“THE SOUP NAZI” FROM SEINFELD
Larry Thomas aka “The Soup Nazi” from Seinfeld, one of the most memorable TV characters of all time, is coming to the West Coast Women’s Show! Mark your calendars and don’t miss your chance to be served soup by The Soup Nazi. And, as Jerry said, “Just follow the ordering procedure and you will be fine.“
Larry Thomas is an actor most recognized for his Emmy nominated performance as “The Soup Nazi” from Seinfeld. Larry has been an actor for forty years and is a veteran of dozens of Films, TV shows and hundreds of theatre performances. Recently Larry appeared in the film, 108 Stitches a baseball film with Bruce Davison, The Tesla Effect, A Tex Murphy Adventure (a live action video game) and was seen on Arrested Development, Hot Properties, Threshold, Scrubs and a Lexus commercial as a crazed pre-Bugsy visionary selling the idea of Vegas. As far as theatre goes, Larry completed a forty-five city, one hundred and forty show production of Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple-Female Version starring Barbara Eden. Also the author of “Confessions of a Soup Nazi; an Adventure in Acting and Cooking,” a 398 page acting career memoir/cook book with 52 of Larry’s own recipes. Most recently Larry co-wrote and co-directed and acted in Dads! the sitcom pilot currently in post production.
Born in Brooklyn, NY Larry has been many things including bailbondsman, bartender and brain surgeon (well not really brain surgeon but it rounded out the three b’s. Actually you can add janitor to that list, just as important in some circles, let’s face it). A father and mortgage payer, Larry is grateful for his family and career.
Larry grew up dreaming of being on the big or small screen. As an Olympic gold medalist in the insomnia-athalon Larry watched a lot of all night TV. Major comedy influences were W.C. Fields, The Three Stooges and Laurel and Hardy. Also getting lost in those great golden era of Hollywood films wishing he could be Clark Gable, Cary Grant, Spencer Tracy, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra all rolled in to one. Let’s also not forget the constant daydreaming of being up there on stage with The Beatles and other favorite rock bands (it had to be daydreaming because of the insomnia). Not having any entertainment types in the family Larry kept these fantasies to himself until at the age of twenty-one, while majoring in journalism in jr. college, Larry met a girl (a tower of jello when it came to women). Finding himself striking out he asked her what classes she was taking. The answer was theatre classes. Enrolling in a bunch of theatre classes in a pitiful attempt to get a date Larry fell in love with acting and the rest as they say is….
