Actor and comedian Jerry Stiller has died aged 92.

Seinfeld co-hosts post tributes.

Ben Stiller broke the sad news on Monday that his father, the famous and beloved comedian Jerry Stiller had passed away, aged 92.

“I’m sad to say that my father, Jerry Stiller, passed away from natural causes,” Stiller tweeted. “He was a great dad and grandfather, and the most dedicated husband to Anne for about 62 years. He will be greatly missed. Love you Dad.”

Of course, we all know the talented Jerry Stiller as the hot-headed Frank Costanza (George's dad) on Seinfeld, and Arthur Spooner in King of Queens, but he also had an illustrious comedy career which started in the late 50's with his wife Anna Meara. They performed as a duo in Vegas and on The Ed Sullivan Show, and even released comedy records.

 He also wrote an autobiography, Married to Laughter, about his 50-plus year marriage to soulmate and comedic cohort Meara, who died in 2015.

 

 

 

Members of Seinfeld including Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, shared precious memories of Stiller.

 

 

 

Ben Stiller was so touched by the outpouring of tributes for his father, he thanked everyone in another Twitter post.
