Publisher's Summary

You'd know Fred Stoller if you saw him. He has appeared on practically every great sitcom you've ever seen - Everybody Loves Raymond, Friends, and Murphy Brown just to name a few. But he has never been a regular on a series, always the guest star. He longs to find a showbiz home. Instead, he is a television foster child, shuttling from show to show in the vain hope that one will finally agree to keep him. My Seinfeld Year tells the hysterical and bittersweet story of what happened when Stoller finally got a shot at the showbiz stability he'd always dreamed of - as a staff writer on one of the biggest television shows in history.

short, sweet and funny!

What a fantastic quick story!

I really enjoyed this because there didn't seem to be any padding or fat on it. Stoller gets straight to the point and his time at Seinfeld is the majority of the book. The stories that inspired some of his writing were wonderful and it was great to hear some of the inner workings of the comedy powerhouse.

I listened to this as an audiobook. I always enjoy audiobooks more when they're read by the author, and this was no exception. Stopping short of calling Stoller's read a 'performance', his tone and voice added comedy where there was none, and extra in the funny parts.

Closer to a long podcast than a book in my mind, this is a perfect 'reset' button on your reading/listening program. There aren't really any nuggets of wisdom to make you feel better or superior to others, but it's a really great time with Stoller who you begin to feel for as a friend.

Fantastic book - editors take note: I'd rather read 100 great pages in total than 100 great pages punctuated by 200 average/fillers. More of these please!
