About the Author

Ted L. Nancy is a pseudonym used by Barry Marder. Marder is a comedian, former writer on "Seinfeld" and the co-writer of Dreamworks' animated hit "Bee Movie."   He has written for Bill Maher, Jay Leno, & David Letterman.  He also wrote with George Carlin.

More About the Author

Ted L. Nancy is a pseudonym used by Barry Marder. Finally the long national nightmare is over. Jerry Seinfeld unmasked the true author of the "Letters From A Nut" books on Larry King Live and The Today Show with Matt Lauer. (To View: Tedlnancy.com)

Mr. Nancy writes earnest letters to Icelandic malls, German theme parks, Norms Barbershop, shoe museums, waffle cone businesses, and an Indian Casino asking to sell ham sandwiches in their restroom. And publishes them along with their equally sincere but hilarious responses. He does this so that others may enjoy it. His letters include: Telling Ralphs Supermarket he bought a haunted sponge from them. Asking an Amsterdam hotel if he can check in with 300 hamsters for his production of Hamsterdam. And warning the telephone company installer about his Electronic Belching Machine on his patio.

His books on Amazon.com are under Ted. L. Nancy or Jerry Seinfeld. No one else. He has no affiliation with any other books or DVD's except what is on this Author's Page. He is proud that his books are suitable for all ages. Many teachers use them in their classrooms as learning tools for students. Mr. Nancy has moved to Glendale, California to be near the Turkish paranormal community. (of which he has attended a meeting) He does not like olives! Visit his website at tedlnancy.com

Barry Marder is a comedian, former writer on "Seinfeld" and the co-writer of Dreamworks' animated hit "Bee Movie." He was a writer for Bill Maher, Jay Leno, & David Letterman. He has performed at most major theaters in the United States as opening act for Jerry Seinfeld. He has also written with George Carlin.

"All New Letters" sees Ted returning to the classic form that made his name in the first place. After Ted (AKA Barry Marder as seen on Larry King) stretched out a bit on "Hello Junk Mail," and, most likely "Stories from a Moron," (as Ed Broth...with...yep..."foreword by Jerry Seinfeld"), we get a new feast of tasty Ted treats in the old school style. It's like the Stones: Ted might move in a new direction for awhile, but eventually he always returns to the original direction. And for those people criticizing Ted for not being the first (Laszlo Letters, etc. came before) -- the Stones didn't invent the blues either -- but, just like Ted, they are top performers in their chosen form. If your heart can handle uncontrolled laughter, pick up this book and read about "Hamsterdam," the retelling of the history of Amsterdam using Hamsters. Beyond highly recommended.

If you've stumbled across the previous volumes of these sidesplittingly funny letters, this book needs no recommendation from me. If you haven't, grab this one quick -- you're in for a treat! Ted's gimmick is an excellent one. He writes the most ridiculous po-faced letters imaginable -- complaints, inquiries, every imaginable kind of outlandish, irritating customer whine -- and sends them off to unsuspecting businesses. The fun lies in both his zany original letters, and the sturdy, if clueless, attempts by flummoxed business owners or service reps to respond in a civil, intelligible manner to these idiotic missives. No matter how grim your day, five minutes browsing through this book is guaranteed to elevate your mood and have you chortling away. More, please, Mr. Nancy! (And to his credited muse, Phyllis Murphy -- see he keeps them letters comin', Mama!)

Dear Mr. Nancy:

I've read all your books (Letters from a Nut, More Letters from a Nut and this book, All New Letters from a Nut) and all those books are truly great reading. I enjoyed every page. But after reading them, I realized we have something in common and I NEED YOUR HELP.

What we have in common is a collection of historic moist towelettes. You had one, I believe, dating back to the Civil War. That is amazing and I'm sure it's a significant artifact. But I have one that I think might be a tad more rare; a moist towelette from Ancient Sumeria. I have researched this exhaustively on the Internet and I can confirm it's from Sumeria because the outer envelope is in cuneiform. I'm having trouble dating the item; I don't think it's as early as Lugalanemundu of Adab -2525-2500 BC but may be from the later Ur-Nammu 2113-2095 BC because there is a trademark on the back, and Ur-Nammu was known for creating a code of laws, and there is a popular theory that trademark law was codified by as early as the ancient Sumerians. In fact, I'm sure they slapped a patent on cuneiform because the Egyptians probably developed papyrus in order to avoid paying royalties. This patent probably also spurred the Egyptian invention of toilet paper, another achievement. I'm not able to find out if they had papyrus moist towelettes. Perhaps you can answer that?

I've written to various museums of archaeology, including University of Pennsylvania, the Smithsonian and Ripley's Believe it Or Not in Bangontarget, Florida. Not one museum has answered my inquiries. For one thing, I'm anxious to know if I made a mistake in opening it, because the towelette WAS STILL MOIST even after thousands of years (how cool is that!

I laughed so hard, I had to stop several times to keep my kishkes from coming up. As I dried my tears flowing freely from my ducts, I took a break after several letters to compose myself. This guy is a brilliant comedy writer!! I don't know what is funnier...The actual rediculous requests made by Ted L. Nancy or the absolutely corporate mind set that feel compelled to answer him! I guess you need both! If you have never read these letters then you are missing one of the best exposes of corporate PR people who will go to any length to keep the customer happy.

I guess, even they have their limits...LOL!!

I just finished reading "All New Letter From A Nut" and not only could I not put it down, I cannot stop laughing out loud (much to the chagrin of students at my local Starbucks cramming for exams.)
Each letter is screaming out loud hilarious. Ted L. Nancy has outdone himself from the last volume of wacky, always clever letters. This is a great, fun read from start to finish. Bravo, Bravo, Bravo, Mr. Nancy, whoever and wherever you are.

Another great book from "Ted L. Nancy" I read it in one day and laughed until it hurt.I own all his books and this one is filled with more nutty letters and nuttier replies from various outlets.Great if you are a fan of his books or just looking for a laugh.
