CareerEdit

Stoller had worked as a stand-up comedian in nightclubs since the early 1980s at the time of his first television appearance, in 1987, when he appeared on Stand-Up America and later on The Young Comedians Special alongside six other comedians.

He is best known for his frequent appearances as Gerard on the CBS sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, Mr. Lowe in Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide and as Sheldon Singer, the son of Harold Gould's deli-owning character, on the short-lived sitcom Singer & Sons. He has also made guest appearances on several other TV series. He wrote two episodes of Seinfeld ("The Soup" and the Kramer/chimpanzee subplot of "The Face Painter"). He also appeared as Fred in the episode "The Secret Code".

Stoller is also known as the voices of Stanley in the Open Season franchise, Rusty the Wrench on Handy Manny, Fred the Squirrel in The Penguins of Madagascar, and Steve Tree in Oswald.

In 2012, Stoller published a successful e-book titled My Seinfeld Year, in which he chronicled his experiences after being hired as a new staff writer. He has since released a book titled Maybe We'll Have You Back: The Life of a Perennial TV Guest Star, and a second e-book, Five Minutes to Kill: How the HBO Young Comedians Special Changed the Lives of 1989’s Funniest Comics, in 2017.
