Carl Reiner at 100 – Celebrating a Comedy Legacy Presented in Partnership with the National Comedy Center
Join us in marking the centennial year of the late comedy legend Carl Reiner. Those who knew him best – including children Annie, Lucas, and Rob Reiner, and best friend Mel Brooks – will host a one-of-a-kind evening of laughter, reflecting on Reiner’s remarkable seven-decade career as a writer, director, producer, author, and performer. We’ll feature highlights spanning Reiner’s wide-ranging contributions to comedy history, from his early years as a performer on Sid Caesar’s legendary Your Show of Shows and his creation of the seminal Dick Van Dyke Show to his collaboration with Mel Brooks* on the Grammy-winning 2000 Year Old Man and his acclaimed cinematic partnership with Steve Martin (The Jerk, All of Me and more). The presentation will feature in-person and video appearances by special guests, as well as rare footage from the National Comedy Center’s new exhibition on Carl Reiner opening in the summer of 2022.
*We are hopeful Mr. Brooks’ schedule will permit him to join us in person. If that is not possible, he will participate remotely.
