Jerry Seinfeld

The person I chose to do my independent reading project on Jerry Seinfeld. The
reason I did Jerry was I love his show, and I think he is one of the best
comedians today and probably ever. Early life It all started on a warm spring
day in Brooklyn, New York and I bet no one at that hospital ever thought that
little baby Jerry would once become the world’s best comedian. Jerry was born
on April 24 1954. Jerry was raised in an average home where the dad brought home
the money and mom stayed home to keep the neat and tidy (Your regular
stereotypical family). But the odd thing was both of his parents were adopted
and were raised very poorly. Jerry’s father (Kalman) had his own business of
sign panting and he did all the painting by himself. High school and college
years Jerry went to Massapequa high school. Jerry was often known there for his
quick remarks during class and was given the title of class clown in his 2nd
year at Massapequa. Between his years in Massapequa and in Queens College he had
realized that he had a way of making peoples laugh and he boldly chose it as his
career. Jerry graduated in 1976 and had already created a name for him self in
the comedy profession. From 1977 to 1981 Jerry was working the clubs and always
loved to return to his roots and work at the "Improve" where he was known as
a usual there. In 1988 Jerry was at a club when a spokes person from NBC came to
talk to Jerry He asked Jerry if he was willing to talk to the NBC executive for
a show proposal. He immediately called his old friend Larry David and asked him
to help him make up a show for NBC and they did. At first the "Seinfeld

Chronicle" was offered a 4 show Guarantee (one of the lowest guarantees ever
given for a sitcom). Show later changed its name to "Seinfeld" and was one
of the best shows on TV Today Jerry likes collecting exotic cars and he has 25
classic Porsches I hope you enjoyed my project on Jerry Seinfeld.
