This guy was by far the funniest character on Seinfeld. The episode where he was a cook in the korean war. Omg!

Along with Kramer the funniest thing on Seinfeld, at its best one of the funniest shows ever, always was Frank and Estelle. That's where George came from, all right... and Frank wouldn't have been Frank if Jerry Stiller hadn't played him.

And Zoolander, for me one of the funniest movies ever made, put me on the floor first time I saw it. And he had a good life with his (real life) wife too. Well done, Jerry Stiller.

Jerry Stiller as Frank Costanza was/is one of the funniest things ever, real comedy gold. In his honour I think I'll abandon work this morning and watch clips on Youtube.

RIP funny man and thanks for all the laughs.

I got lost in a YouTube Seinfeld hole myself for a while this morning.

I never knew he was Ben Stiller's dad.

RIP to a guy who brought a lot of laughs.

Yes, RIP. He was featured in short video films between songs during RUSH concerts, along with South Park and Bob + Doug Mackenzie. One of a kind.

Jerry Stiller and Jason Alexander owned that show.

RIP, Mr Stiller.

Was, no kidding, watching "The Serenity Now" on one of my box sets of DVDs in the background while working at home, when I saw the news of this. I agree that he was one of the funniest things about Seinfeld, and a legend in general. On top of all that, he lived to be 92, which is not bad. RIP.

I was already long in Japan when Seinfeld started and only ever saw maybe 4 or 5 episodes when on trips home, with no memory of whether Stiller appeared in those particular ones. But I certainly remember enjoying Stiller and Meara on the Ed Sullivan Show as a child.

Serenity now! Insanity later, and stop short when necessary!

Rest in peace, Mr. Stiller.

I think my favorite episode with him was definitely a Festivus for the rest of us! RIP
