Bio

Jeff Garlin is an American actor best known for his role as Jeff Greene, Larry David's manager, on the television comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm, from 2000-2011.

He also has a starring role as Murray Goldberg, who is constantly and hilariously struggling to stay calm, is triggered by a pin drop and embodies the role of "dad" with no shame, in the television sitcom The Goldbergs.

Garlin's talent encompasses writing, producing, directing, acting and performing stand-up comedy. He is best known as Larry David's manager on the critically acclaimed HBO comedy, Curb Your Enthusiasm, for which he is also an executive producer.

In 2007 Garlin adapted his solo stage show I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With into an independent film. It premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival to critical acclaim and was a successful independent release for IFC.

His second feature as writer, director and star, dealin' with idiots, was released by IFC in July 2013. He's also an executive producer on the documentary Finding Vivian Maier.

Garlin has extensive feature acting credits, including Disney-Pixar's Academy Award-winning films WALL-E (The Captain) and Toy Story 3 (Buttercup the Unicorn).

In 2012 he released a book, Curbing It (Simon & Schuster), in which he shares his eye-opening journey to reduce his waistline and his carbon footprint during the production of the seventh season of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Garlin hosts a live show at the Largo theatre in Los Angeles entitled "By the Way - In Conversation with Jeff Garlin" that has become a popular podcast. Guests have included Larry David, Conan O'Brien, Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, J.J. Abrams, Lena Dunham, Michael Moore, Jeff Tweedy and Judd Apatow among others.

Garlin lives in Los Angeles and Chicago with his wife and two sons. His hobbies include taking naps.
