Seinfeld star Jason Alexander has joined the outpouring of tributes for the late actor Jerry Stiller, who has died at the age of 92 from natural causes. He ended the post by saying, "I love you". By the 1960s, they had become a popular comedy duo on USA television and appeared 36 times on The Ed Sullivan Show (1948 to 1971).

Louis-Dreyfus said Stiller, the dad of actor Ben Stiller, would look to the sky while on camera when he had trouble remembering his lines because he was nervous - and the gesture only added to his character's hilarity. He made me laugh when I was a child and every day I was with him.

His character's most notorious contribution might be the creation of Festivus, an alternate holiday to Christmas that is celebrated on December 23.

Meara died in 2015 and Jerry detailed their marriage and comedic partnership in his 2000 memoir, Married to Laughter: A Love Story Featuring Anne Meara. Jason Alexander, who played his son George on Seinfeld, responded to the "sad news". Long before Stiller became known for his appearances on the likes of Seinfeld and The King of Queens, Stiller had already demonstrated an ability to do drama, appearing in a supporting role as Police Lt. Rico Patrone in classics 1970s thriller The Taking of Pelham One Two Three.
