Jerry Stiller Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Gerald Isaac “Jerry” Stiller was born on 8 June 1927, in Brooklyn, New York City USA into a Jewish family, with his mother’s ancestors from Poland, and father’s from the Spanish region of Galicia, and is an actor who, to the masses, his most prominent work has been in the NBC sitcom ‘Sienfeld’ in which he depicted the role of ‘Frank Costanza’. However, his wife is the noted comedienne Anne Meara, and his son the Hollywood actor Ben Stiller.

So just how rich is Jerry Stiller? Sources estimate that Jerry has a net worth of over $13 million, his long- spanned career as an actor/comedian since the early ’50s playing the main role behind his wealth.

Stiller attended Seward Park High School in New York, but started working as a stage performer from the very early age of ten! He graduated with a major in speech and drama from the University of Syracuse in 1950, then joined the touring company of Peter Pan. Under the eye of director Billy Barnes, Stiller revealed his skills in the business of making people laugh, primarily in the classics and including Shakespearean creations; his off-Broadway debut was made in 1953 in a production of ‘Coriolanus’. Eventually he was paying homage to the Baird of Avon by being involved in world famous troupes at the Shakespeare festival. Stiller became one of the most versatile actors of his time.

At this time Jerry Stiller met his future wife and professional partner Anna Meara, and were paired often over the next two decades. In the early 70s, Stiller and Meara were engaged in a sitcom called “The Paul Lynde Show”, but it was not a success, and soon dropped from show time. Despite that failure, Jerry took part in a film called “Joe and Sons”. Afterward they got himselves into another show called “Archie Bunker’s Place”, which added considerably  to their reputation as comedians, and the duo didn’t have to look back after that.

Jerry also got himself into a team with his son, famous-to-be comedian Ben Stiller in projects like “Zoolander” and “Heavyweights”. Later the father-son duo continued leaving their footprints through “Hot Pursuit” and “The Heartbreak Kid”. These brought them huge success and bulked up Jerry’s bank account. His only daughter Amy Stiller has also followed her parents and brother’s footstep, emerging as a decent comedian. It is an easy prediction that TV shows: “The King of Queens”, in which he played the role of ‘Arthur Spooner’, and “Seinfeld” in the mid-90s were the main driving force behind his booming net worth. They also brought him significant popularity with audiences.

During late 90s, Jerry Stiller started exploring new possibilities by taking part in various TV commercials, the most remarkable of which is the Nike commercial in which he played the role of a coach of the Green Bay Packers American football team. In the field of motion pictures, this talented actor made his mark through “Zoolander” and “Secret of the Andes”.

The year 2007 was a landmark for both the comedian and his wife as they received the honor of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, high recognition of their contribution to the entertainment industry over many years.

In addition to acting, Jerry was involved in author Allen Salkin’s book “Festivus: The Holiday for the Rest of Us”, as he wrote the introduction.

When it comes to personal life, Jerry and Anna Meara were marries from 1953 until her passing in 2015 – they had the previously mentioned son and daughter, so can boast a family of successful actors. He is also known as a  strong supporter of animal rights.

#Quote
1 [on meeting Anne Meara, his future wife] She seemed to sense I had no money, so she just ordered coffee. Then she took all the silverware. I picked up her cheque for ten cents and thought, 'This is a girl I'd like to hang out with'.
2 My father and mother - I figured if I could make them laugh, they'd stop fighting. I stole all their material.
3 Some of the routines come back very easily. We do it off the top of our heads.
4 I ask myself why I do it. Maybe it's to prove I'm still around. It takes a lot out of my body. I'm not an NBA player anymore. At my age, very few people can handle it.
5 I loved the idea of touching base with an audience.
6 I shave without using shaving cream.
7 I've been around the block a lot and I've had a merry trail for 55 years.
8 It can make you sad to look at pictures from your youth. So there's a trick to it. The trick is not to look at the later pictures.
9 Money is sensual.
10 We managed to hang in there. Today when people get married there's a tendency to run away when things get tough. There is a lot of strength in hanging together.
11 Anne hated the idea of putting me down in front of the audience.
12 Anne is very forgiving. She doesn't care about money, being rich, or clothes. We never argued about finances.
13 Being on a sitcom stops me from getting Alzheimer's.
14 Creative comedy is like growing geraniums in a mine field.
15 During the Great Depression, when people laughed their worries disappeared. Audiences loved these funny men. I decided to become one.
16 Hollywood never knew there was a Vietnam War until they made the movie.
17 I don't think my judgment is that good. I don't know what is funny.
18 Never go for the punch line. There might be something funnier on the way.
19 The worst thing in this business is to be thought of as a no-talent.

#Trademark
1 Playing loud, neurotic/psychotic characters with borderline psychopatic/sociopathic features in comedies.
2 Distinctive halting delivery of lines
3 Short stature
4 Thick New York accent
