Jerry, Anne and Ben Stiller Attempt Charades on 'Late Night' (VIDEO)

Jerry Stiller Plays Charades on 'Late Night'Jimmy Fallon must've thought the Stiller family would ace a game of charades on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC). Jerry Stiller and wife Anne Meara could use their comedy and improv skills against Fallon and son Ben Stiller, actors/funnymen in their own right.

But Jerry abandoned the main element of charades: acting. For 'It's a Wonderful Life,' he tackled the first word by saying, "It starts with a--" and creating an "i" with his arms, then motioning a "t" and then drawing the outline of an "s" with his finger. "I'm giving you three letters," he told his wife. Fallon burst out laughing. Time ran out before Jerry could, well, spell out the other words. "I've made a living from being a nitwit," he said, unfazed.

Jerry very talented...wonderful on Seinfeld and King of Queens...he was so very scary though in an episode of Outer Limits (I believe it was) as a radio DJ.

I love Jerry Stiller! He doesn't even have to speak a word, his facial expressions crack me up! I've loved him since the first time I saw him in the movie Hairspray. He was also perfect on The King of Queens! Wonderful actor and very funny!

I thought that show was hialrious. It was old slapstick comedy at its best. Ann and Jerry were hysterical and it played itself perfectly.

I thought they were great, so funny and cute. They get better with age. I grew up watching them and I hope they are around for years to come.

I love jerry, Anne and Ben, their all great people, that are also as funny as anyone can be.
All these years Jerry and his wife, has been in hollywood, and never heard of one bad thing about any of them. Together they had Ben, and he is as good of an actor as his parents. Its obvious they taught him well.
I wish them all the very best in life, they do deserve it.

I love them too - unfortunately another clip I will not see - due to pausing the advertisement being shoved down my throat.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall in their house at a holiday dinner. Must be fun.
