Born: 13th September 1959, Newark, New Jersey, U.S.
MAD veterans Mort Drucker and Stan Hart teamed up to send-up Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, and the rest of the Seinfeld cast in the five-page parody "Swine-Filled," which originally ran in MAD #327 (June '94).
Drew Friedman expertly caricatured Seinfeld regulars Michael Richards, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jerry Seinfeld in this contribution to the first-ever MAD 20 Dumbest list. Co-written by Mike Snider and Scott Maiko, "Seinfeld By The Numbers" originally ran in MAD #377 (January '99).
No idea Jason Alexander was so tightly wound in the early 2000s, and yet, when MAD approached him to contribute to "What Drives You MAD?" for issue #400 (December '00), he came up with nine different, very elaborate gripes. Topping the list (surprise, surprise): "Being called 'George.' It's easy: George = fictional, Jason = real." "What Drives You MAD?" was illustrated by John Kascht.
Writer Scott Maiko's prediction proved sadly true, as Jason Alexander's CBS sitcom Listen Up was cancelled after one season. Hermann Mejia provided the artwork for this portion of the first edition of "MAD's Fall TV Preview," which ran in MAD #446 (October '04).
Oddly, Jason Alexander's sitcom Listen Up (see previous image) was still running by the time MAD ran "The Seinfeld Curse Collection" in The Fundalini Pages of issue #452 (April '05). Of the three cast members pictured here, only Julia Louis-Dreyfus seems to have broken the curse, as she just picked up her eighth Emmy (and her fifth in a row for her HBO series Veep).
