Alec Berg          

Comedic Writer and Producer; Known for "Seinfeld" and "Silicon Valley"

Alec Berg is an American comedy writer, best known as a writer for the sitcom "Seinfeld." He also co-wrote the screenplays for the films "The Cat in the Hat," "EuroTrip" and "The Dictator." In addition, Berg is an executive producer of and directed numerous episodes of Larry David's "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

In the "Seinfeld" episode "The Face Painter," Berg's name is given to an attorney friend of Jerry's who gives Jerry some New York Rangers playoff tickets. When Jerry fails to thank Berg's character for the tickets, Berg does not offer Jerry tickets for another game that week. In that episode, Jerry jokes that Berg has a great "John Houseman name," pronouncing it jokingly in a Houseman accent.

In the Season 8 Curb Your Enthusiasm episode "The Divorce," Larry David fires his divorce attorney Andrew Berg (played by Paul F. Thompkins) after he finds out that Berg is not Jewish, but instead is a Catholic of Swedish heritage. The character was based on Alec Berg.
