Jerry Seinfeld’s Biography
Seinfeld’s popularity lies in a type of humor based on the observation of everyday events. Born in Brooklyn, raised in Massapequa, his interest in comedy began when he was eight and watching television he was fascinated to think that someone would be paid to make others laugh. Seinfeld always liked the performance more in front of a live audience than on television saying, “I knew I was going to be a comedian at a very young age, I remember once I made a friend laugh so loud he threw me a mouthful of cookies and milk on top. And I loved it. That was the beginning. ” Seinfeld started in nightclubs from the moment he graduated from Queens University. In principle, he dedicated himself to making free presentations, only to perfect his performance.
In those moments to survive he resorted to a variety of odd jobs such as illegally selling light bulbs by phone and selling fake jewelry on the street. In spite of everything, he never lost his dream: “All my life I’ve been trying to laugh … I’m obsessed with that movement, when you’re laughing, you’ve left your body, you’ve left the planet … it’s an incredible experience.” His work paid off when he became a regular guest on Late Night with David Letterman and The Tonight Show. His first special was Jerry Seinfeld’s Stand-up Confidential, aired on HBO during 1987 – 1988. In the spring of 1991 Jerry was the host of Spy TV: How To Be Famous for NBC and Aspen Comedy Festival for Showtime.
In 1989 he was given the opportunity to have his own comedy on a channel. With his partner Larry David (who was used as a model for the neurotic George Costanza) they presented the idea of a program about nothing, dedicating every half hour of the program to trivial events. The program was accepted and at first it was called Seinfeld Chronicles, but later it was simply called Seinfeld.
Seinfeld’s plot on television earned him two American Awards in 1992 and 1993 for Best Actor in a Comedy. It was also in 1992 when American Express appointed him as national spokesman for his acute sense of humor.
By 1993 this comedy had won the attention of both the public and the critics, the same year that the series received an Emmy for Best Comedy. The audience of the series remained at the top in all its years of broadcast until ending in its ninth season in 1998, when Jerry Seinfeld rejected an offer of NBC of about 90 million dollars, which was in the Guinness Book of Records as the Greatest rejected offer in history.
In 1999 he married Jessica Sklar, with whom he has had three children.
In 2002 he published a children’s book entitled ‘Halloween’. He continued with his tour of comic routines whose development was documented in ‘Comedian’. In 2007 he wrote the story of the movie Bee Movie. On March 29, Seinfeld escaped unharmed from a serious traffic accident that occurred in New York when the brakes of one of his old cars, a Fiat 500, failed.
In 2009-2010 he returned to TV on HBO, with his fellow creator Larry David for Curb Your Enthusiasm, which in its seventh season of ten episodes, brought together the protagonists of the famous sitcom, Seinfeld, who agreed to interpret themselves in several of their episodes.
In 2012 he starred in a small-format program for the internet that consisted of meeting with different comedians from the United States, going around in their old cars and having coffee. The program was titled Comedians in cars getting coffee and comedians such as Larry David, Ricky Gervais and Alec Baldwin have performed.
