Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner and entertainment icon Jerry Seinfeld was born in Brooklyn, New York and grew up in Massapequa, Long Island. In 1989, Seinfeld teamed up with fellow stand up comedian Larry David and created Seinfeld Chronicles for Castle Rock Entertainment. This became the template for one of the most successful series in the history of television in NBC's Seinfeld. After retiring from his hit series, Seinfeld immediately returned to what he loved most - performing standup comedy. Seinfeld also starred, wrote and produced the DreamWorks animated box office hit Bee Movie, which premiered in November 2007.
