Paul Reiser (born March 30, 1957) is an American actor, author and stand-up comedian, best known for his role in Mad About You.

Career

Born to a Jewish-American family, Reiser graduated from Stuyvesant High School in New York City and earned his bachelor's degree at Binghamton University, where he majored in music (piano, composition). He was active in campus theater productions, and founded "The Little Theater That Could," an on-campus community theater organization located in Hinman College, Reiser's dorm community. It was later renamed Hinman Production Company. Reiser eventually found his calling when he performed in New York City comedy clubs during university summer breaks.

Reiser married Paula Ravets in 1988; they have two sons together, Ezra (born 1995) and Leon (born 2000).

Reiser's TV credits include My Two Dads and the British TV drama My Beautiful Son.

Reiser played a treacherous company executive in James Cameron's 1986 movie Aliens, but rose to fame as the creator and star of Mad About You, a long-running sitcom co-starring Helen Hunt. The show was so successful that in the final 1999 season, he and Hunt were paid US$1 million per episode.

Reiser has written two books: Couplehood, about the ups and downs of being in a committed relationship, and Babyhood, about the toils and joys of having a baby. Couplehood was unique in the fact it started on page 145. Reiser explains this is to give the reader a false sense of accomplishment.
