Ben Stiller’s father, Jerry Stiller, who worked in the entertainment business for many years also died. Following his death, Jerry Seinfeld said that when Jerry worked on Seinfeld, they never gave him any notes on what to change about his performance.
In fact, the way he went about it was completely different from how they envisioned it, but he pulled it off so well that they decided it was best not to change it.
Jerry died at the age of 92, and he was commemorated by a number of celebrities and actors in the industry, including his Seinfeld co-star, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who said on her Twitter account that nobody ever stopped laughing while working with Jerry.
His own son, as well, Ben Stiller, paid tribute to the actor on his social media. It’s clear the comedy world lost two of its biggest stars this year.
