'90s TV staple Mad About You helped Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser make their mark on the small screen. For nearly a decade, the show held its own with other famous sitcoms like Friends, Fraiser and Seinfeld, and grabbed multiple Golden Globe awards. Although Reiser is best known for his role as Paul Buchman, he continues to gain accolades as an actor, writer, musician, and standup comedian. His first book, Babyhood—a funny, realistic view on being a new father—even earned him the top spot on the New York Times bestseller list. So, it's worth seeing the seasoned comedic actor-writer perform his standup live at the Irvine Improv this week, even if you’re only going because you dream of a Mad About You reunion.
