Getting a Break
Born on October 6, 1960, in Staten Island, New York, Jeff Trachta’s age is 56. He is the son of a Sears television salesman and, always finding something funny in everything, has often remarked: “Dad sold TVs for a living but never lived long enough to see me on one.” Trachta’s parents were against him going into show business as a career, but he felt impelled to do so.
