If you’re under fifty five you know Anne Meara as Miranda’s mother-in-law on Sex and the City or as Ben Stiller’s mother, but if you’re old or like old comedy, then you know Meara as one-half of Stiller & Meara with her husband, Jerry Stiller (Arthur on King of Queens).

This is a sad one. Meara may not have had the comedic talent of Joan Rivers or Carol Burnett, but she was certainly a comedic talent and hopefully her underrated performances will soon be posthumously be re-evaluated by the comedy community.

Meara was 85.
