    Comedy team

    Meara met ac­tor-co­me­dian Jerry Stiller in 1953, and they mar­ried in 1955, after a two-year re­la­tion­ship. Until he sug­gested it, she had never thought of doing com­edy. "Jerry started us being a com­edy team," she said. "He al­ways thought I would be a great com­edy partner." They joined the im­pro­vi­sa­tional com­pany The Com­pass Play­ers (which later be­came The Sec­ond City), and after leav­ing, formed the com­edy team of Stiller and Meara. In 1961, they were per­form­ing in night...

In 1975, she starred in her own se­ries Kate McShane on CBS, for which she was nom­i­nated for an Emmy Award, but the se­ries was can­celled after 10...

    Writing and consulting

    In 1995, Meara wrote the com­edy Af­ter-Play, which be­came an off-Broad­way production. In her later years, she por­trayed re­cur­ring roles on the tele­vi­sion shows Sex and the City (as Mary Brady) and The King of Queens (as Veron­ica Olchin).

    Meara was born, bap­tised and raised a Roman Catholic. She con­verted to Ju­daism six years after mar­ry­ing Stiller. She in­sisted that she did not con­vert at Stiller's re­quest, ex­plain­ing, "Catholi­cism was dead to me." She took her con­ver­sion se­ri­ously and stud­ied the Jew­ish faith in such depth that her Jew­ish-born hus­band quipped, "Being mar­ried to Anne has made me more Jewish." They dis­cussed how they met and their early ca­reer dur­ing a guest ap­pear­ance on the TV game s...

    Anne was born in Brooklyn, New York, the daughter of Irish immigrant parents, Mary (née Dempsey) and Edward Joseph Meara, a lawyer. Meara was raised in Roman Catholicism, and converted to Reform Judaism six years after marrying Stiller.She has long stressed that she did not convert at Stiller's request, but because "Catholicism was dead to me." She took the conversion seriously and studied the faith in such depth that her Jewish-born husband quipped, "Being married to Anne has made me more Jewish." Anne has written about her mother's death and her childhood experiences at Catholic boarding school.
