After decades of laughter, the Brooklyn native has given us years of gut-busting humor ranging from roles as Frank Costanza on Seinfeld to Arthur Spooner on The King of Queens. Jerry’s first real glimpse of stardom began in the 1960s when Stiller and wife Anne Meara appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show, the dynamic duo engaged audiences across the nation. Anne and Jerry faced controversy early in their careers, as an ethnically mixed couple, but their talent spoke wonders leaving all predispositions about their partnership in the dust. Anne sadly passed away in 2015. Jerry leaves behind his son Ben and daughter Amy, who carry on the family business, making the Stillers one of the most successful dynasties in modern history. We are proud to forever recognize Jerry Stiller in the Comedy Hall of Fame.
