Which is an example of the quintessential Stoller. He's the guy you've seen before a thousand times but can never quite put your finger on where you saw or heard of him. My Seinfeld Year is a low key and somewhat self-effacing inside peek into the world of screenplay writers. And it's worth it because the process is far, far different than what most people would believe. Writers aren't just picked up and start first-drafting story mechanics. Instead, there is a pool of writers who all have to pitch their scripts and frameworks for the next show. The process must be incredibly painful to go through as a writer and this method is described quite nicely in MSY. It's hard enough as a writer to pitch your manuscript and land a literary agent, a near-impossible task in and of itself. But to repeat this week after week with high rejection rates is incredible.
Thanks Fred for this inside look into that world. I enjoyed it a lot.
This book is a fast read and covers Fred's career as a writer and actor on Seinfeld as well as a little bit of his early life and post-Seinfeld years.
I'm very much looking forward to the next book (Get busy and write the next book Fred!) which will, hopefully, talk about his time working on Raymond, the actors and writers and producers there, and also more details about Murphy Brown and also what he's doing now.
I'd like to read more about the personalities we all "think" we know, such as Ray Romano and Patricia Heaton and the other cast members. Let's hear some more about your experiences on Star Search too that you mentioned briefly in this book. I have to say that while I do remember seeing Brad Garret on Star Search and remember watching when the episodes he was on that led to the season finale win by Brad...I have no memory of Fred Stoller being on there. I think that probably reinforces Fred's self-image though so maybe that's not a bad thing! It would be fun to read more about those experiences though.
Good book Fred! This is exactly the type of thing that Kindle excels at: Providing a framework for books that are otherwise too small to find a regular publisher/distribution method, but which still have stories that demand to be told.
And the $1.99 price is perfect for a book this size. It lets the reader take a chance with an unknown author and feel like we got real value for our money!
I can't wait for the next book from Mr. Stoller!
In fact, whether or not you're a Seinfeld fan, you'll enjoy this slice of life look at character actor/comedian Fred, his experiences in the entertainment business, and his brief year pitching ideas to Larry and Jerry.
One thing I enjoyed was reading how a script for Seinfeld came together, with each of the four actors having a story line requiring approval by each of them before you could move forward with the script idea. Also how Jerry and Larry completely reworked the script once you gave it to them.
All good stuff.
Pick up this book and make Fred less unhappy!
