Spike Feresten is the host of Esquire Network’s Car Matchmaker now entering its second season. Spike calls upon his years as an automotive expert to match the right car with the show’s guest. His career as a television comic writer is decades long. He’s earned multiple Emmy nominations and he wrote for David Letterman on Late Night. Spike also wrote for the groundbreaking sitcom Seinfeld where he became Supervising Producer and garnered three additional Emmy nominations, one for the famous Soup Nazi episode. He’s hosted his own late night series, Talkshow with Spike Feresten, and he’s known as an expert in the automotive world. Spike continues to write and work in television and movies and he’s always looking for that perfect car.
“There are no rules.”
Spike’s father passed from cancer and that same month his TV show was canceled due to changes in management at Fox.
Listen to a hilarious story about Spike being in college, acting up, getting kicked out of his dorm, and realizing he needed to find his way to network television, meeting a girl in a bar and landing an internship with David Letterman. You can’t make this stuff up!
