2020 is not playing nice. Every other day it’s a tragedy or something that’s simply mind boggling. Jerry Stiller, is the father of comedian Ben Stiller. Jerry was best known for his role as Frank Costanza in the show “Seinfeld” and about a decade later, as Arthur Spooner in the sitcom, “The King of Queens.”

Jerry Stiller knew he wanted to pursue comedy early in life. He was inspired by another native New Yorker, Eddie Cantor.

Stiller attended Syracuse University where he studied Drama. This is what gave him the stepping stone to his acting career. He has had many roles since 1950’s and will be greatly missed!
