Biography – Jerry Seinfeld
Jerome Allen “Jerry” Seinfeld (born April 29, 1954) is an American comedian, actor, writer, and producer. He is best known for playing a semi-fictional version of himself in the sitcom Seinfeld (1989–1998), which he co-created and co-wrote with Larry David. For its final two seasons, they were also co-executive producers. Seinfeld also co-wrote and co-produced the 2007 animated film Bee Movie, in which he voiced the protagonist. In 2010, he premiered a reality series called The Marriage Ref. He directed Colin Quinn in the Broadway show Long Story Short at the Helen Hayes Theater, which ran until January 2011. He is also the creator and host of the web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. In his stand-up comedy career, Seinfeld is known for specializing in observational humor, often focusing on personal relationships and uncomfortable social obligations. In 2005, Comedy Central named him the 12th greatest stand-up comedian of all time.
Seinfeld was born in Brooklyn, New York. His father, Kálmán Seinfeld (1918–1985), was a sign maker of Austro-Hungarian Jewish descent. His mother, Betty (née Hesney; born 1915), is of Syrian Jewish descent; her parents were from Aleppo. Seinfeld grew up in Massapequa, New York and attended Massapequa High School, on Long Island. At the age of 16, he spent time volunteering in Kibbutz Sa’ar in Israel. He later attended State University of New York at Oswego; after his second year, he transferred to Queens College, City University of New York, graduating with a degree in communications and theater.
Seinfeld developed an interest in stand-up comedy after brief stints in college productions. In 1976, after graduation from Queens College, he tried out at an open-mic night at New York City’s Catch a Rising Star, which led to an appearance in a Rodney Dangerfield HBO special. In 1979, he had a small recurring role on the sitcom Benson, playing Frankie, a mail delivery boy who had comedy routines that no one wanted to hear. However, Seinfeld was abruptly fired from the show due to creative differences. Seinfeld has said that he was not actually told he had been fired until he turned up for the read-through session for an episode, and found that there was no script for him. In May 1981, Seinfeld made a successful appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, impressing Carson and the audience and leading to regular appearances on that show and others, including Late Night with David Letterman.
Seinfeld created The Seinfeld Chronicles with Larry David in 1988 for NBC. The show was later renamed Seinfeld to avoid confusion with the short-lived teen sitcom The Marshall Chronicles. By its fourth season, it had become the most popular and successful sitcom on American television. The final episode aired in 1998, and the show has been a popular syndicated re-run.
Along with Seinfeld himself, the show starred Saturday Night Live veteran Julia Louis-Dreyfus and experienced actors Michael Richards and Jason Alexander. Alexander played George, a caricature of Larry David. Seinfeld holds the distinction of being the only actor to appear in every episode of the show.
Seinfeld has said that his show was influenced by the 1950s sitcom The Abbott and Costello Show. In the “Seinfeld Season 6” DVD set, commenting on the episode “The Gymnast”, Seinfeld cited Jean Shepherd as an influence, saying, “He really formed my entire comedic sensibility—I learned how to do comedy from Jean Shepherd.”
From 2004–2007, the former Seinfeld cast and crew recorded audio commentaries for episodes of the DVD releases of the show. Seinfeld himself provided commentary for numerous episodes. (more on Wikipedia)
Years before Seinfeld was created, Seinfeld dated Carol Leifer, a fellow comedian and one of the inspirations for the Seinfeld character of Elaine. When he was in his late 30s, Seinfeld began a four-year romantic relationship with then-17-year-old high school student Shoshanna Lonstein.
In August 1998 Seinfeld met Jessica Sklar at the Reebok Sports Club and they began dating. Sklar, a public relations executive for Tommy Hilfiger, had just returned from a three-week honeymoon in Italy with Eric Nederlander, a theatrical producer and scion of a theater-owning family. Sklar divorced Nederlander—she explained in a 2007 interview that they had been engaged in couples therapy sessions prior to their marriage—and married Seinfeld on December 25, 1999. Comedian George Wallace was the best man at the wedding.
After the nuptials, Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld bought Billy Joel’s house in Amagansett, Long Island for US$32 million after news of the couple’s interest in the property became public in 2000.
As of January 2014, the Seinfelds have one daughter and two sons. Their daughter Sascha was born in 2000; their first son Julian Kal was born in 2003; and their second son Shepherd Kellen was born in 2005—all in New York City, U.S. Julian’s middle name Kal is the first name of Seinfeld’s father and also the first name of Seinfeld’s hero Superman, aka Kal-El. Among Seinfeld’s best friends are fellow comedians Wallace, Larry Miller, and Mario Joyner.
In 2000, Jessica Seinfeld launched Baby Buggy, a charity that provides clothing and gear for underprivileged women and children. She is also the author of the best-seller Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food, released by HarperCollins in October 2007.
Seinfeld is recorded as having made several political contributions, including George W. Bush and Al Gore’s presidential campaigns in 2000, and subsequently to four Democratic Party primary candidates in 2000 and 2004.
Seinfeld stated that he dabbled in Scientology during his 20s, although he says he was never in the organization. The association came to light in 1992.
A fan of the New York Mets, Seinfeld periodically calls Steve Somers’ show on WFAN-AM, a sports talk radio station, as “Jerry from Queens”. Seinfeld called four innings of a Mets game on SportsNet New York on June 23, 2010, reuniting with analyst Keith Hernandez, who appeared in the Seinfeld two part episode, “The Boyfriend”.
In December 2012, Seinfeld said that he had been practicing Transcendental Meditation (TM) for 40 years. He promoted the use of the technique in the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder with Bob Roth of the David Lynch Foundation in December 2012 on the Good Morning America television show, and also appeared at a 2009 David Lynch Foundation benefit for TM, at which former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr appeared.
In November 2014, Seinfeld said he suspected he was on the autism spectrum, citing difficulties with social engagement and reading body language. Almost two weeks later, he told Access Hollywood that “I don’t have autism. I’m not on the spectrum. I was just watching this play about it and … I related to it on some level.” (more on Wikipedia)
