The incomparable JerrySeinfeld has been hailed for his uncanny ability to joke about the little things in life that relate to audiences everywhere.
Seinfeld is known for specializing in observational humor, often focusing on personal relationships and uncomfortable social obligations. In 2005, Comedy Central ranked Jerry Seinfeld 12th out of 100 as the greatest comedians of all time in its five-part special ‘The 100 Greatest Standups of All Time.’
The entertainment icon’s comedy career took off after his first appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1981. Eight years later, he teamed up with fellow comedian Larry David to create what was to become the most successful comedy series in the history of television: Seinfeld. The show ran on NBC for nine seasons, winning numerous Emmy, Golden Globe and People’s Choice awards, and was named the greatest television show of all time in 2009 by TV Guide, and in 2012 was identified as the best sitcom ever in a 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll. E! named it the “number 1 reason the ’90s ruled.” In 2013, the Writers Guild of America named Seinfeld the No. 2 Best Written TV Series of All Time (second to The Sopranos). As of June 2014, the series has earned $4 billion in worldwide revenue, making it the second most lucrative show in television history.
Seinfeld’s project, ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ originated as a web-only series that is now available on Netflix! Episodes follow a format of Mr. Seinfeld introducing a vintage car, picking up the guest comedian, and taking them out to have coffee or to a restaurant. Guests have included Jay Leno, Alec Baldwin, Sarah Silverman, David Letterman, Tina Fey, and many others.
His other recent project, ‘Jerry Before Seinfeld,’ in which Jerry takes you back to before you called him a king, or a legend, or ‘the-guy-from-that-thing,’ debuted on Netflix in 2017.
