| Frank Costanza Is Georges Father. He invented his own Holiday many Christmas's ago.
He went to buy a doll for George. There was only one doll left and when he reached for it, so did another man.
After struggling for the doll, he thought there could be another way. The doll was destroyed, but out of that,
a new holiday was born. It was called Festivus. A Festivus for the rest-of-us.
Hobbies include listening to Latin music on vinyl records and collecting issues of TV Guide. He was co-creator of the "Bro" (also known as the "manserie") with Cosmo Kramer.
Frank Costanza - a quirky man with a big temper. A famous phrase of his is "do you want a piece of me."
Real Name: Jerry Stiller
Born: 8. June 1927, New York, USA
Spouse: Anna Meara (1954 - present) 2 children
Biography: As the short, hypertensive male counterpart of the stellar husband-and-wife comedy team "Stiller & Meara," Jerry Stiller and wife Anne Meara were on top of the comedy game in the 1960s, a steady and hilarious presence on TV variety, notably "The Ed Sullivan Show" (36 times). The New York-born Stiller was, in the beginning, a drama major at the University of Syracuse. Though he played rather uneducated, blue-collar sorts for most his career, he received a Bachelor of Science in Speech and Drama before making his 1951 acting debut on stage with Burgess Meredith in "The Silver Whistle." While a member of the improvisational team The Compass Players (the company later evolved into the well-known Second City troupe), he met Anne. They married in 1954 and began touring together on the national club circuit while giving new and inventive meaning to the term spousal comedy. After well over a decade of fame together, they decided to pursue individual successes and both found it. A Broadway favorite in such shows as "Hurlyburly," "The Ritz" (he later recreated his role on film), "The Golden Apple," "Three Men on a Horse," "What's Wrong with This Picture," and "The Three Sisters," Stiller even appeared with 'Kevin' Kline' and Blythe Danner as Dogberry in Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" in 1988. Musicals were not out of his range either as he created the role of Launce in "Two Gentlemen of Verona" and co-starred as Nathan Detroit in a production of "Guys and Dolls." Although he kept afloat on TV as a 70s regular on "The Paul Lynde Show" (1972) and "Joe and Sons" (1975), he had some rocky years and Anne's pilot fizzled when they reunited for a possible "Stiller & Meara" sitcom. Then came eight seasons as Frank Costanza and his character star was reborn. Nominated for a 1997 Emmy Award and the recipient of the 1998 American Comedy Award, Stiller found back-to-back sitcom hits with "The King of Queens" (1998) as the irascible Arthur Spooner. He has also appeared in a number of his successful son, Ben Stiller's comedy pictures including _Heavy Weights (1995) and Zoolander (2001). Daughter Amy Stiller is also a thriving actress. He and Anne have written, performed and produced award-winning radio commercials together for such products as Blue Nun Wine, United Van Lines and Amalgamated Bank, among others. His autobiography "Married to Laughter" came out in 2000.
