As a seasoned actor, writer, musician, and stand-up comedian, Paul Reiser continues to add to his list of accomplishments. In addition to co-creating and starring in the critically acclaimed NBC series, “Mad About You,” which garnered him Emmy, Golden Globe, American Comedy Award and Screen Actors Guild nominations, his successes also include his most recent book, Familyhood, the long awaited follow- up to Babyhood and Couplehood, his first book, which sold over two million copies and reached the number one spot on The New York Times bestseller list .
Reiser’s most recent music project was the release of Unusual Suspects – an album of original songs he wrote with celebrated British singer/songwriter Julia Fordham, on which Reiser also arranged and played piano. Previously, Paul co-wrote (with Grammy-winning producer Don Was) “The Final Frontier” – the theme song from “Mad About You” which has the distinction of having been broadcast on Mars. (It was chosen by NASA mission directors as the “wake up call” for the Sojourner Rover there.)
Reiser film roles include “Diner,” “Bye, Bye Love,” “The Marrying Man,” “Aliens and “Beverly Hills Cop” (“I” and “II”) and "The Thing About My Folks" – which he wrote and starred in with the Academy Award winning actors Peter Falk and Olympia Dukakis.
Mr. Reiser and his family live in Los Angeles.
