Paymer was born in Oceanside, New York to Sylvia, a travel agent, and Marvin Paymer, a pianist and musical director who originally worked in the scrap metal business. The two divorced in 1973.

Paymer's family is Jewish; his mother was born in Belgium and left for the United States because of the Nazi occupation.
