Re: Carl Reiner Dies at 98 yrs

Oh, my gosh, I hadn't heard this. Thanks for posting, @Pearlee   What a galvanizing talent he was, both in his own right, and bringing others to the fore, like wonderful D i c k Van D y k e,  and Mary Tyler Moore.

 

I absolutely LOVE his timeless portrayal of "Alan Brady",  egomaniacal TV performer-- he went all out as Alan, and the actor side of him must have reveled in the sheer fun of showing an aspect of show biz that is all too real...

 

Created clever, stylish comedy that has stood the test of time.  RIP.

All the true entertainers/artists from the last generation are leaving us. 

We could really use these great comics from the past to make us laugh!!!!

This was the GREATEST generation.

Carl Reiner - a real mensch.

Carl and Betty White made such a cute couple on Hot in Cleveland, both same exact age.

Wow, so sorry to hear this.  Ironic we just watched "Ocean's Eleven" last night for the umpteenth time.

 

Will have to check out 2,000 yr old man on youtube, as I've never seen them.

 

Well done, Mr. Reiner.  RIP
