My Seinfeld Year by Fred Stoller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Who would have guessed that a year of working for Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld would be such an alienating experience? We get to see the “real” Larry and Jerry – they are not as fun as I thought they would be. Comedy is a serious business – especially comedy that made both men multimillionaires.
A short book, it seems more like a spec chapter for a future book and not a stand-alone-piece. It left me wanting more – not more Seinfeld, more Fred. Even though I enjoyed the behind the scenes Seinfeld info, I actually wanted to know more about Fred. What a quirky and eccentric character! The sad little character he portrays is both funny and tragic. His adventures in becoming a comedian/actor deserve a longer treatment. Mom deserves a whole section – and a psychiatric evaluation.
Please Fred, get going on your autobiography. I will be the first one to pre-order it on Amazon.
