Comment on the Height of Jerry Seinfeld

TJE said on 16/Nov/15
I thought he had current height 5'10.5 and peak 5'11.
Steve said on 16/Oct/15
He made Jerry Lewis look short on the 1997 MDA Telethone.

Definitely lost some height.... Was recently watching an episode of SNL where Adam Levine probably had a good two inches on him and he actually seemed a little shorter than 5'9-10" Andy Samberg
RKV said on 23/Sep/15
Did not look a full 180cm next to 183cm Keith Hernandez in The Boyfriend episode.
Danimal said on 5/Sep/15
Rob, Jerry has lost A LOT of height. I just watched the episode of his new web show called Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and he had Julia Louis-Dreyfus on the show. They were standing side by side in several different spots and he NOWHERE near has the height on her he did 20-25 years ago while on the Seinfeld show. Watch old episodes of them together in the early 90's and even in her heels she came up to his mouth. TODAY, she's practically up to his forehead. I am NOT joking. He looks like he could be down a good 2". His neck used to be straight and long and now it's short and back and his upper torso looks compressed. 5'11" peak and 5'9" today based on his the 40 plus episodes he's done since 2012 of his webcam show with famous people.
[Editor Rob: I've not watched that show, but I'd be surprised if he was down towards 5ft 9 today.]

Still looks 5ft11 today. He's in good shape for 60.

His show Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee is phenomenal
C said on 10/Aug/15
In his Seinfeld years he looked 5'11.25-5'11.5
OJ said on 29/Jun/15
I'd guess he's about 5'10 now.

Check out this video with Jim Carrey. Carrey is in pretty flat boots, while Seinfeld is in huge Nike Shox.

I seriously doubt he grew 2 inches from the time he was 19...

He looks like a little kid in the portrait. Of course he grew!

Someone has issues with basic addition and subtraction. He was born in 1954 and that license was issued in 1971, putting him at 17, NOT 19. Nice try though ;-)

Shorter than Steve Martin.
MrTBlack said on 9/May/15
He probably just didn't bother to update that passport. He looks around 5'11".
Sam said on 20/Apr/15
My friend for years had his height at 15-16 listed on his drivers license as 5'10" and didn't bother to update it but he's really 6'1.5" fully grown! By my math, Jerry was 17 when he got that!

5'11 in the Seinfeld tv years. Might be closer to 5'10 today but not a flat one.
CDS said on 3/Mar/15
There was an episode of "Seinfeld" where a model claiming she is 5'10" looks about 3" shorter than Jerry, so I thought he was like 6'1"! LOL I quickly realized that wasn't the case in the movie theater episode when Kramer describes him as 5-foot-11; which is much more plausible. I'll give him 5'10.5-5'11". He looked about the same as 5'10"-11" Bryan Cranston (AKA "Tim Whatley") , maybe even a tad taller. Looked about 3-4" shorter than 6'2.5" Michael Richards (AKA "Kramer"). FTR- my "Seinfeld" cast guestimates:

Jerry- 5'10.75"
George (Jason Alexander)- 5'4.5"
Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfuss)- 5'3"
Kramer (Michael Richards)- 6'2.5"
Newman (Wayne Knight)- 5'6.5"
Tim Whatley (Bryan Cranston)- 5'10.5"
Morty Seinfeld-Jerry's dad (Barney Martin)- 5'9.5"
Mr. Kruger-George's boss, last season (Daniel von Bargen)- 6'0"
Various cameos, including voice of George Steinbrenner (Larry David, co-creator)- 5'11.5"

he was shorter than Gad Elmaleh on comedians in cars getting coffee...I think he's only 5-9...he used to be listed 5-9 after all

No way was he only 5'9" in the Seinfeld days. Michael Richards, who was 6'2"-6'3" had only about 4" on Jerry on the show. The absolute lowest was 5'10" and change at that time of his career.

Sorry, but he's the same height as Chris Rock today (on Jerry's new show).

FYI: The average height for a male in the United States is about 5ft 9in, not 5ft 10in. 5ft 10in is the average height for white males. I have calculated his height, based on environmental comparison measurements, to be about average. Also, notice that he always wears sneakers with substantial heal and soul beds. And, include his hair style that gives him another inch or two. Take away those things, and he is probably around 5ft 9in.

He most definitely wasn't 5'9" in the Seinfeld days. Was barely shorter than 6'0" Keith Hernandez in 1992. In fact, they looked around the same height. Also, Judge Reinhold (the close talker), who is 6'2" wasn't that much taller than Jerry either. He has lost height since then though.
Danimal said on 18/Nov/14
He's definitely lose some height Rob. I watch his Comedians in cars getting coffee show online and he was the same height as Chris Rock. Peak (around 5'11"). Today he's about 5'10" imo.
Dmeyer said on 16/Nov/14
Peak around 5'10.75 now 10.25-10.5 he looks near 179 with fallon and he looks barely 178cm with 177 french actor gad elmaleh

I don't know whether Jerry is 70 or 71 inches tall but I do know that he changes the label on his jeans from 32 inches to 31 because he is vain.

Definitely 5'11". Because he looks taller than average, which is 5'10" in the US.

MD said on 20/Oct/13
We're talking either 5'11" or 6'0" for Jimmy, neither of which would make Jerry 5'11".
MD said on 18/Oct/13

Here he is with 5'11.5" (maybe just 5'11"?) Jimmy Fallon:

Even taking into account some possible (but very minimal) height loss that comes with age, I doubt he was ever 5'11" unless Jimmy's in lifts. Point is that he's not currently 5'11", either. Obviously, they are both in dress shoes in these, BTW.
[Editor Rob: Fallon I think can look nearer 6ft than 11 most of the time I've seen stuff of his the last year or so]
f said on 13/Sep/13
how is he 5-11 when Gad Elmaleh is clearly taller than him...he was on comedians in cars getting coffee and he's listed at and tell me he's taller
Joe said on 20/Aug/13
He's probably little under 5'11". The other cast members are short so he looks taller.
Bosco said on 17/Aug/13
Keith Hernandez is a legit 6 foot. All baseball records show this. In every scene with Jerry he has no more, no less, then 2 inches. Jerry surrounds himself with Elaine, George, who both are around 5'3, so he looks taller, especially on screen. Kramer is so towering you just assume Jerry is 5'11 to 6, when he is 5'10", and 5'11" in sneakers. You're welcome.
Mathew said on 29/Jul/13
5'11" - 5'11.25" range.

I met Jerry in person and I'm 6' tall barefoot and he was as tall as me. But he does have puffy hair,so...
idk said on 8/Jan/13
If Michael Richards is only 6'3" I don't know if I buy a full 5'11" for Jerry. Maybe his 'in regular shoes' height.
Silent d said on 5/Oct/12
5 foot 11.
??????? said on 10/Aug/07
The Mom & Pop Store.(season6) Watch this episode of sienfeld and you will see jerry only with socks. and he stands next to kramer. you will get an idiea of how tall he really is
Jenna said on 9/Jul/07
I noticed someone was judging Jerry's height compared to the height of the doorway to his apartment on the show. That doorway was lower than an average doorway in order to make Kramer look even funnier when he storms into the apartment. So it will not be an accurate thing to measure against.
dmeyer said on 27/Jun/07
i have a friend who is 6'3 and he makes me look short considering that richard is the same so 5'11 for jerry but frank2 saw hin at 5'10 so could be 5'10.5
Anonymous said on 26/Jun/07
Something I noticed while watching season 8: there are alot of scenes where Kramer is barefoot or in flip flops on the show. I used to watch it and wonder why sometimes Michael Richards looks 4-5 inches taller than Jerry and other times 2.5-3. There were a few scenes where he put his feet up on the couch or whatever and was in flip flops or barefeet.

Next to 5'10 (maybe less) Chris Rock, he really doesn't look that much taller. I see a half inch, maybe pushing an inch.

Click Here

Doesn't really prove a whole lot, I just found it fascinating. Jerry looks a giant in this picture next to his wife. She must be tiny. Though Seinfeld's shoes look a bit suspcious.

Really hard to say for this guy, he can look 5'10.5 to 6 foot. He must wear lifts at times. I'll still go for 5'11 I suppose.
Aaron said on 12/May/07
good pic G-unit! Raises some interesting questions about those actors' heights. I'd say Mike Myers is wearing pretty normal footwear, as he does the 5'7" or so that he's listed at. Looks like Seinfeld is getting some help out of his footwear, and I find it weird that Rock looks as tall as timberlake when there should be an inch and half difference between the two in timberlake's favor. I'd say Rock is possibly 5'10.5" and wearing some big shoes, and Timberlake might be more 5'11" and possibly not standing as tall as he can in this photo.
G-unit said on 8/May/07
Now I am totally confused, please explain this picture anyone: Click Here
According to this site: mike myers 5'7, justin timberlake 5'11.5, chris rock 5'10, jerry seinfeld 5'11.
Which guys are the liftwearers?
D. Ray Morton said on 9/Apr/07
I don't think he's quite 5'11". He was the exact same height as J.K. Simmons (5'10" max) in that SNL "Oz" skit from the late 90s.
Jake said on 5/Mar/07
I believe he's 5'11", he was an inch taller than Bryan Cranston.
dmeyer said on 4/Feb/07
jerry looks like 5'10.5 on the show sometimes looks almost 5 inches shorter than kramer i would say he is close enaugh 5'11 like 179 180 range
Anonymous said on 3/Feb/07
Seinfeld called himself tall in an episode once. "You're tall, she's tall, I'm tall, what's the difference who's tall, we're all tall!" So he must be at least 5'11". That comment by the way might apply to people on here...what's the difference how tall everyone is?
...I remember that episode...that lady said she was 5"10 that is soo off...jerry looked to be atleast 3 inchese taller than her..then he saying hes 6"2?!? no way...kramer on the show is 6"2 to 6-3...and jerry looked about 5 inches shorter than him...sooo no way hes 5"11...they probably lied about her height just cause she played a model on the show..shes probably on 5"6-5"7 ish so jerry would be about 5"9
GPM said on 16/Jan/07
I saw Seinfeld on The Tonight Show, and he looked about an inch shorter than Leno. If Leno is 5'11", then that would make Seinfeld, 5'10". I also watch a lot of Seinfeld, and they always have tall actresses, wear flat shoes, to make Seinfeld look taller.
Frank said on 2/Jan/07
I still say Jerry is 5 ft 10 ....Im 5ft 11 1/2 and i took a picture with Keith Hernandez and me & Keith looked almost the same height and Keith was about 2 inches taller than Jerry....Keith was more than an inch taller than Jerry i know that for sure
Lmeister said on 26/Dec/06
Jerry looks 5'11'', but he is sucha twat that he could be wearing lifts even in socks. The only funny person in the show is Kramer.
Kevin said on 6/Dec/06
No way Jerry is 5'11", look at his T-Rex arms

Paidrag - Would you say 5'11'' for Seinfeld?

[Padraig: I have never watched or seen anything this guy has been in.]
Stindra said on 19/Nov/06
So that means that Jerry Seinfeld, he's 8 inches taller than Julia "Elaine" Louis Dreyfus... Well that's interesting... or.. probably not, by the way GREAT page, I have found all the celebrite heights that I've loooked for here, so keep going!
Frank said on 19/Oct/06
Ok Danimal 5ft 10.5 :o)
Danimal said on 19/Oct/06
Frank, I have the episode and I can clearly see in the lockeroom when they're talking that we have an inch diff. max between the two of them. If anything, Jerry, is 5'10.5" at the very least. Lets meet half way Frank.
Frank said on 19/Oct/06
I still day Jerry is 5ft 10 ...Sorry Danimal he was more than an inch shorter than Keith Hernandez and i was told he was an inch shorter than Jay Leno who is 5ft 11
Danimal said on 13/Oct/06
I agree with you Padraig.
Bowes/McDougall said on 12/Oct/06
If you're actually 6 feet tall, there's no reason to refer to yourself as 5'11 (as Jerry and others have done on several occasions). In fact, people who are 5'11 usually give themselves the extra inch and go with 6 even. So if someone refers to themselves as 5'11, they're that height at a MAXIMUM.

[Padraig: All 5 feet 11 men will say 6 feet, while all 6 feet women will say 5 feet 11. That's a theory, anyway.]
Danimal said on 4/Oct/06
Then why ANONYMOUS has he been referred to as 5'11" on the show?
Anonymous said on 4/Oct/06
as a friend of jason alexander I can confirm that jerry seinfeld is 6 ft on the nose.

Keith didn't have at least 2" on Jerry. 1" tops.

Interesting Frank.Jerry looked 6ft and 5-11 to me,different his mom said,he wears lifts.

Glemm i would have to say 5ft10 because Keith Hernandez is 6ft tall i met him
and he had atleast 2 inches on Jerry
Glenn said on 6/Sep/06
Could you tell your Son to pose with fans please? he never is sweet.posing with fans for photos shouldnt hurt.are you really his mother? he appeared 5-11 to me.
bill said on 6/Sep/06
i would have thought jerry was pretty tall. he doesn't look too bad next to kramer in the shows, and kramer's pretty tall
Mrs Seinfeld said on 5/Sep/06
Trust me, this guy is not an exceedingly tall man and I consider anything over 5ft10 tall. He is approximately 5f10, 178cm, no shorter or taller. He does wear elevator shoes at times, other times there is simply no need, but barefoot he stands 178cm. How do I know this, I am his beloved mother!
Danimal said on 25/Aug/06
How can he be at least 6'0" when he has been listed as 5'11" for ages (even on his own show)? Keith Hernandez who is listed at 6'0" was slightly taller than Jerry on the show, putting Jerry at 5'11".
MJ said on 24/Aug/06
wow said on 7/Aug/06
Wow, are people really that crazy about Seinfeld? I stood next to JS many times in the elevator at an old ad job and I'll tell you one thing, JS looks shorter by himself because he's got a big head and small shoulders but when he stood next to me, he was about 5-10/11. The head adds like 2 inches though so he looks odd.
dmeyer said on 31/Jul/06
kramer is a good 4 inches on jerry so jerry is about 180 exept if kramer is over 6 feet 3
Frank said on 17/Jul/06
I met Keith Hernandez and he is 6ft tall and i would say Jerry is 5ft 10
because Keith did look more than an inch taller than Jerry
dmeyer said on 2/Jul/06
in getty images he looks more than 1 inch smaller than keith maybe bad posture but i would like to see pics were he looks 181 you seem pretty sure rob
dmeyer said on 29/Jun/06
if jerry is 6'2" then richards is 6'7" it dosnt make sens
anonymous said on 28/Jun/06
oh man, jerry is about 6'2. seinfeld lives on the upper west side- i do too. i've seen this guy periodically for like 18 years now and he's four inches taller than me on any day. i'm 5'10.5. you should really up this guy's listing.

My Predictions for all the Seinfeld stars are as follows:

Jerry: 5'10 .5

Kramer: 6'3

George: 5'4

Elaine: 5'4
Azarea said on 5/May/06
clearly much taller than jennifer coolidge in "the masseuse" episode of seinfeld.Immediately afterwards she walks away clearly showing big-heeled shoes, which means he is really above average,I'd say 180 is very much corect.Also, the guy recieved 225000000 dollers from seinfeld rights, and has the guinness recorde for most money refused when he wouldnt do a 10th season, so he really doesnt need to be "liked" or even appreciative of the people making him this rich, ie: the fans.
Jake said on 29/Mar/06
I don't think Jerry ever said he was 5'9.5" or 5'10". He did refer to himself as "tall" one time. And C, the only time where Jerry looked 6'1" was when he stood next to Brad Garrett, and I'm guessing that he was standing on a little something. He is 5'11".
Jonny said on 28/Mar/06
In an episode of Seinfeld Jerry says he is 5'10", I would believe 5'11" but he definitely said 5'10", doubt he would round down!
sf said on 24/Mar/06
Cause someone walks past you and doesn't want to take photos or sign autographs doesn't make them a prick. I think autographs are ridiculous and if I ever was famous(good luck!) I wouldn't sign them either cause I'd be embarrased to - all they are is a name on a piece of paper, worthless. Glenn, not trying to put down what you do; but, to me, I can't see why anyone wants an autograph or would pay for one. So what - it's just somebody's signature? Also - I don't like to be bothered, and I'm not famous. If I was famous I'm sure I'd get tired of people always wanting a piece of me, wanting photos with me, etc. I'd just want people to leave me alone, usually.
Leung said on 23/Mar/06
5'11" sounds right, no surprises regarding his height. One thing that has surprised me was the amount of weight he seems to have put on since the TV show ended, probably because he has happily settled into married life.
x said on 22/Mar/06
Jerry in the height episode; I am five nine and a half. I believe this is the same one where he is obsessed about his waist size and changes it from a 31 to a 30.
dmeyer said on 18/Mar/06
i agree with you rob 181 is possible but more likely 180
Frank said on 18/Mar/06
I believe Jerry is 5 ft 10 for 2 reasons #1. He was an inch shorter than the 5ft 11 Jay Leno #2. He looked 2 inches shorter than the 6ft Keith Hernandez
Kramer at best is 6ft 3 he was a couple of inches shorter than the 6ft 5 Ex New York Yankee Paul O'Neil so to Say Kramer is 6ft 5 to 6ft 6 is crazy
I met & Took a picture with Ex Met Keith Hernandez and he was slightly Taller than me and im 5ft 11 1/2 and im taller than Jerry
dmeyer said on 17/Mar/06
after watching getty images i think 180 seems right

[Editor Rob: I would agree, 180 pushing 181cm, just leave him 180...]
Glenn said on 11/Mar/06
cause its virtually impossible to get him to stop for pics or autos.
rwfender said on 11/Mar/06
why is he a prick? just curious cuz he seems like a nice guy on tv
Glenn said on 10/Mar/06
He is 5-11.walked past me enough.prick he is.
rwfender said on 27/Feb/06
no way, i think kramer is 6'2-6'2.5 and jerry is 5'11ish. i never got the impression that jerry was 6ft plus guy but he always seemed a little above average to me. i just can't see 6'1 but i would believe just under 6ft
Anonymous said on 26/Feb/06
personally i think he's a solid 6 footer, maybe even 6'0˝" or 6'1"... i honestly think they downplayed his height in the show to make him look more average because jason alexander and julia dreyfus always wore dress shoes with heels that probably gave them several inches, and jerry almost always wore sneakers, and yet he still towered over them. and michael richards usually wore dress shoes which give you about an inch, and you could tell that there was a 3-4 inch differnce max between him and jerry. he's listed as 6'3" but i think he's closer to 6'4" because even on seinfeld with his height downplayed, you can tell he's a really tall guy, maybe even 6'4˝"... so i think 6'-6'1" is fair assumption for seinfeld.
dmeyer said on 15/Feb/06
when you see him besides michael 6'3" richards in a equal angle jerry looks 181 since 5'11 is very close to 181 he just says 5'11 but he might be only 5'11 but he is in the 180 181 range
Greg said on 18/Jan/06
Not sure how anyone can really judge how tall Jerry and Kramer are w/all that big hair those guys have. Also, I think most heights are exagerated anyways. I met a basketball player who was supposed to be 6'5", and I was nearly looking him in the eyes... and I'm only 6'1".
dmeyer said on 14/Dec/05
after watching seinfeld there is about 4" diference with kramer so he is a solid 5'11
Kal said on 4/Dec/05
Yep I got to say this one looks right -- he actually looks closer to 6". It's wierd coz you tend to expect him to be so short. He's so frail and weedy but not skinny - he has a very oddly shaped body with strange Martian limb proportions (a big head, large upper body but short legs, medium sized arms) that he gets billed as shorter than he really is.

When viewing footage of him from media releases that show him walking in trainers and watching episodes of Seinfeld with a tall M.Richards nearby, you can see he's roughly under six foot (not quite reaching I suspect). George appears pretty close to his chin and if your 5"5 quote for him is correct, then we're looking at a suprisingly tall Seinfeld with a big head.

you right rob is around slightly above 5'11 because he doesnt look a full 4" shorter than richards more like 3.5 si he is minimum 181 i would have never imagined jerry was that tall because for me tall is between 5'11 and 6'2
TheMasterOfReality said on 1/Dec/05
I think Jerry Seinfeld is 6'0". I'm 5'10" and just looking at him on screen, I can tell he's a pretty tall guy. I'd pin him at exactly 6'0". There's no way he's only 5'9".
Gramps said on 19/Nov/05
I agree, Viper. But he does seem to choose footwear sometimes with fairly tall heels.

Jay doesnt wear lifts,I dont think.
LMAO said on 18/Nov/05
jay is about 6-1 with lifts so jerry is about 6 feet with regular shoes. that makes him the 5-11 he is.
MD said on 18/Nov/05
He was just on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno tonight, and he was AT LEAST a full inch shorter than Jay when standing next to him. That leaves him somewhere between 5'9" and 5'10" and possible shorter if you believe Jay is only 5'9".
Horatio said on 13/Nov/05
Seinfeld strikes me as someone who is solidly average height, or perhaps a bit above average. 5'10-5'11, but definitely under 6'. Towers over George, but dwarfed by Kramer.
Height Tracker said on 10/Nov/05
Wow Anonymous! You're so smart. You're basing your "evidence" on something you read in People Magazine. You've never even met Seinfeld, but you "know" he is 6'2" because of an article you read that probably wasn't even true. Don't you think that they make stories up in People Magazine, and not everything is totally factual?
Anonymous said on 9/Nov/05
hey, idiots read the issue of people that I talked about. none of you are real Seinfeld fans, how disappointing. Jerry would be disgusted in all of you.
Read the magazine, he even tells the truth, then when you faggots now something then talk to me. retards
Gramps said on 2/Nov/05
Hey Anonymous: You've GOTTA be joking! Everybody on the planet knows Kramer is 6'3" and Seinfeld is close to 6'0". Nice try, though!
Viper652 said on 1/Nov/05
Jerrys height is 5-10.5
Height Tracker said on 1/Nov/05
Anonymous, what the hell are you talking about? There is no way that Seinfeld is anywhere near 6'2". He looks a solid 5'10" or 5'11" on the show, and that's what he is.
Anonymous said on 31/Oct/05
Seifeld is actually 6'2. I know this for a fact. Its in the july issue of people mag. kramer is 6'6. Jerry said he did not want people to know he was that tall because he thought the show would fail. He wanted people to believe he was just an average guy. And he truly fooled everyone.
Anonymous said on 29/Oct/05
In an episode, Michael Richards is standing beside a height chart, and his eyelevel is just slightly below 6 ft, (with shoes on, and about 5' 11" without). The top of Jerry´s head seems to hit Michael Richards eyelevel, and therefore I would agree on Jerry being 5' 11" (or even more)...

"Are you telling me that jerry is 3 inches taller than the average man???"

Huh? The average man is close to 5'10"
DP said on 8/Oct/05
I don't know if he's 5'11" or 5'11.5" but Jerry doesn't seem like he's playing any games with his height. We all seem to be in agreement this is approximately his height.
Mcfan said on 15/Sep/05
I don't think Jerry is over 5'11, but I think Chris Rock is 5'10
Mr. Awesome said on 24/Aug/05
Rob, I think this height for Seinfeld is very accurate. I've always believed that he's 5'11'', or even a bit more. As has been reiterated so many times before in various comments, he looks this height in relation to his co-stars, and is consistently described as 5’11’’ on the show. In the episodes with Keith Hernandez, (who is commonly listed at 6'0'' even), Jerry was, AT MOST, an inch shorter than Hernandez. Compared to Michael Richards and Wayne Knight, 6’0’’ looks completely correct for Hernandez. Nothing in Height Police’s comment made anything remotely close to a fragment of sense. They stated at one point that Seinfeld tries to make him look “average”, and in the same comment that Seinfeld tries to make himself look “tall”. That’s just ridiculous and should be ignored cause it’s contradicting information Everything checks out, Rob; sightings are quite consistent stating he’s at least 5’11’’, he’s referred to as 5’11’’ in the show, and comparisons with other people on the show. Leave this one, dude, you’re absolutely correct.
CelebHeights Editor said on 24/Aug/05
From Seinfeld newsgroup. Someone at 5ft 9' claimed he was taller than Jerry, but somebody responded: "I have met Jerry now about 3 or 4 times. I have two different picutures of my wife and I with him and he is definitely not shorter than I am and I am definitely 5'11" tall. I.e., he is approximately 6' tall. F.y.i., based on them standing next to me, I would guess the rest of the cast to be the following heights (approximately): Michael Richards--6'4"
Jason Alexander--5'4" Julia LD--5'4" (basically the same height as JA, give or take a 1/2") Jerry Stiller--5'3""
Anonymous said on 22/Aug/05
when you see him close to 191 cm richards 181 cm is very possible even 182 cm maybe
CelebHeights Editor said on 21/Aug/05
From gossip newsgroup: "Jerry Seinfeld is genuinely tall -- I almost bumped into him in the Rockefeller Center concourse a few years ago...I think he's taller even than he looks on TV, which isn't true of most"
dmeyer said on 21/Jul/05
i am watching seinfeld all the time kramer is no less than 6'3'' and there is no more than 3.5-4 inches diferance between them so seinfeld gotta be a solid 5'11
Robert L said on 21/Jun/05
Well avg height is 5'9(which I am)although I would say seinfeld is about that because everyone knows alexander is not 5'5,and Julia dreyfus while very sexy is not a tall woman,I would say seinfeld is shorter than he says.
Height Police said on 9/Jun/05
Seinfeld is 5-9. He had complete control over the show and tried to make himself the normal average man compared to the extremes of George and Kraemer.

Everything in the apartment is carefully calculated to make him look tall. Ever notice the shorter refrigerator?

Also, Seinfeld is extremely skinny. Toothpick skinny, which gives the illusion of tallness.
Anonymous said on 11/May/05
Jerry is about 5'10". Ive met him. Very average height.
Mr. R said on 29/Apr/05
Oh come on Smoke, you and I have agreed a lot more than we have disagreed. I believe that Jerry is between 5-10 and 5-11, and we can chalk this one up to you and I getting it right!
Smoke said on 29/Apr/05
Mr. R, I'm the first to agree with you when you're right (which doesn't seem to be very often)! :) But I think you got this one right, it's always better to compare the heights of people who are closer in heights (Reinhold and Seinfeld) and not father (Seinfeld and Richards). I agree with your 5'10"-ish estimate, but we can only know for sure if we were to meet Jerry for ourselves, I also think Ricardo is onto something because, if you judge by the doorway, Jerry really does look a 5'9"er when he walks through it! He is definately atleast marginally shorter than 5'11", by now he is 179 cm at most.
Mr. R said on 28/Apr/05
If you remember Smoke, I raised a challenge to this height. I don't think that he is quite 5-11, but no shorter than 5-10, probably somewhere in between. I base this on my run in with Jason Alexander, who was much shorter than I realized, and knowing that I'm 5-11.5, and I towered over him, much more than it seemed Jerry did on-screen
Smoke said on 27/Apr/05
I caught an episode with (close talker) Judge Reinhold and Jerry, I've never run into Jerry before, but I have met Judge, and he was a solid 6 footer (about 184 cm), Jerry did look about 2 inches, not one inch shorter. Granted footwear could have been a factor in this, but if you compare eye levels, Seinfeld didn't quite look 5'11". I've said in the past that Jerry has always seemed relatively tall ("I'm tall, you're tall, we're all tall!"), but to paraphrase our editor, hold your horses Jerry, you're not that tall! I think 5'10"-5'11" is definately his range. It'd be cool if we could get a screenshot of Mr. Closer Talker and Jerry together.
Ric said on 26/Apr/05
HAHAHA. You guys have Jason Alexander at 5'3. That's just mean. HAHAHA. And Jerry Seinfeld IS 5'11, however, in a particular episode he did have the black and white no-brand shoes that gives him about 2 inches, my friend pointed it out because he has the same ones. That's why sometimes he looks closer to "Kramer" (Micheal Richards)'s height. But when he's not wearing those, he really is 5'11.
Ricardo said on 31/Mar/05
Maybe he is 5'11" but he doesn't look it on screen to me.
Smoke said on 28/Mar/05
Ricardo depending on what part of the world you are from the average man can be anything from 5'6"-6'0". I do think that Jerry is ever so slightly above average height for an American man, which is 177 cm or almost 5'10". He isn't a tall guy, 5'11" is not tall by any stretch, but he isn't short. HE DOES LOOK RELATIVELY TALL, and he is not that thin. I agree with our editor that he truely does look a solid 5'11". In Seinfeld there are no signs of him wearing lifts and he does look quite a bit taller than George (5'4.5"). Michael Richards wasn't anything less than 190 cm during his time on Seinfeld and Jerry did look about 10 cms shorter. I stand by the fact that Jerry is indeed 5'11" and not 5'9". He definately can't pass for anything more than 5'11" though.
Ricardo said on 28/Mar/05
Lol, this reminds me of what happens with my friend who is about 5'9" and has 5'11" on his id card and everyone beleives him. it's because he is skinny and has a lot of hair,and was measured with footwear on. i'm about the same height but muscular and don't have a lot of hair, so when i tell anyone i'm 5'8" they insist i'm 5'6" until they see me and my friend standing together. Having a lot of hair and being skinny can make you look 2-3 inches taller from a glance and on television. I'm not totally sure about Jerry's height he just doesn't look 5'11", 5'11 looks tall. Are you telling me that jerry is 3 inches taller than the average man???
Smoke said on 27/Mar/05
I have to agree, Jerry does look dead on 4 inches shorter than Michael Richards in Seinfeld, so unless Richards is less than 6'3", Jerry has to be around 5'11". I'm not sure as to Jerry's footwear though, but judging by his appearnce next to Kramer he does look it. I think that the 5'3" you guys have Jason Alexander at is a little bit stingy! Now I know the guy is rude in person, but I agree with our Editor's listing of 5'4.5", he's not quite 5'5" but he definately isn't 5'3" either. It's easy to downgrade/upgrade people because of short/long legs, Alexander and Kevin James are classics because they appear shorter due to this and someone like Venus Williams is a classic example of looking taller due to longer legs. Jerry certainly looks atleast 6 inches taller than Alexander and 4 inches shorter than Richards, Louise-Dreyfus is tough to pindown because she's always wearing footwear that support's her height.
Chris said on 26/Mar/05
Jerry Seinfeld is 5ft 11 for sure. Standing next to 6ft 3 Michael Richards (Kramer), it looks correct. When Kramer is looking for his friend in one episode he describes Jerry as 5ft 11.
Ricardo said on 26/Mar/05
I agree with you both. the height of a typical doorway is about 6'7" (btw Rob, this is a good way to measure celebrities also.)If Jerry is 5'11" when he had his shoes on he would stand at about 6'0 1/2", therefore he would be about 6 and a 1/2" inches shorter than the top of the doorway. Does he look 6 1/2" inches shorter than the doorway in seinfeld?, no. Also beside his extremely short co-stars who are about 5'1" and 5'3", if he was 5'11" he would tower over them. Instead he just looks average and they just look short. My guess is that he is about 5'9 or a little over and is 5'11" with his shoes on and all that hair on his head... never liked him, always thought he was the last funny one on the show...
Mr. R said on 18/Mar/05
I agree. As I said elsewhere, Jason was between 5'3-4", and Jerry does not seem 7 inches taller. This should be investigated further.
seinfeld viewer said on 18/Mar/05
Seinfeld is more 5'9". If he were really 5'11", he would have had more height on his diminutive co-stars (Julia and Jason; 5'1" and 5'3" respectively).
