Jeff Garlin's talent encompasses writing, producing, directing, acting and performing stand-up comedy. Garlin both co-stars and executive produces the HBO series "Curb Your Enthusiasm." The unique comedy, which is one of the rare television shows to become part of the national zeitgeist, stars "Seinfeld" creator Larry David with Garlin portraying his loyal manager. The critically acclaimed series has won numerous awards, including the Golden Globe Award for Best Comedy, The Danny Thomas Producer of the Year Award from the Producers Guild of America, and the AFI Comedy Series of the Year award.
Born and raised in Chicago and then South Florida, Garlin studied filmmaking and began performing stand-up comedy while at the University of Miami. He has toured the country as a stand-up comedian, is an alumnus of Chicago's Second City Theatre, and has written and starred in three critically acclaimed solo shows ("I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With," "Uncomplicated" and "Concentrated"). Garlin recently adapted his solo show "I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With" into an independent film. It premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2006 to critical acclaim and will be released in theatres in this year. Garlin has also directed "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and both Jon Stewart ("Unleavened") and Denis Leary ("Lock-n-Load") in their HBO specials.
Garlin has extensive feature acting credits, including a starring role opposite Eddie Murphy in the Columbia/Tristar comedy "Daddy Day Care."
