I've been obsessed with Seinfeld for so long, going back to my childhood, long before I even understood much of the humor.
Jerry Stiller's Frank Costanza was such an essential and beloved ancillary character. Virtually every scene he graced is amazing.
He will be missed. RIP. pic.twitter.com/GVXQ7xIQhx— Colin Moriarty (@notaxation) May 11, 2020

Jerry Stiller made me laugh at a time I needed it most and for that, I am forever grateful for the comfort. But I also really gutted over his loss. That guy was a comedy giant among the greats and will be deeply missed. RIP. #Seinfeld #RIPJerryStiller pic.twitter.com/HriNyA5thF— Tania Hussain (@westlifebunny) May 11, 2020
RIP the great #JerryStiller. Thanks to you and Anne Meara for the Blue Nun commercials, and for Frank Costanza. Mr. Stiller used to belong to my gym and whenever he opened his mouth, even to say, "Hi," I laughed. Apparently, he had that effect on others... https://t.co/Q3kCX1qqcm— James Martin, SJ (@JamesMartinSJ) May 11, 2020
