The Comedian dies a natural death, which was informed by his son through a tweet.
His son tweeted, “I’m sad to say that my father, Jerry Stiller, passed away from natural causes. He was a great dad-papa and grandfather, and the most dedicated husband to Anne for about 62 years. He will be greatly missed. Love you, Dad -Ben Stiller”.
American comedian Jerry Stiller started his career opposite to his wife Anne Meara in 1950 and appeared again four decades later as the emotionally nervous Frank Costanza on the smash television show “Seinfield”.
Jerry Stiller is well known for his roles in long-running comedy series “Seinfield” and “The King of Queens”.
He also wrote an autobiography about his 50-plus year marriage to his soul mate and comedic companion Meara named “Married to laughter”.
The couple had worked together in many films, stage, and television productions. The duo has also written and performed many radio commercials, which raised the sales of the products, out of which the most memorable series of bits was for the famous wine called Blue Nun.
His life and career took off after he met Meara, they were seemingly mismatched pair – he was short Israelite guy from Brooklyn. And she was tall, Irish Catholic from Island suburbs. Tey shared immediate onstage chemistry, too.
