Jason Alexander

[COMEDY] George Costanza was the most inadequate man in television history, but Jason Alexander—the man who brought Costanza to life – is far from it. A writer, director, Broadway veteran and two-time Tony-Award winner, Alexander’s career defines proficiency. He is a musician with a pair of sharp dancing feet, who held supporting roles in several films, including Pretty Woman and played 14 different characters in Jerome Robbins’ Broadway. George Costanza wouldn’t live on as one of the most beloved characters in television history had he been played by anyone but Alexander. Costanza resonated with viewers, offering a dimension that no other Seinfeld character had. He was short and stocky, yet spastically scrappy with no moral high ground and paralyzing self-esteem. In the event of a fire, he was the guy who would gladly plow over handicapped grandmothers and small children to be the first out the door. Lines like, “We live in a society!” and “the Jerk Store called and they’re running out of you,” were championed by Alexander’s sidesplitting delivery. Even extensive monologues like the one about wrestling a whale – “The sea was angry that day, my friends” – or proposing the death penalty for double parkers, were pure gold with Alexander narrating. Catch Jason Alexander’s comedy-soaked, one-man variety show at Kleinhan’s on Saturday, October 17.
