You know him from his breakout role as Hank Kingsley from The Larry Sanders Show, as George Bluth on Arrested Development, and his Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning performance as Maura Pfefferman on Transparent. For a Broadway star and an accomplished television and screen actor whose performances have been entertaining audiences for more than four decades, the question remains: who is Jeffrey Tambor?
In his new memoir, Are You Anybody?, Tambor looks back at the key moments in his life that taught him about creativity, play, pain, and fear. The son of Russian and Hungarian Jewish parents, Tambor grew up in San Francisco a husky kid with a lisp who suffered in his “otherness” and found salvation in the theater.
Tambor shares the triumph of landing his first Broadway role, his humbling experiences in commercial work, and the lessons he’s learned from renowned actors and unexpected teachers. He invites you behind the scenes of his television shows, but he doesn’t leave out the pit stops he made at addiction, Scientology, and what it feels like to get fourth billing after Sylvia the Seal on The Love Boat.
Tambor answers the question of “Are you anybody?” with a promise that success doesn’t mean perfection and failure most definitely is an option. In conversation with Emily Yoffe, a contributing editor to The Atlantic and the former “Dear Prudence” advice columnist for Slate.
