The Family that Laughs Together

Whether by nature or nurture, Ben Stiller was fated to be funny. His parents, Anne Meara and Jerry Stiller, are one of the great comedy teams. The two met in the 50s (her, a not-so-good Irish catholic girl; him, a Jewish boy up to no good). They played with various improv groups before striking off as a pair under the obvious name “Stiller and Meara,” appearing both live and on TV variety shows. As an actual married couple, they drew from day-to-day life for their jabs and jokes. While the team disbanded, both found steady work on comedy shows (she on “Archie Bunker’s Place” and “Sex and the City,” he on “Seinfeld” and “The King of Queens”). The two (along with their daughter Amy) often show up in their son’s many film projects.
