RIP, Carl Reiner

That’s as good a bit as you will ever see, even today.

Giants once walked amongst us, and very few were bigger than Carl Reiner.  Reiner was 98, which is multiple encores in my book. You can see his impact on Comedy everywhere you look.  If you can find it, I highly recommend his loosely biographical novel Enter Laughing. I read it as a kid before I knew anything about Reiner or his career.

Variety has a nice obit up.

Flags at half-mast, and I want a security team around Mel Brooks. Not today, 2020, not today.

    A good man, a natural comedian, and a spokesperson for many causes, Carl Reiner will be greatly missed. he will be missed by not only his family, but by a nation of fans. Thank you, Mr Reiner.

    He was also a good father. That meathead son of his is just as big of a national Treasure.

    The ‘2,000 Year Old Man’ bit always cracked me up, ever since I was a kid.

    • I especially liked the one where he detailed the anthems of those bygone days. “♪ A lion is eating my foot off, somebody call a cop ♫” and “♫ They can all go to hell, except cave seventy-six! ♪” were my favorites.
