Remembering Carl Reiner

Carl Reiner

We are so sad to learn that comedy legend Carl Reiner has passed away at the age of 98. Reiner was a writer and performer on Sid Caesar’s Your Show of Shows, created The Dick Van Dyke Show, and wrote and performed “The 2000 Year Old Man” with friend Mel Brooks. He was also an author and film director, and continued acting well into his 90s, with television and voiceover performances.

Below are some selections from his 1998 interview:
