Jerry Stiller was interviewed for three-and-a-half hours in Los Angeles, CA, consisting of two parts: over one hour with wife and comedy partner Anne Meara, and over two hours alone. Stiller and Meara described how they met as working actors in New York City. They talked about getting together as an act and their many appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show. They described their comedy routines and the interaction that they had with Ed Sullivan himself. Stiller talked about his notable work in such long form productions as Seize the Day. He then spoke in detail about the role for which he is most associated, "Frank Costanza" on Seinfeld, as well as his regular appearance as "Arthur Spooner" on The King of Queens. For these series he gave his impressions of working with the regular cast members and for Seinfeld he talked about such notable epsiodes as "The Doorman," "The Fusilli Jerry," and "The Strike."
