I agree that he was 5'11, but he seems closer to 5'10-5'10.5 nowadays. He looks barely taller than 5'10 Chris Rock in more recent photos. At the Bee Movie premiere in the 2000s, Jerry was taller than Chris Rock in similar footwear.

Nah I dont think that he is this tall. Always in sport sneakers (+3 or 4 cm) and still a big difference with Michael Richards (Kramer). I think something like 176 cm.

Rob, any ideas on Liz Sheridan’s height? 5’6.5”?
Editor Rob
Still looked about 5ft 6 range on Seinfeld, and maybe lost a bit of height by that point so that is possible.

He's looking a bit less than this today
berta said on 2/Nov/21
yeah i must agrre with judge he can look 180 cm. But i mean most guys here say brad pitt is barely 5´11 do you really think this guy is the taller if they got measured 20 years back? I think brad pitt would have 1cm on him easy. 179 is better for jerry. ANd 180,5 for brad.
Dmeyer said on 25/Oct/21
In comédien in cars looks 5-10.5 AT most with thé Nike shoes on so 5-10 flat IS possible today Peak hé looks 5-11
Pere said on 7/Oct/21
Dmeyer said on 23/Mar/21
At Peak looked 180-1cm today 178-179cm dosnt look 5-11 even with Nike shox on
Ben - 6'0 said on 16/Mar/21
Hi Rob, would you say this picture with listed 6’1 Judge Reinhold supports the 5’11 listing for Seinfeld? Looks about a two inch difference here, right? Click Here

I thought he was a little closer to 5’10 going by how he looks with listed weak 6’3 Michael Richards, until I just saw this episode with him and Reinhold (Season 5; Episodes 18/19 “The Raincoats”).
Editor Rob
Could be a solid 5ft 11 range there with Judge.

and Judge in person is still close to 6ft 1, at least when I seen him he looked taller than 6ft actors quite easily.

He's an average height guy.
Bomb said on 30/Nov/20
Just watched comedians in cars getting coffee with Steve Martin. Steve looked at least 1.5 inch taller. You have him listed at 5’10.5”. Does Jerry pay you?
berta said on 28/Nov/20
never been a mm over 179 and looks no taller than 178 today. eddie murphy looked fraction taller even.
Jkiller said on 7/Sep/20
Decent 5'10.75.
Mike O said on 9/Aug/20
Saw him about 20 years ago walking down the street in Manhattan and he was taller than I expected, very close to if not actually at 6'. Solidly built guy and a booming (if distinctly nasal) voice, lower than it sounded on TV. Back then, probably a solid 5'11" to 6', now likely more 5'10" to 5'11".
Canson said on 25/Jun/20
I can see height loss today. But not surprising at that age
Dmeyer said on 23/Jun/20
today he looks at most 5'10,5 while in shox that give 1-1,3cm over many footwear so 178cm peak 179,5cm lost 1,5cm
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/May/20

Camera tricks. Jerry is probably 5'11 peak i wouldn't argue less but look at least 5'10 3/4 with Jimmy Fallon. Click Here Look at this picture from last year next to 5'9 1/4 Eddie Murphy we can still see 5'11 which Eddie tilt up head more to look fraction less on top of head which indicate solid 4cm between them.
BT said on 5/May/20
@Rob: At 66 years of age Jerry looks to have lost 0.5-0.75 inch range. Think it's time for a current/peak listing! He struggles to even look 5'10 now: Click Here.
Dan casio said on 29/Apr/20
If you go watch Curb season 7 there are plenty of scenes where jerry looks shorter than a 60 year old Laery David who is around 5ft10

Jerry needs a definite downgrade
Aidan strong 5'10 said on 4/Apr/20
i think he is 5’10 1/4” now. i think the other actors on seinfeld have shrunk as well
Tall Sam said on 23/Mar/20
Are you going to give Jerry a current height, Rob? Based on the Comedians in Cars show he rarely looks anything past 5'10.5". Eddie Murphy looked scarcely shorter for example and various 5'11" guys comfortably edged him out.
Editor Rob
He likely isn't more than 10.5 today.
191 cm Jason said on 15/Feb/20
I met him 10 years ago im 100% positive he is 5'10'
Dmeyer said on 1/Jan/20
he has aleast 0,3in more shoes and better posture defenetly looks 5'10 flat , DiCaprio looks aleast 1in taller
Mickie said on 27/Dec/19
I think he's lost a bit of height from his peak. 5'11" peak is believable to me but I don't see him measuring that today (barefoot).
Peter175 said on 22/Dec/19
Rob do you think he's 179 today? He kinda looks really short with Obama
Click Here
Like others have said it looks 2.5 inches here
Editor Rob
He generally can seem between 5ft 10 and 11 so may have lost a half inch now.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Nov/19
5'10 3/4 not more. Jerry could also be 5'10 1/2.
Voiceless Dental said on 26/Sep/19

Check from 17:18 Looks a bit under the 5'11 mark. Especially at 17:22.
Monkey knees said on 24/Sep/19
5ft 10.5in top nowadays. Watching him with 5ft 11in Alec Baldwin on his Netflix "comedians in cars..." And he is shorter than Alec, even whilst wearing his favoured Nike Shox huge heeled trainers.
NvrPaysAttention said on 22/Sep/19
I’d say a little over 5’9 barefoot. He never looked taller than 5’10 to me.
CDS said on 20/Sep/19
I can't believe what I'm seeing. I'm watching, "comedians in cars", the last open interview show with jerry and Eddie Murphy, and Murphy actually looks TALLER!!
Bora said on 17/Sep/19
In the tv series called Seinfeld, he looks a way taller like 6'1" but i don't know why maybe just because of the high waist pants
Paul NS (6ft 0.5) said on 1/Sep/19
I think Seinfeld is still at least an inch taller than Murphy these days. The difference looks like nothing in the video, but the photos from the event tell a different story: Click Here Click Here Click Here

Assuming Murphy hasn't lost anything (which seems like a fair enough assumption), 5'10.5" is probably about right for Seinfeld now.
CDS said on 30/Aug/19
Watching the "comedians in cars" where jerry interviews 5'6.5" Martin short, and just can't see jerry over a flat 5'10", in fact, really starting to think he can't be any taller than some where between 5'9" and 5'10"? Rob, I really think its time for a downgrade. Remember, there was that talk show where he once claimed he was only 5'9"??
Editor Rob
He could be nearer 5ft 10 today, how much he may have lost is a question...I don't think he's as short as Eddie Murphy though.
Danimal 5'9 3/4" said on 30/Aug/19
Eddie Murphy is the same height if not slightly taller than Jerry Seinfeld today:
Click Here
CDS said on 16/Aug/19
Watching the Netflix series, comedians in cars getting coffee, with jerry interviewing 5'9" Jamie Foxx. Jerry looks barely an inch taller. I'm really beginning to think jerry's 5'11" listing is a solid, in-shoes, height, making him a good 5'10" barefoot, end of day height, 5'11" in shoes.
CDS said on 19/Jul/19
Watching the new season of the terrific Netflix series, "comedians in cars getting coffee", and jerry's first guest other than legendary Eddie Murphy, listed here as 5'9.25", and I must say, I'm a bit surprised. Jerry looks barely taller than Eddie, in fact most shots of the 2 of them, they pretty much look the same height. I honestly would've expected jerry to look a good 1.5 to 2" taller. Has jerry lost height? I thought his youthfulness, he's held up well. But watching this show, I don't see how he could be any higher than 5'9.5" to 5'10"? And Tbh, prior to now, I actually would've pegged Eddie as under this site's listing, more like 5'8.5" to 5'9"??
Caruso Victor said on 24/Jun/19
Anybody else see the similarities between Seinfeld characters and Everybody Loves Raymond cast?? Minus the kids of course.
Seinfeld is obviously Ray
Elaine is Debra
Kramer is Robert
George is Andy
Frank Seinfeld is, well, Frank Barone
Estelle Costanza is Marie Barone

Might be pushing it with Athens Estelle/Marie comparison!
c-mo said on 15/Jun/19
180cm seems accurate to me . wouldnt rule out 179cm . I am talking about peak height while on Seinfeld . today he may measure 178cm

this man is another proof of my claim that around 5'11 - 6'0 is the best height for a man . on Seinfeld his body proportions and height look very good . his height looks actually the best compared to george / kramer / newman etc. .

I love Seinfeld btw. . such a nice show of my favorite if not most favorite sitcom
179cm guy said on 8/Jun/19
Rob, mightn't a current listing of 5'10.25 be more suitable for Jerry?
He doesn't seem to edge out Bryan Cranston at the 2016 Emmy's: ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here )
The same goes in these photos of him with Chris Rock: ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here )
And here they are when Jerry has the footwear advantage: ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here )
Rob, at sixty-five I don't think that a 2cm loss for Jerry is implausible. At his peak, I wouldn't estimate him lower than a solid 5'11-11.25, but nowadays I think that he'd measure in the strong 5'10.25-10.5 range. Will you please give him the current listing of 5'10.25 Rob?
JustSomeBloke2 said on 28/Mar/19
Appears to be a tad taller than Chris Rock and slightly smaller than Larry David. 5'10.25 - 5'10.5 seems reasonable.
whatright said on 14/Feb/19

yes way, that's YOUR opinion...he looked even shorter than 5-11 listed Chapelle on here....why don't you argue with the other people on who say he's 5-9? One poster even mentioned to have met him.
179cm guy said on 25/Dec/18
Sorry Rob I meant that Jerry needed a peak height of 5'11 and a current height of 5'10.25 in the post below this one.
179cm guy said on 23/Dec/18
Rob I really do believe that Jerry needs a peak height added for 5'10.25 (178.4cm). He looks like he's the same height as Bryan Cranston who you've listed as a flat 5'10 current height (Click Here). You've said that you'd only consider adding a peak height for a celebrity if they'd lost at least a half an inch of height and Jerry looks like he's lost at least that by now at nearly sixty-five years of age.
berta said on 3/Dec/18
Rob this guy have never looked a legit 180 cm. 179 peak and little under that by now
georgewbush said on 10/Nov/18
Rob, what's his head size? Under or over 10 inches?
Editor Rob
I would say under 10 inches, but at least 9.5 range.
Joss Percy said on 2/Oct/18
No way he's 180 cm. Just look at this video with President Obama Click Here he's probably 5'10 max.
Tall Sam said on 4/Aug/18
I think after looking at him quite a bit recently in both his main TV shows I think a better listing for him peak is 5'10.75" and more 5'10.25" now. Peak he looks barely edging Bryan Cranston and can look almost towered by Michael Richards.
Garrett188 said on 21/Jul/18
Definitely needs a peak and current height listing. Can look 5'11 in 80s and 90s but looks closer to 5'10 on Comedians In Cars, plenty of guests comparisons prove this. One is with Dave Chappelle, who is 5'11 and looks about an inch taller in recent the recent episode of Comedians in Cars.
Animus said on 13/Jul/18
Rob, why doesn't he have a peak and a current height?
Editor Rob
hadn't got round to considering it yet.
ViceGonz said on 20/May/18
I bet he’s gotten shorter over the years, man is in his 60’s. Probably closer to 5’10 than 5’11
JB said on 8/May/18
6 foot Jim Gaffigan looked more than an inch taller than him.
Mike O said on 5/Mar/18
He's the type of guy who's taller than you might expect. I saw him from a distance of about 100 feet in New York for about 20-30 seconds about 10 years ago and he seemed like he was legitimately almost 6' tall, in fact he probably was 6' with shoes on. I kind of always thought of him as being very averaged height, maybe even a little short, and was surprised how he towered over some of the people he was with. Loud voice too.
Joe Joe said on 13/Jan/18
Hey Rob. Jerry has a show on Netflix called stars in cars getting coffee. In episode 1 he meets Jim Carey in episode 2 he meets Jimmy Fallon etc. Great show for having height. They do a lot of walking and talking with shots panned out far. Check it out.
Animus said on 16/Sep/17
Seinfeld gave a solid 5'11 impression back in the 90s. Today he might be 5'10½, but I would be quite surprised if he didn't measure a strong 180cm during his physical prime.

Who are these people? They go on their computers and argue over how tall I am or how tall I am not. It's like I'm just a tape measure away from either ruining or making their days. What's the deal with that?


Jug said on 6/Aug/17
Strong 5'11 at peak. Always held up pretty well next to 6'3 Richards.
Slim 182 cm said on 27/Jul/17
Another legit 5'11? I wonder what he claims.. probably 6' or 6'1
musicgeek said on 27/Jun/17
Not the full 5'11 for sure. Initially I would have guessed 5'9" for Jerry, but now I think about it I can see how 5'10.5" may be possible
S.J.H said on 15/Jun/17
5'10.25 for jerry would be acuurate than 5'11. He look half inch shorter than 5'11 Dave Chappelle on jimmy fallon show. Dave Chappelle had fraction less footwear

get the same vibe from this listing as for harrison ford. this could be one of the more wrong listings. Most listings are perfect but this seems half inch to mutch

i think this guy is 179 cm guy not o er 180

Jerry is 5'10 and michael richards is 6'2
charlie said on 5/Mar/17
I just saw comments on Steve Martins height where one guy made reference to Steve martin being on Comedians in cars with Jerry Seinfeld where Steve admits his height being 5 ft 9. So if Steve martin is 5 ft 9 as he claims Jerry has to be 5 ft 8 max. Steve stood a good 1 inch taller than Jerry. I will say Jerry Seinfeld is 5 ft 8.
berta said on 22/Feb/17
i think at best he is 5`10 3/4 but looks like a almost 180 gfuy
Hijopotamus said on 3/Feb/17
Jerry got fat, lost his hair and shrinked a little or at least that is the impression that He is turning into George...
Mike Jones said on 17/Jan/17
Looks shorter than listed 5'11" Dave Chapelle on Fallon show and Chapelle looks slouching too, needs a 0.25" downgrade
Click Here
hambubger said on 26/Dec/16
Going on the image bob posted and the show I'd say 5'10" peak, currently 5'9". 5'11" Fallon has easily two inches on him. And if you claim Fallon is 6'0" better upgrade president Trump, because Trump had 1-2" on him on recent appearance.

Jerry never looked the full 5'11" in the show - he was able to play mostly off short George and short Elaine - Kramer was often off doing his own thing.
anon said on 2/Nov/16
Peak for sure looked 5'11 on seinfeld, Nowadays is likelya solid 5'10 range guy, He looked tallish on seinfeld but most the cast were short aside from Michael Richards
5ft10guy said on 7/Sep/16
Neil patrick harris is like an inch taller then him .I wonder if he lost any height.
Paleman said on 14/Jul/16
The 5'9" claims are rubbish and you know it - the man did look 5'11" during Seinfeld years. Not sure about his current height, but I'd be very surprised if he was only a flat 5'10" today.

His hair loss is the only loss he's had making him look shorter. Always 5'10".


Nah. Absolute minimum 5'10.5" peak. I think a full 5'11" suits him well even. Isn't this guy with him supposed to be 5'10.5"? Click Here

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


I agree that he's shrunk a bit. Was 5'11" when he was doing his show. Now I think he's lost at least half an inch. Possibly even a full inch, or his posture is worse.
Dmeyer said on 26/Jan/16
today dosnt look under 5'10.25 and could have been just 5'10.75 peak so 0.5in loss at 60 for a fit guy is ok
Dmeyer said on 26/Jan/16
too much evidence he is under 5'11 today smaller than alec while jerry had a solid 0.4in more shoes , noticably shorter than 5'11.5 fallon 5'10-10.5 now peak 5'11 or 5'10.75
ElDuderino said on 23/Jan/16
Definitely below 5'11 at this point in time, it looked like Obama towered him in CICGC
Sean said on 1/Jan/16
I saw him on tv standing next to 5'10 Chris Rock, and Chris looked slightly taller.

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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Sep/15
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

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.

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!
177cmGuy said on 5/Apr/15
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"

yeah he can look 179 today, but I think 5ft 11 during most career is ok.

Scoots McGee says on 14/Sep/14
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.

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.

Steeff said on 10/Jun/14
Definitely 5'11". Because he looks taller than average, which is 5'10" in the US.
jacob said on 5/Feb/14
jerry is taller than chris rock.. justin timberlake
the dude said on 3/Feb/14
A strong 5'10" / weak 5'11" at his peak.
Frank said on 24/Dec/13
I think Jerry is 5ft 10 no more than that
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.
Kevin said on 19/May/13
He's only 5'9. I met him in St. Louis. 5'11 is way exaggerated!!!
NC (Nice Cutter) said on 1/May/13
He's a solid 6'0 guy.
Will said on 29/Apr/13
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.
5'11 barefoot said on 7/Jan/12
sienfeld has a long head in basketball this would be called wasted heaight because his big head gives him about an inch in alan..
TruebloodFan said on 6/Jan/12
Alan has to short torso for a 5'10.5 man. either he's disproportionate or he wears elevated shoes. Seinfeld has always looked 5'11 to me, though.
Silent d said on 3/Jan/12

Looks a little taller than 5'9.5-5'10 Bill Gates...I know Gate's has horrible posture so maybe that does it!
Silent d said on 25/Dec/11
In that photo above he is easily 5 foot 11. He looks 5 foot 11. In that episode where he is dating that ck blonde model and kramer asked her how tall she was. She said she was 5 foot 10 and jerry was much taller than her. She looked 5 foot 9 but jerry was still 2 inches taller.
Gil said on 15/Dec/11
He looked 1 full inch shorter than Alec Baldwin when Seinfeld appeared on 30 Rock. I would say Seinfeld is 5'10" and some change.
Silent d said on 17/Nov/11
On his show he always looked at least 5 foot 10 but i can buy 5 foot 11. I think jason alexander is 5 foot 4 and michael richards is 6 foot 3. He always looked above average to me. 5 foot 11. He was a little shorter than 187cm letterman last night.
Mathew said on 23/Aug/11
hello says on 22/Mar/11
Jerry is 1 inch shorter than 5ft 11in Larry David , so 5ft 10in

Nope. In Curb Your Enthusiasm the two look the same height just about exactly. If anything Jerry could be a 1/4" taller, but I'd say they are the same.
Toby said on 15/Aug/11
is it just me or does jerry have the proportions of a smaller man?
Voiceless dental fricative said on 17/Jun/11
ROB, thanks for the response. I asked because Cranberries noted in the height request thread that he looks more 5'8 range with Patrick Stewart who you yourself have seen Click Here
Editor Rob
I didn't add anymore of his photos beyond what I initially did 2 years ago, they are a legacy from then.
all I know is what he said himself which was 5ft 10.5, in some photos he didn't look it of course.
Voiceless dental fricative said on 17/Jun/11
ROB, do you have any confirmation on Alan Light's height of 5'10.5?
Editor Rob
he gave that height when I asked, this was a couple of years ago now.
Mike said on 2/Jun/11
@SpinQueen... My wife is 5`6 and i`m 6`0. One evening she comes up to me wearing stilettos (which were a good 4 inches or so), and she says "your not much taller than me you know". Like Adam said - women have no grasp of height what so ever.

if alan realy is 5 ft 10.5 then jerry is 5 ft 11
immoral_animal said on 19/Mar/11
He's short-armed and fairly small-framed, which gives the sense of 5'10" or so. In Seinfeld he never really seemed a legit 5'11" opposite a number of stars who's heights are verifiable, e.g. Terri Hatcher, Chiklis, etc. Certain parts of the show hint at the real Jerry's fastidious, egoistic tendencies (i.e. changing the waist size on his jeans). I would suspect that he might have heightened slightly throughout his early career, combined with always being super-conscious of his posture, in trying to create the illusion of 6 feet. Realistically, may have been 5'10.5", or even 5'10". Like Dustin Hoffman, his big head and hair give him the presence of a 6-footer.
Mathew said on 25/Jan/11
5'11", Anything under 5'10.5" is just plain stupid.
Adam said on 7/Jan/11
@SpinQueen are you crazy? There is no way Jerry in under 5'8" that is absolutely rediculous. Stick to shoes and handbags, like I have said before women have no grasp of height what so ever.
Jim said on 4/Jan/11
He looked 10cm shorter then Letterman when he was on the show the other day.
Stevehinez said on 29/Dec/10
I have a pic he took with my bro in it my bro is short only 5"5 and seinfeld looks a legitamite 5'11
letowskie said on 27/Nov/10
Seems like a 5'9" guy now, but probably 5'10" during his show in the 90s. There is pretty much exactly 5" difference between him and George, and 4-5" between him and Kramer, depending on Richards' posture at the time. So his height was pretty easy to fix during that time period.
art said on 24/Nov/10
Eric said on 13/Nov/10
Jerry is 5'9. He might be shorter today, but that's what he claimed back in the 80s.
delphonic said on 8/May/09
Solid 5' 11" barefoot height...I was on set with him today (curb your enthusiasm).
Big T said on 24/Apr/09
Ryan, you're kidding, he is obviously taller than Alan

However, next to 6' listed Keith Hernandez he looked more than 1 inch shorter to me
Ryan said on 21/Apr/09
In the picture with Alan, Seinfelds head appears to be tilted backward somewhat. Also, his hair is puffed up, which may account for an extra 1/2 inch. Based on this pic alone, Seinfeld appears to be closer to 5'10".
dani said on 4/Apr/09
modern led zep???hahahahhaha,suckallica is not even in the same category"

Your claim is ridiculous; you don't lose 1 inch at 54 unless you have a pretty horrible posture or a disease. You start losing height after you turn 60.
Hello said on 2/Apr/09
Definitely 5'11" in that picture. He might be 5'10" now since he is getting up there in age.
OliTheMan said on 30/Mar/09
he was recently on Letterman and when they stood side by side Letterman had like 4 inches on him...
Pepe said on 27/Mar/09
I agree with Dani, it is difficult to notice a 1cm difference between a 179cm and a 180cm. Jerry to me is more 179.5cm which is 5"1075 which is a really nice height for a men.
Dani said on 25/Mar/09
He looks kinda tall in his show but he gives different looks. His legs are short so he can look more like 5"9 sometimes but i'd say he's in the range 5"10.5-5"11 or 179-181cm. It's difficult to notice the difference between 179 and 180cm, probably rob and glenn could do it coz they're experts. i can't distinguish between and 180cm guy and 179cm guy.
Jay Sherman said on 5/Mar/09
5'11 looks about right.
fresno state man said on 5/Mar/09
Letterman always asks celebs there hieght for his own piece of the math he is as curious as us...anyway sienfeld is 5'10 with shoes...on the money...
Jay said on 11/Feb/09
Seinfeld is definetely 5'11 at bare minimum and probably 6'0+ with shoes. I have seen him in person and he was a tall guy. I got him up to his chin and I am 5'8. He looks tall in the show as well.
Phil said on 5/Jan/09
So what would his weight be? If he's 5'11", I would say maybe in the 160 range?
Jay said on 5/Dec/08
The listing of 5'11" is a generous measurement. He's more like 5'10", and that's with shoes.
As the following guy wrote:
I stood directly next to Jerry Seinfield last night. I'm 5'11" and he was wearing 1" heels. He is 5'10" right on.

Jerry Seinfeld was on the David Letterman show back in the mid-80s and for some reason was being interviewed by Dave in the green room. I can recall Dave asking Jerry is height for some unknown reason and Jerry saying he was 5'9. Anybody else remember this particular episode of Late Night With David Letterman Show?

He looks like 5-10. Why would he say he is 5-9 1/2 if he really is 5-11?
3 said on 23/Jun/08
Seinfeld is a funny show. I think that we can all agree that he is about 5'11", and there is no point in arguing over half inches or quarter inches. But some of you make a good point with the fact that any man close to 6'0" will claim six feet, so we could assume that Seinfeld is 5'11" exactly or rounding 5'10+" up to 5'11". Either way he has pretty good posture on his show and he looks just taller than average, standing straight a lot, so this makes him seem taller.
M.P. said on 7/May/08
Yeah, he probably is 5'11", but because he's so slim, he could easily pass for 6'1". It's funny that he seems to think that that's pretty tall, though. (on his show)
TR said on 2/May/08

Bill said on 2/May/08
There is an episode of "Seinfeld" where Jerry is only wearing socks while he is standing next to Michael Ricahrds (episode titled "Mom and Pop Store"). Quite honestly, he appears to be about 5'11 next to Richards, assuming Richards is 6'3.
glenn said on 23/Apr/08

You can't compare heights with doorways. When in Universal City, Hollywood years ago, I saw the pickup used by Gerald McRaney in the TV series and it was scaled way down to make him look taller. All Alan Ladd's movie sets were scaled down to make him look taller. It's the movies, folks!!!

I asked a journalist that met Seinfeld about his height. The journalist is 182 cm and he said Seinfled was almost as tall as he was. He said 180-81 cm.

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.
Random Person said on 7/Jun/07

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

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

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".

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.

kramer is a good 4 inches on jerry so jerry is about 180 exept if kramer is over 6 feet 3

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!
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

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 6'0½" 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 6'4½"... 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
cantstop25 said on 10/Jan/06
He proabably is a solid 5'11" he just always dates models on his show so he does not look that tall. though I must say watch the episode with the "close talker" that guy is atleast 6' and jerry is the same exact height however you can see jerry where huge heeled shoes.
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

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".

I agree, Viper. But he does seem to choose footwear sometimes with fairly tall heels.

Jay doesnt wear lifts,I dont think.

jay is about 6-1 with lifts so jerry is about 6 feet with regular shoes. that makes him the 5-11 he is.

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".

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.

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?

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!

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.

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.

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"
