You'd know Fred Stoller if you saw him. He has appeared on practically every great sitcom you've ever seen - Everybody Loves Raymond, Friends, and Murphy Brown just to name a few. But he has never been a regular on a series, always the guest star. He longs to find a showbiz home. Instead, he is a television foster child, shuttling from show to show in the vain hope that one will finally agree to keep him. My Seinfeld Year tells the hysterical and bittersweet story of what happened when Stoller finally got a shot at the showbiz stability he'd always dreamed of - as a staff writer on one of the biggest television shows in history.

Fred Stoller owes me $1.95 =(
If Fred Stoller would have had at least one interesting thing to say or story to tell or was the slightest bit funny this could have maybe, maybe made it to 2 stars.
Ready Player One
If it have been read, written and about anyone else.
Please don't buy this. I know it's only $1.95 but believe me, you'll hate yourself. Take the two bucks and set it on fire, those few seconds of excitement watching your money burn will be 1000x more enjoyable than listening to this book.
I saw the title and thought "Oh, Fred Stoller...I know him. He spent a year writing on Seinfeld!!? I bet hearing him recount that year will be pretty funny and it's only 2 bucks!" Well was I wrong. Fred is a long time "comic" and actor, he's most famous for playing Gerard on Everybody Loves Raymond.
Fred is a colossal bore. This book is awful, hearing him read it in his nebbish voice is beyond annoying. I always thought the voice he used was a bit, part of the act, but it's not! It's really how he talks and it intolerable. The thing that makes it so intolerable is that he's not telling us anything about writing on Seinfeld but it's his life story and his life couldn't be less interesting.
It's mostly him finding different ways to bitch about not becoming a famous actor and how he's still a struggling actor in his 50's and how even from a young age his life was boring and unfunny.
But don't take my word for it on how boring and lame Fred Stoller's life story is, just look at the run time, 1 hour 45 minutes. Now if you're thinking to yourself "boy, I don't know if it would take me 1:45 to tell my life story, that seems like a long time." You may be right, but you're not a "comedian"/actor who's had a 30+ year career in showbusiness. Here are a few examples to prove my point.
Last Words by George Carlin 6 hours 23 minutes
The Other Great Depression by Richard Lewis 9 hours 20 minutes
Born Standing Up by Steve Martin 4 hours 3 minutes
Dirty Daddy by Bob Saget 6 hours 45 minutes
I think you get my point. Please don't buy this book.
