Top 10 Fun Facts
- Home is where the hair is: Seth's production company "Fuzzy Door" gets its name from his digs while attending the Rhode Island School of Design - the front door was completely covered in fur.
- There's old school, and then there's old school: Seth received voice training from a 90-year-old couple who include Frank Sinatra among their more prestigious clientele.
- Okay, and then there's reeeeally old school: Seth's ancestors William and Mary Brewster came to America aboard the Mayflower.
- Qualified to tickle your funny bone AND your ivories: Seth is a skilled pianist (and he's probably made plenty of "pianist" jokes in his day).
- Trekkie alert: Seth is a huge fan of Star Trek, and actually got to appear as Ensign Rivers on Star Trek: Enterprise. Fame is an all-access pass, kids.
- Adding to his Trekkie street cred, Seth gets to claim he's related to Lt. Tasha Yar. Yep, Denise Crosby of Star Trek: The Next Generation fame is Seth's distant cousin (this also means Seth is related to Bing Crosby).
- More cousins than he knows what to do with: Seth also has a cousin named Tim Mercer, who has a pop punk band in Brooklyn, New York.
- Go Lions! Seth graduated from Kent School, a prep school in Connecticut that also counts Ted Danson, Treat Williams and Peter Farrelly among their talented alumnae.
- Apparently Seth didn't leave the best impression on Kent School's headmaster, who publicly criticized his "low brand of humor."
- Close call: Seth had a ticket to board the first plane used in the 9/11 attacks, but missed his flight by one minute.
