actor, comedian, writer
Birthplace: Long Beach, New York
Versatile comedic performer who has enjoyed such hits as the angst-ridden slapstick movie City Slickers (1991) and the romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally (1989). Crystal also appeared in Deconstructing Harry (1997) and Analyze This (1999). One of many comedians to make the jump from TV's Saturday Night Live to the big screen, Crystal's other TV appearances have ranged from his hosting the Academy Awards show to appearing as perhaps the first gay character on television, Jodie Dallas, in the quirky spoof, Soap (1977).
