Bio

Michael Richards is an American comedian and actor best known for his role as the eccentric Cosmo Kramer on the television show Seinfeld from 1989-1998, a role which earned him three Emmy Awards.

Richards began his career as a stand up comedian, first stepping into a national spotlight when he was featured on Billy Crystal's first cable TV special. He went on to become a series regular on ABC's Fridays.

Prior to Seinfeld, he made numerous guest appearances on a variety of television shows including Cheers, Night Court, Miami Vice and St. Elsewhere.

His film credits include So I Married an Axe Murderer, Problem Child, and UHF.

After Seinfield, Richards starred in his own sitcom, The Michael Richards Show, which lasted less than one season. After his series was canceled, he returned to his roots in stand up comedy.

In November 2006, controversy arose concerning racial epithets Richards shouted at black hecklers during a live comedy show. He apologised for his statements a few days after the show.

Richards is also a producer, writer, Master Mason, Vietnam era veteran, and father of one.
