From standup to Stranger Things, Mad About You to The Kominsky Method, Paul Reiser is one of Hollywood’s most prolific talents — and he shows no signs of slowing down. See him live on January 20 at 8:00pm.
A comedian, actor, television writer, author and musician, Reiser is among the “Top 100 Comedians of All Time” named by Comedy Central and, most recently, received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role in Netflix's The Kominsky Method. He also recently revived one of his most iconic roles in the highly-anticipated return of Mad About You, the long-running hit 90s comedy he co-created and starred in with Helen Hunt. The Emmy, Peabody and Golden Globe-winning comedy ended in May 1999 and premiered 20 years later as a limited series on Spectrum Originals.
Throughout his career, Reiser has worked with both independent and mainstream filmmakers. Reiser earned acclaim for his supporting roles in the Academy Award-winning film Whiplash, John McDonagh’s War on Everyone and frequent collaborator Jeff Baena’s The Little Hours and Horse Girl, which premiered at Sundance 2020 and is the fourth film the pair has worked on together. The veteran actor has garnered praise for notable performances in films such as Diner, Bye Bye Love, Aliens, One Night At McCool’s, Beverly Hills Cop I/II and The Thing About My Folks, which Reiser wrote for his co-star Peter Falk. Recently, Reiser starred alongside Kevin Hart in the touching comedy Fatherhood, out now on Netflix.
Reiser is a fixture behind the camera as well. He co-created and co-produced There’s Johnny!, a seven-episode series which originally streamed on Hulu and now streams on Peacock. The show, co-created with filmmaker David Steven Simon and co-produced with David Gordon Green in conjunction with The Carson Company, premiered to critical praise.
Reiser’s first book, Couplehood, sold over two million copies and reached the No. 1 spot on The New York Times bestsellers list. His subsequent books, Babyhood and Familyhood, were best sellers as well. Reiser regularly performs standup at sold-out venues. paulreiser.com
