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 worlds 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.
Jerrys 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.
