  • One of the salutary byproducts of the TV series Seinfeld is that it created a market in the '90s for sitcoms built around the comedy routines of young, hip New York comics. One of the best of these programs was Mad About You, created by and starring Manhattan-born Paul Reiser. Reiser and Seinfeld share more than a similarity of sitcoms; together with comedians Larry Miller and Mark Schiff, they comprise what has been unofficially dubbed the Four Funniest Men in the World Club, which has met for lunch each New Year's Day for the past several years. Reiser's credentials include a degree from S.U.N.Y.-Binghamton, a short stint as a health food distributor, and a 1982 film debut in Diner. Most of his film roles have been in comedies, though he was effectively cast as a greedy space traveler (who comes to a well-deserved bad end) in 1986's Aliens. Reiser has noted that his weekly series Mad About You, in which he co-starred with Helen Hunt, was based on his relationship with his wife, Paula. In 1995, Paul Reiser took a brief respite from Mad About You to star in the "single dad" comedy Bye Bye Love.As the new decade began, and Mad About You came to a close, Resier appeared in One Night at McCool's, and four years later realized a personal dream by co-starring with Peter Falk in The Thing About My Folks, a film Resier co-wrote as well. He was interviewed in The Aristocrats, and appeared as himself in Funny People. In 2011 he masterminded the very short-lived NBC sitcom The Paul Reiser Show.

QUOTES FROM Paul Reiser CHARACTERS

Simon Richards
Sometimes the answer you're looking for is in the place you're not looking.
Jim
Dying broke and drunk and full of heroin at the age of 34 is not exactly my idea of success.
Andrew Neyman
I'd rather die drunk, broke at 34 and have people at a dinner table talk about me than live to be rich and sober at 90 and nobody remember who I was.
Carter Burke
I made a bad call.
Carter Burke
How about we make a campfire, sing a couple of songs?
Esther Lipman
Jerry: Toxteth, Mother, Toxteth. Sort of a combination of toxic and death. Esther: so it's a slum? Jerry: It aspires to be a slum.
Dr. Jerry Lipman
Toxteth, Mother, Toxteth. Sort of a combination of toxic and death.
Esther Lipman
So it's a slum?
Dr. Jerry Lipman
It aspires to be a slum.
Ellen Ripley
You're going out there to destroy them, right? Not to study. Not to bring back, but to wipe them out?
Carter Burke
That's the plan.
Pvt. Hudson
Game over man! Game over! What the fuck are we going to do now? What are we gonna do?
Carter Burke
Maybe we can build a fire, sing a couple of songs, huh?
Carter Burke
Ripley...! You know, I... I expected more from you. I thought you'd be smarter than this.
Carter Burke
Ripley! You know, I... I expected more from you. I thought you'd be smarter than this.
Ellen Ripley
I'm happy to disappoint you.
Carter Burke
Maybe we could build a fire and sing couple of songs, huh? Why don't we try that?!
