’re not wusses)

One person provided this advice, just in case Seinfeld can’t master the word by the end of his stint in Worcester:
Jerry, it’s like those voiceovers at the end of a pharmaceutical commercial. If you say it fast enough, it doesn’t sound bad.
