He used to perform in theatres and plays, and he was also heavily involved in comedy.

Career and Awards

Michael Richards is a well-known television personality and retired comedian who began his career in 1979. He did, however, participate in shows and theatre before 1979. But it was Billy Crystal’s First cable TV special that gave him his big break that year. Later, he began appearing on ABC’s Fridays, where he quickly became a regular.

He was cast as Cosmo Kramer in the NBC television series ‘Seinfeld,’ created by fellow Friday’s cast member Larry David and comedian Jerry Seinfeld, in 1989. The series ended its nine-year run at the top of the Nielsen ratings in 1998. Kramer, the show’s eponymous character’s neighbour, is usually referred to by his last name only in the setting of Seinfeld. Richards received more Emmy nominations than any other Seinfeld cast member. In 1993, 1994, and 1997, he was named Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

The Michael Richards Show, for which the actor was a co-writer and co-executive producer, was conceived as a comedy/mystery starring Richards as a bumbling private investigator. Following the conclusion of Seinfeld, Richards began work on a new series for NBC in 2000, his first major project since the end of Seinfeld.

 Peronal life Michael Richard


According to public records, Michael paid $525,000 for a home in Studio City, California in 1992. He sold the house for $810,000 in 1998, just a few months after Seinfeld ended. Michael paid $1.75 million for a 6,000-square-foot home in Los Angeles’ Pacific Palisades neighbourhood in 1996. Michael claims he was biking around the neighbourhood one day when he fell in love with the house. He scribbled his name and phone number on a scrap of paper because there was a for sale sign out front. The people who were leasing the house at the time returned his call and gave him the owner’s phone number. As it turned out, one of the renters knew Michael’s agent and called to see if the real Michael Richards had truly left his name and phone number in their mailbox with an offer to buy the house. The agent agreed.

Michael toured the house with the owner and made an offer that was accepted on the spot. He paid in cash. The home, designed by famed African American architect Paul Williams in the 1920s, has full views of the Pacific Ocean from nearly every room. The house is now worth between $8 and $10 million.

Michael grew up a huge fan of comedian Red Skelton. As a child, he would have his mother drop him off in Bel-Air in front of what he thought was Red’s house (based on a Star Map). Red and Michael became friends years later. When Red died, Michael purchased his entire rare book collection, which is now housed in his own library.
