Stand-up comedian, comic television actor, advertising pitchman, and author, Jerry Seinfeld makes a seamless transition from one role to the next. He earned the 1992 and 1993 American Comedy Award for Best Actor in a comedy series and an Emmy award for outstanding comedy series for the hit television comedy that bears his name. The show completed its prime-time run with a media blitz in 1998, but appears regularly in syndication. Based very closely on Seinfeld's real-life circumstances and experiences, Seinfeld's show is, according to the actor himself, "about nothing." In some respects, however, it is autobiographical: what happens to a comedian living in New York City as he passes time with friends between shows. He is single, thin and neat, and loves baseball, fast cars, Superman, and cereal. Seinfeld's books, Jerry Seinfeld: Stand-Up Confidential (1987) and Sein Language (1993), follow the same themes. Seinfeld was born in Brooklyn, New York on April 29, 1955. He has a degree in theater communications from Queens (N.Y.) College. Seinfeld is single and still calls New York home.
