Paul Reiser

Paul Reiser (born March 30, 1957) is an American actor. Reiser, now known mostly for his starring television roles, started his career as a stand-up comedian.

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

Though also having a somewhat successful film career, Reiser is most well-known for his role in Mad About You, a long running sit-com co-starring Helen Hunt. The show was so successful, that in the final 1999 season, he and Hunt were paid $1 million per episode for the show.

Reiser graduated from Stuyvesant High School in New York City and did his bachelor's degree at Binghamton University, where he majored in music (piano, composition). He was active in campus theater productions, but it was during the summers between college, where he performed in New York City comedy clubs, that he found his calling.

Reiser married Paula Ravets in 1988; they have one son together, Ezra (born 1995).

Reiser also wrote one book, Babyhood, about the toils and joys of having a baby.
