    1 thought on “My Seinfeld Year”

    1. I've been on an autobiography kick as of late. That might be why I hated this book as much as I did. After reading about the lives of black panthers and Gandhi, this guy was just terrible. This man lives the dreams of many: he pays his rent with acting gigs. However, he is never satisfied. He wants to feel the sensation of being a returning cast member (*sigh*), but hes just a guest actor. He lands a gig as a writer for Seinfeld but (*SIGH*) its a writing gig and not an acting gig. Stoller then [...]

    2. It's an easy read and if you've got any interest in Seinfeld perhaps pick this upYou could easily read this in one sitting. You could called Stroller a sad-sack and someone who seems ungrateful for his life in the TV industry. However, it appears he may of learnt this behaviour because of his mother who seems to do nothing but insult him even as an adult. You can feel a slight pity towards him but then I wonder if this short book isn't a cry out or even a 'pity party' so you'll do exactly that f [...]

    3. A DVD extra that could have been. Fred Stoller spent a year on the writing staff for the greatest comedy of all time, Seinfeld. This Kindle single explores what it was like to be part of the staff and gives an "outsiders'" look at the process that created stories and episodes for Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer.Just long enough to hold your interest, Stoller is candid, honest and self deprecating. It also made me want to dust off my DVD box set, find Stoller's written episode and on-screen appe [...]

    4. I like behind the scenes memoirs that take me into the process of making films or TV shows, especially beloved ones. I was interested in listening to the audio version of Fred Stoller's My Seinfeld Years and get a chuckle or two at his recollection of working as a writer and one time guest star on an iconic TV show and with one of my favorite humorists of all time, Larry David. Though these short memoirs do provide some laughs and some mildly interesting tidbits about Stoller's Seinfeld years an [...]

    5. I'm not sure how this even became published. I was expecting some behind the scenes stories about Seinfeld (one of my favorite shows), and instead the entire book seemed like a collection of random and exhausting complaints. I have no idea what the point of this "book" is. Would not recommend.

    6. "My Seinfeld Year" is an inside look at one writer's ill-fated season as a Seinfeld staff writer. Fred Stoller, the sad-sack actor and comedian who by chance fell into the gig, seems a likable enough schmo, and it's fascinating to learn how Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld pieced the classic show together (apparently, with little help from Stoller).But there's a "so ?" quality to the narrative as Fred loses his job, seemingly without learning a thing. He's still out there as a character actor, plu [...]

    7. I thought I paid .99 for this Kindle Single but I actually forked over 1.99. Let me save you the 2 bucks by summarizingFred was hired as a writer on Seinfeld. Larry David was horribly rude to Fred and when the season ended, Fred wasn't asked back. Fred decides he always liked acting better anyway. The end.

    8. An interesting look behind the scenes of the show. The book read like an interesting friend was telling you about his experiences. Well done.

    9. This is nothing but a blatant cash-in on the Seinfeld name. He offers little, if any, behind-the-scenes glances into the production of Seinfeld. Stay away.

    10. 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 rather than a stand-alone-piece. It left me wanting more - not more Seinfeld, more Fred. Even though I enjoyed the behind the scenes Sei [...]

    11. a *3.5* a quick funny read by character actor and writer Fred Stoller, as an actor he has done small roles in Dumb and Dumber, Happily Divorced, Seinfeld, Murphy Brown and also some voice acting for cartoons. he usually plays the jerk type character. for one year he was hired to be a writer for Seinfeld. a pretty good accomplishment as a writer. he spent a good part of this quick read book talking about what it is like to deal with Larry David and trying to pitch plot ideas for the show. this bo [...]

    12. I couldn’t put this book down. I never particularly cared for Fred Stoller and his mopey brand of comedy. I also associate him with guest spots in dreadful, dreadful sitcoms. But I do like Seinfeld and wanted to read this Kindle Single because it was about Seinfeld. It’s short and to the point and extremely authentic. It’s funny but never in a shticky way. And, yes, it’s self-deprecating but in a real way—more like in a literary short story than some sort of Rodney Dangerfield bit. Eas [...]

    13. This is a Kindle short, so other reviews that complain about the length are perplexing to me. I enjoyed Stoller's take on both his character acting and his year as a writer on the hit television comedy Seinfeld. His gentle take on his life, and his humble acceptance of his own sad sack personality are both sweet and readable. You might remember Fred as the whiny look-alike cousin on Everybody Loves Raymond Stoller's a good writer and I recommend his book for a quick, pleasant read

    14. Fred Stoller is a writer/actor who has kicked around the entertainment world almost unnoticed. This short story mainly deals with his year as a writer for the Seinfeld show. There are some laughs, but Fred walks around with a rain cloud over his head. I would enjoy attending a party he was at, but I don't want to wake up beside him.

    15. A quick and fun read. An interesting look at some of the inner workings of one of my favorite shows.

    16. A very light, very short Kindle Single by Fred Stoller, a character actor, comedian and writer recounting his year working on the writing staff of the legendary sitcom Seinfeld. Enjoyable enough but doesn’t contain any particularly juicy revelations about its cast or the way it was produced. Stoller’s main point seems to be how tough it is to make it in Hollywood.He is not a big time name, but my guess is that most folks would recognize Fred Stoller as he has appeared in a number of televisi [...]

    17. It seems that you either like this work, or you don't. Personally, Fred Stoller's "My Seinfeld Years" is an enjoyable excursion into another's ups and downs in the entertainment field. Told with just a touch of tongue-in-cheek, this is a personal foray into some of Stoller's moments as he has endeavored to "break into the business" over the years. He isn't afraid to reveal his own insecurities, his own frustrations, or to make fun of himself in any situation. All of that makes this an enjoyable [...]

    18. I remember seeing Fred Stoller doing stand-up comedy on TV as a kid, and here and there on TV shows, but didn't know he wrote on Seinfeld until I heard him on podcasts promoting this book. It is a short and insightful look on the world of TV sit-coms from the point of view of someone who has lived in that world, but on the fringes of it, for a long time. I enjoyed what stories were told here, and was glad to see that the only episode that he wrote that actually got filmed was one that I remember [...]

    19. This short behind-the-scenes look at the writing team of Seinfeld is mildly interesting but it doesn't truly qualify as an inside-look. Unfortunately, Stoller isn't a great storyteller and he seems to see himself as a victim who didn't know how to get stuff done. At no point did he try to really take charge or, heaven forbid, ask someone for advice.Because he didn't make much effort to 'get' what it was to be a staff writer means I, the reader, didn't get an actual inside look. Stoller's almost [...]

    20. Fred Stoller strikes me as one of those actor you don't know by name. You see his face, or hear his voice, though, and you snap your fingers and say, "Yeah, that guy." I remember him mainly through "Everybody Loves Raymond" as the cousin who gets Robert sucked into that happy cult, and as the voice of the wrench on "Handy Manny" (the price of having a pre-schooler). I hadn't realized he worked on one of my favorite shows, "Seinfeld", as a writer. Not only that, he wrote one of the more memorable [...]

    21. I wasn't a hard core Seinfeld fan - but I liked the show enough that when this came up for free on my kindle, I thought why not?I feel sort of sorry for Fred Stoller. He has had moderate success in Hollywood as a bit part actor - and as a comedian and writer for Seinfeld. However, I hate self deprecating comedy. Like comedians that make fun of themselves in a mean way. I just think it's sort of sad. It always makes me think of Chris Farley making jokes about his weight, it makes me sad and wonde [...]

    22. I highly recommend this book if you know who Fred Stoller is. If you know who he is then you should read this book by hearing his very distinctive voice speaking every line in your head. If you do so, then you will enjoy this little story about how one man basically rejects, in true neurotic Woody Allen-fashion, a big opportunity for what makes him truly happy. Mr. Stoller is offered comedy writer gold as a position as a staff writer for Seinfeld; however, what he longs for is plum acting roles, [...]

    23. This was a very quick read and I loved every page of it. If you watched even a moderate amount of television in the 90s you'll recognize Fred Stoller. He found himself as the hapless schlub on seemingly every sitcom that passed through the airwaves. My favorite Stoller moment was when Mental was punching him in the face through a telephone booth in Dumb & Dumber. Yeah, he's that guy! Anyway, Stoller has a unique perspective when it comes to the world of show business. He's had his successes [...]

    24. As a huge fan of the classic tv series, Seinfeld, I knew I had to read this book. Additionally, it was a little $2 bargain I found with my Kindle Fire as a Kindle Single. My Seinfeld Year is a quick short read that offers a view from a former writer who spent one season as a writer on the series. Fred Stoller offers a unique perspective as a former comic and struggling actor who by chance gets asked to write for the series. His short book offers a view of how a television series is written and t [...]

    25. I always like reading about people whose lives/careers are really different from my own. I know nothing about the life of a working actor, so I thought Fred Stoller's story was kind of an interesting one. Especially because he ended up working on Seinfeld for a season. It was interesting to see what that was like, and I'm impressed that (view spoiler)[ he wrote basically created Kenny Bania! Bania first appears in the episode Stoller wrote, called The Soup, and what happens to Jerry with the "me [...]

    27. Fred Stoller is every bit the sad sack that he appears to be in his many character roles on situation comedies. This book mostly covers his time as a script writer on the "Seinfeld" show, when he was torn between being a writer and an actor. It's an interesting, mildly humorous look into the making of one of the very best-ever TV comedies, but it's also about Stoller's struggles to make some kind of a success in Hollywood. Readers looking for a lot of celebrity gossip and bashing of actors will [...]

    28. Was there ever a more dull comic? Probably, either way this a short tale of Fred Stoller's gradual, and less than meteoric rise in the comedy scene. Without being to disrespectful to his peers he manages to display that the world of sitcom writing and guest roles are rough places with abject humiliation and the chance of failure hanging like a noose over everyone's heads, except execs naturally. I think it's pretty clear that Stoller's intention here is not to tear down the establishment, rather [...]
