Jerry Seinfeld Height

"Keep your head up in failure and your head down in success."

~ Jerry Seinfeld

Great Comedian, Jerry Seinfeld is perhaps best known for playing a semi-fictionalized version of himself in the sitcom "Seinfeld", which happens to become one of the most acclaimed and popular American sitcoms of all time.

Jerry Seinfeld's real height is one of the great mysteries of the world -- along with the height of Tom Cruise (which we are proud to say -- we solved last year).

Jerry once referred to himself as the "tall one" on his show -- and we don't think he was joking around.

It is weird that Jerry actually looks tall if you care to look at him carefully -- when you least expect him to be.

It is perhaps his relatively strange body proportions that don't help -- with a large head, a large upper body, short legs, t-rex arms, etc. Perhaps that's why people think that he is some kind of dwarf -- but he clearly isn't.

Looking at Jerry next to guys like Eddie Murphy (5'9¼"), Chris Rock (5'10"), Jamie Foxx (5'9"), Alec Baldwin (5'11½"), Barack Obama (6'1"), Jimmy Fallon (5'11½"), we think he is no more than 5'9½" today.

Though from what we have seen of him, we think Jerry certainly was a bit taller in his prime than now close to his seventies.

The height of Jerry Seinfeld is

5'9½" or 176 cm

Height in his prime was 5'11"
