comedy icon Carl Reiner, RIP
Comedy icon, actor and filmmaker Carl Reiner died on Monday night at his Hollywood home, according to TMZ. He was 98.
His comedy resume was enormously long: he co-created classic '60s sitcom The Dick Van Dyke Show; with lifelong friend Mel Brooks he made one of the most famous comedy albums of all time (The 2000 Year Old Man); and he directed many of Steve Martin's early films, including The Jerk, The Man with Two Brains, Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, and All of Me; and so much more.
Carl was an active social media user and just yesterday was wishing Mel Brooks a happy 94th birthday.
Rest in peace, Carl. You were irreplaceable. May we all live as long and do 10% of what you did.
