Long before Jerry Stiller, 83, starred as Frank Costanza on Seinfeld, he and Meara, 80, enjoyed great success as a comedy double act in the '60s and '70s, appearing frequently on The Ed Sullian Show. The couple, who wed in 1954, also starred in the short-lived 1986 sitcom The Stiller and Meara Show.
