Jeffrey Todd "Jeff" Garlin (born June 5, 1962) is an American comedian, actor, producer, voice artist, director, writer, podcast host and author. He has acted in many television shows and some movies, is an expert in magic, and is known for his role as Jeff Greene on the HBO show Curb Your Enthusiasm, for which he was nominated for seven Emmys in his role as Executive Producer, and two wins for Producing from the PGAs. He currently stars in the ABC sitcom The Goldbergs.
Garlin married Marla Beth Garlin (née Cahan) in 1994. They have two sons: James (b. 1996) and Duke (b. 2000). They live in Los Angeles and Chicago. Garlin is a Chicago Cubs fan. His favorite comic is Jack Benny.
Garlin is a practitioner of transcendental meditation, which he does twice a day. He says that it has helped him with the symptoms of ADD.
Garlin had surgery in Oklahoma City when he was in his late 20s to correct Wolff–Parkinson–White syndrome, a heart condition, an extra pathway in the heart that result in tachycardia. Garlin said he was an early recipient (#72) of the surgery, which millions of people have now had done. Before Curb Your Enthusiasm filming began in 1999 he had a stroke, when he was 37 years old. During the early episodes of the first season he had noticeably slurred speech, although his speech later improved. He also has type II diabetes, which he controls with diet and exercise.
Garlin has written about his issues with food and has discussed his weight issues publicly. Garlin said: "I think people look at fat people as having a lack of willpower, when willpower has nothing to do with it. I didn’t change my life until I approached everything like an addict. I haven’t had sweets in almost three years because I know if I have one cookie, just like if an alcoholic has his first drink, I’m off to the races and I’m back eating sugar again."
