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!

Short but not sweet, just enjoyable

I'm familiar with the actor and his typecast character as the whiny schmuck, so I was okay and enjoyed listening to the author read his material. When a comedian writes a book or in this case a short thingy, said comedian should narrate it. However this rule does not work for any other writer.
I also remember Fred's stand up act, and could recollect it when he mentioned it in this short reading.
So please listen to the sample before buying if you have never encountered or can recall the comedic actor/writer Fred Stoller. If you don't know him from Adam or Adam's 3rd cousin, you might want to pass.
I enjoyed this book. I liked Seinfeld when it was on, and found the behind the scenes descriptions interesting. I laughed out loud a few times.

Great book!

What made the experience of listening to My Seinfeld Year the most enjoyable?

We really loved Fred's tale of his year at Seinfeld in his own voice!

What does Fred Stoller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think Fred's delivery is an integral part of his story!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, in fact, I listened to it twice. After I listened the first time, I played it again for the whole family on a trip!

Any additional comments?

I was really happy that Fred didn't use profanity, so I was comfortable with playing the book for the whole family.

Fascinating insight in TV world

I had to Google the authors name but as soon as I saw his photo I recognised him instantly and really enjoyed this short book.

It offered a fascinating insight into the world of acting, writing and TV.

As a fan of the show Seinfeld, I especially enjoyed hearing about the writing process and behind the scenes detail.

Not so nebbish

An entertaining listen. Worth a callback.. would like to have heard more (or see a show inspired by his experiences and then listen to the book about the making of that!)
