RIP Len Lesser aka Seinfeld’s Uncle Leo

Len Lesser passed away today at the age of 88. He was perhaps best known for playing Jerry Seinfeld’s Uncle Leo in 15 episodes of his eponymous sitcom. But that’s not all, Lesser enjoyed a career on Television that started in 1949 on an episode of Studio One called Two Sharp Knives that co-starred Abe Vigoda.

I have friends that saw him perform in a stage play in Toronto a few years ago, they met him afterwards and told me that he couldn’t have been nicer and more willing to talk about his work on those 15 famous episodes.
