Jerry Seinfeld Sold Light Bulbs

Jerry Seinfeld Sold Light Bulbs, Actually, for Jerry Seinfeld it’s about comedy. While his stints as a telephone light-bulb salesman and a jewelry street vendor might have been, let’s say intriguing, comedy has been the focus of this New Yorker’s life since he was a kid.

Jerry grew up in New York, worked the comedy club circuit and starred in his own HBO special, “Jerry Seinfeld’s Stand-up Confidential,” before Seinfeld began its run in 1990. While the TV show is what he’s best known for, Jerry’s also won acclaim as a writer. Based on his comic observations, his book SeinLanguage was published by Bantam Books in 1993, ranking as that year’s third best-selling non-fiction hardcover and remaining on The New York Times Best-Seller List for 33 weeks. He’s racked up over 50 appearances on The Tonight Show and The Late Show with David Letterman, and is the commercial pitchman for American Express.

Seinfeld (the TV series, not the guy, although where the two divide is rather mysterious…) is now part of American pop culture. Jerry continues to do stand up, and his tours have been chronicled by documentarians resulting in the film “Comedian.” Seinfeld married Jessica Sklar in 1999. The couple — who live in New York (where else?) — have a daughter, born in 2000.

Jerome Allen “Jerry” Seinfeld (born April 29, 1954) is an American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and television and film producer, best known for playing a semi-fictional version of himself in the sitcom Seinfeld (1989-1998), which he co-created and co-wrote with Larry David, and, in the show’s final two seasons, co-executive-produced.

In his first major foray back into the media since the finale of Seinfeld, he co-wrote and co-produced the film Bee Movie, also taking on the lead role of Barry B. Benson. In February 2010, Seinfeld premiered a reality TV series called The Marriage Ref on NBC. Seinfeld directed Colin Quinn in the Broadway show Long Story Short at the Helen Hayes Theater in New York which ran until January 8, 2011.

Seinfeld is known for specializing in observational humor, often focusing on personal relationships and uncomfortable social obligations. Comedy Central ranked Jerry Seinfeld as one of the twelve greatest stand-up comedians of all time in its four-part special The 100 Greatest Standups Of All Time.
