Jerry Seinfeld was born on April 29, 1954 in Brooklyn, New York. He grew up in Massapequa, New York. He attended State University of New York at Oswego for two years. After his second year he transferred to Queens College where he earned a degree in communications and theater. He developed a passion for stand-up comedy while at Queens College and would periodically appear at open-mic nights. After college Jerry spent nearly 15 years grinding out a career as a stand-up comedian before hitting the television jackpot. He was a successful touring comic when in May 1981 he had an extremely successful appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. This appearance led to many more appearances on The Tonight Show and other late night programs like Late Night with David Letterman.
Somewhat infamously, Jerry dated Shoshanna Lonstein for four years, starting when she was 17 and still in high school. He was 38. In 1998 Jerry met Jessica Sklar at a sports club a few months before she was set to marry a theater producer named Eric Nederlander. Three weeks after returning from her honeymoon, Sklar moved in with Jerry and broke up with her husband. The husband filed for divorce just four months after the wedding. Jerry and Jessica married a year later and have been together ever since. They have three children together.
Jerry Seinfeld Car Collection
Jerry is one of the largest private collectors of Porshes in the world. He owns a total of around 150 vehicles, of which roughly 45 are Porsches. For many years while living in Los Angeles to film Seinfeld, he kept his collection in a hangar at the Santa Monica airport. In 2002 he spent $1.4 million to acquire a property on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. He proceeded to spend another $500 thousand constructing a garage that can house dozens of cars.
Jerry Seinfeld Real Estate
East Hampton: In 2000, Jerry and Jessica paid a total of $32 million over three transactions to put together a 12-acre oceanfront estate in East Hampton, New York. One of the sellers was Billy Joel. They reportedly then spent several million dollars on renovations that included building a large new house on the property and adding a private baseball diamond in the back of the property (Jerry is a massive Mets fan). The Hamptons property has a 22-car garage.

Whilst Seinfeld was at college, he was involved in various productions, and this was where his inspiration to become a stand-up comedian came from. He tried out at various open mic nights around New York City and got a role in the sitcom Benson in 1980; which he was later fired from. In 1981, Seinfeld appeared on The Tonight Show, and people quickly began to become aware of who he was. In 1988, he created The Seinfeld Chronicles with Larry David, which was hugely successful, and is where most people know Seinfeld from. Since then, Jerry has appeared in a lot of different productions and had an incredibly successful career in stand-up comedy. His ongoing 2012 web series; ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’, became a hit on Crackle and Netflix, and has recently won a copyright dispute battle where Plaintiff Christian Charles sued Seinfeld and others in 2018.
