He conquered the Broadway stage with enter laughing. Comedy albums with the two thousand year old man who conquered films as an actor and things like the Russians are coming. The Russians are coming and other films, and also as a director as you would said Steve. Martin started to become a movie star.

Yeah sees her, and he was a performer on that show, too. So you certainly have to count that. And then of course he created head of the family which he started yet, and the network didn't WanNa.

Remembering Carl Reiner, A Legendary Writer, Producer And Performer
"This is fresh air when Carl Reiner sitcom pilot starring him, his TV writer Rob Petrie was rejected by CBS producer Sheldon Leonard rescued it by persuading Reiner to replace the entire cast, including Reiner himself. The result. The Dick Van Dyke show was a major TV hit and made a star of its then unknown leading lady Mary Tyler Moore. Terry Gross spoke with her about the show and her TV character in 1995. What were you told about the character of Laura? Just that she was going to be a wife, a television wife, and that really had its classical parameters and dimensions that they were established. And they hardly ever varied except A Sze to whether or not the wife was the star of the show. In which case she was the funny one. Or if she were the straight man for the male star, and she was then totally supportive, but all these wives We're kind of obedient and you know, a representative of the vows to love, honor and obey. They hardly varied from that, and With with Carl Reiners character the way she was written, Laura actually had opinions of her own. While she was asserting herself. She also didn't make Dick Van Dyke look like a dummy. It was ah, a matter of two people. I mean, society's expectations of that point still said, Hey, wait a minute, lady. You only go so far here, but I think we broke new ground. And and that was helped by my insistence on wearing Pants. You know, jeans and and capri pants at the time because I said, I've I've seen all the other actresses, and they're always running the vacuum in these little flowered frocks with high heels on And I don't do that. And I don't know any of my friends to do that. So why don't we try to make this real and I'll dress on the show the way I do in real life, But it wasn't that easy. The sponsors were afraid you brazen right? They pointed specifically to if they used the term cupping under And I can only assume that that meant my you know my my seat that there was a little too much definition. And so they allowed me to continue to wear them in one episode. One scene per episode. And only after we check to make sure that there was a little cupping under as possible could coming under referring to the fit of your pants, the fit of the pants on my behind, right? But within a few weeks we were we were sneaking them into a few other scenes in every episode, and they were definitely cutting under and everyone thought it was great. The funny thing is, you know. Women liked me. They were not envious of the fact that their husbands had a crush on me. It was okay with them. They they were the first to know when I would meet people. They'd say My husband loves you so much. And he thinks you're so sexy. And this was it was not thing because they were also able to identify with me as a friend as a girlfriend. There was no resentment, no fear. Yeah, well, I think that that speaks so well for the character and your your portrayal of her. Did you do a lot of rehearsing with Dick Van Dyke? Or did you just have to do it? Minutes before the actual broken? The whole show was done in what they call multiple camera technique could still done today. But back then we were maybe the sixth or seventh show to use the technique. It began with Joan Davis, not Lucille Ball as everyone thinks John Davis did a show called I married Joan. What a girl! What a world What a life! Hey for you, and then Lucy and several other shows followed. But in that show it's a little like doing theater that's captured on film. You rehearsed for five days and then Ah, On the evening of the fifth day, the audience comes in and the camera's having blocked their moves in yours lined up with them. You film it from top to bottom in continuity. So during those five days, it was at least the 1st 3 days. It was very much a matter of rehearse. And contribute and attempt things and not be afraid to fail to make a fool of yourself. Just pick yourself up. And if it didn't happen this time, then the next time the experiment maybe it will Was a wonderfully supportive creative environment. Mary Tyler Moore, speaking to Terry Gross in 1995.

"Musical from the very start has been phenomenal. It's playwright composer. Lin Manuel Miranda. I unveiled a snippet of Hamilton in two, thousand, nine, surprising and delighting the OBAMAS, when performing it during a night of poetry and music at the White House. The full length musical premiered six years later at Joseph. PAPP's public theater then moved uptown to Broadway later that same year in two thousand fifteen. Miranda and Hamilton smashed box office records and won a Pulitzer. Some Grammy's an eleven Tony Awards including best musical. And in June twenty sixteen shortly before Miranda and some of his fellow original co, stars left the show Hamilton was filmed three times for a movie version. Twice in front of an audience, and once with steady cam and crane operators, swooping around and above the stage. That film version was intended to be locked away for five years until its plan national movie release in the fall of twenty twenty one. But because of the pandemic, and because both movie and Broadway theaters are currently shutdown Disney's streaming service Disney, plus is releasing the movie version of Hamilton today as a special treat for Independence Day weekend, the production is so good and so eagerly anticipated. I predict a major TV blockbuster. Hamilton the stage musical is such a massive hit. It could afford to do everything right in mounting a movie version and has. Captured the actors at the very height of their performance and comfort levels with most members of the company, having played their roles on stage for more than a year. Film director Thomas Kale. who also directed the Broadway version preserve the theatricality of the stage presentation yet new win zoom in for some emotional and revealing close ups. Best of all he knew window include reactions from the audience who could be heard, but not seen responding to some of the musicals best bits. These include the time in the film when Miranda as Alexander Hamilton and Davos digs as the marquee, the Viet serve up one of the plays most famous lines. Your. Monsieur. in-command! No sweat..

Yeah well I think that speaks well for for the character and your your portrayal of her. Did did you do a lot of rehearsing with Dick Van Dyke or did you just have to do it minutes before the actual broadcast, the whole show was done in what they call multiple camera technique still done today, but back then we were maybe the sixth or seventh show to use the technique. It began with Joan Davis, not Lucille Ball. As everyone thinks Joan. Davis did a show called I married. Joan What a girl would a world? What a life! For you and then Lucy and several other rub shows followed, but in that show it's a little like doing theater that's captured on film. You Rehearse for five days and then on the evening of the fifth day. The audience comes in and the cameras having blocked there moves, and yours lined up with them. You feel it from top to bottom in. In continuity so during those five days it was at least the first three days. It was very much a matter of rehearse and contribute and attempt things and not be afraid to fail to make a fool of yourself. Just pick yourself up and if it didn't happen this time, then the next time the experiment, maybe it will. It was a wonderfully supportive creative environment.

Well done fifteen years of television almost weekly for fifteen years and The child, the bigger the screen, the bigger the challenge on I only grew up watching movies, and I knew someday I wanted someday to be on that screen. Actually I got on the screen as an actor before I started directing in a few picture, but the best of them being the Russians are coming. The Russians are going to I had a starring role in that, but right after that I direct my first movie. Enter laughing and that was. That was the most exciting thing of all. Several of your movies have been collaborate collaborations with Steve Martin. How did you start working together? I was asked to come in on a picture that they were doing call. Easy money, which turned out to be the jerk has a director, and I work with him on the script, and we had such a good rep poor that and beside having a good rapport that wouldn't have. made us. Do more movies together, but the first picture. We did together grow so much money that they said Hey. Guys good to stick together. Actually we decided to do things together and took it to the studios. We had a good time. That's why we stayed together a delightful man. You directed Steve Martin all of me, and that's the movie in which. his his body is supposed to be invaded by the by the spirit of the soul of Lily Tomlin. And so he has to act as if he's. His body is the shell for her. How did you work with him? On getting the gestures and movements on that, it was such a good form. It's funny. Steve Martin another one of those graceful ungraceful man he does. He has very big hands and big feet, and there's no way he doesn't have the the ballet hands, and that's the only thing he missed. As a matter of fact, that's one of the few things I instructed him into. How the hand you might be a little more graceful, but other than that he came in. In one day and showed me a scene when when the first time Lily Tomlin, soul gets into his body where he was trying to walk like a man and the woman's sensibilities, and and soul will take over this schizoid personality. And when he showed it to me, I was just brilliant. He had come in and worked in the House with this walk.

Ask You about your your son Rob, reiner he He first became an acting star and all in the family meathead, and then he became a director directing movies like princess bride, spinal tap stand by me. Did you ever expect him to go into show business or not? Not? When he was very young, although he had a tremendous ability to remember everything he'd ever seen, he's one of these kids absorbs. He was one of those kids who absorb everything. You saw on television movies, but he never stated at. Loudly that he was GonNa do, but in his heart, he wanted to be a director always in that amazing, and he only told us about it later when he was about nineteen years old, I saw him direct a rookie drivers, and he were friends when they were in high school, and he directed a version of no exit by SORTA. And it was brilliant. He was only about eighteen or nineteen at the time at that point, his road was starting to be paved. He wanted to be a director's no question that he knew that he wasn't telling it to everybody. Because you know when you're young and say I, WanNa be a director I. Get out of here and he had it in his about mine. I'm sure all the time. It was on all in the family. He was planning it. D- show each. Each Other your work Oh.

That was Carl Reiner Creator of the Dick. Van Dyke show speaking to Terry. Gross in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine. He died Monday at age ninety, eight. After a break we'll continue our tribute to Carl Reiner with an interview from our archives, with one of the stars of that show Mary Tyler Moore, and with an excerpt of my interview with Mel Brooks. This is fresh air. Comedian Nicole. Buyer doesn't consider herself body positive. She just accepts herself as a hate there. There's a name for like not hating part of who you are. Do you know what I'm saying like? It's insane Nicole buyer on her new book very fat, very brave, and how to love yourself, listen to. It's been a minute from NPR. When Carl Reiner Sitcom pilot starring him as t rob Petrie was rejected by CBS producer Sheldon Leonard Rescued it by persuading Reiner to replace the entire cast including Reiner himself. The result the Dick Van Dyke show was a major TV hit and made a star of its then unknown leading lady Mary Tyler Moore Terry Gross spoke with her about the show and her TV character in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety five. What were you told about the character of Laura? Just that she was going to be a wife television, wife, that really had its classical. Parameters and dimensions they were established, and they hardly ever varied except. as to whether or not the wife was the star of the show, in which case she was the funny one, or if she were the straight man for the male star, and she was then totally supportive, but all these wives were kind of obedient, and you know a representative of the vows to love honour and obey the hardly varied from that and With with Carl Reiner's character, the way she was written Laura actually had opinions of our own while she was asserting herself, she also didn't make Dick Van Dyke look like a dummy. It was a matter of two people I mean societies expectations at that point.

"Among his Greatest Hits Co Starring Opposite Sid Caesar on television. Your show of shows on when she also was part of the writing staff. Creating the Dick Van Dyke show based on his own life as a TV writer. Teaming up with Mel, Brooks on a selling series of comedy albums about the two thousand year old man. Writing and directing plays and movies including. Alan Arkin in enter laughing and Steve Martin in the jerk. And playing the veteran conman in the series of Ocean's eleven movies. Today on fresh air. We remember Carl Reiner listening back to interviews with him as well as with his best friend Mel Brooks and Dick Van. Dyke show star Mary Tyler Moore. But I as a TV, critic and historian I'd like to offer my own appreciation. Carl Reiner is such a major part of TV history that he's a central figure in early television's best and smartest shows in two different genres, the variety series and the situation comedy. In variety, his NBC sketch series your show of shows, which starred Sid Caesar ran from Nineteen fifty to nineteen, fifty four and set the template that Saturday night live is still following. It was broadcast live for ninety minutes every Saturday night and featured guest hosts and performers and a repertory company of regular comedy sketch players. One, of Reiner's many roles in that company was as the reliable straight man feeding lines, so Caesar could react as in this sketch in which reiner interviews, a famous magician played by Cesar and unexpectedly dazzles him by performing the most basic of magic tricks, making his extended finger disappear beneath a handkerchief professor. There is one thing that interest most magicians is. How a magician starts the first. First, trick that gets them interested in magic I picked. I remember my first trick, it was so simple and yet he was trick that caused me to get interested. It was as simple as this I remember the child doing I put my finger under anger. I say hocus pocus finger disappear. The finger would disappear now. That was my very first drink and it got me into. What was yours? Has the finger. After your show of shows Reiner and another veteran of that same writing room, Mel Brooks performed and recorded a series of ad. libbed comedy bits that became hit record albums. Reiner was the straight man throwing unscripted questions at Brooks who claim to be the two thousand year old man? Reiner and Brooks also did the circuit of TV variety shows, but Reiner's next move back into series TV was to write a Sitcom about a situation. He knew quite well. Being a dad in new Rochelle. Who commuted in New York City, to write for a network TV variety show. He wrote scripts for thirteen episodes, and even filmed a pilot called head of the family, but CBS didn't buy it. Not with him playing the lead. Rob Petrie and Barbara Britton as his wife Laura. Your son dislikes you. Say. How can you dislike me his father? The No, the hate their fathers. It's only six years old. He doesn't want me long enough to hate me. But rather than let the project die TV producer Sheldon Leonard Persuaded Reiner that. The scripts were fine, but the cast needed a complete overhaul including reiner. The new version named after its new star was called the Dick. Van Dyke, show. He played TV, writer, Rob Petrie. Mary Tyler Moore played, his wife. Laura and in time Reiner got to play a recurring role as Alan Brady. The Sid Caesar like star of the variety show within the show. In one of the SITCOMS, most famous episodes Laura reveals on a TV game show that Allen Brady is secretly bald, which leads to her, visiting his office to Beg for forgiveness and her husband's Job I. Remember Telling Rob and I told him ten you'd. told him to tell you how very. Natural? That way for like a father figure right Oh no, Allan, just the opposite all mother figure. Link. Chore. Real person washed snowing here, we can see. The Dick Van. Dyke show which ran from nineteen, sixty, one to nineteen, sixty six was a top ten show for most of its tenure, it one fourteen emmys, and remains one of the best and funniest sitcoms ever made, but it was more than that because reiner was a comedy pioneer in more ways than one. The, Dick Van Dyke show was one of the first sitcoms to split its time equally between work and home. The show dealt on occasion with racial and sexual issues at a time when almost no show on TV did. And the show's finale episode long before most TV series provided, finales was so subtle that many viewers missed the joke. Namely that Reiner was bringing it full circle by having. Dick Van Dyke Rob Petrie write a story about his life. With a final twist, which rob describes to his wife and friends including Reiner's Alan Brady after returning from the publisher. Good News. Today! Yeah, he hates it. Looks scanning non. That's what they say. That's right. Because Ellen read it and he loved it. From style. Produce as a television series you. You're going to be a television seasons Joe of course I won't do until after my series is the funk which may never be. The Allen is going to play me. Let's so brilliant. And it's very much like what Larry David and Jerry. seinfeld would do thirty years later on Seinfeld presenting episodes in which their TV counterparts would pitch the concept of the very TV show on which they were starring. Carl Reiner once told me that over the years more than fifty TV writer had come up to him and said that the Dick Van Dyke show was their inspiration to pursue their career that before watching his show, they didn't know there was such. A job is a TV writer much less that it looked like so much fun. And finally with his death, Carl Reiner retires undefeated with a record. No one else in show business will ever be able to claim. He's the only performer to of appeared as a guest on every incarnation of NBC's tonight show from Steve, Allen to Jimmy, Fallon. Carl Reiner spoke with Terry Gross to in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine. She asked him if it was hard to break into show business, and if his parents thought he was foolish to try all know, my parents were very proud of the fact that I wouldn't be a bomb and I wanted to be an actress see. They thought they revered act because when I was a kid.

Our hearts are there so yeah, they're. They'll be there, too, and after Dick Van Dyke. Then you started You know you did a lot of things. Of course we started directing. Another classic movie and guys please a Netflix. It's wherever you can find these moves if you haven't seen them. The Russians are coming. The Russians are coming still like the Dick, Van Dyke show one of the funniest movies you can watch and one of the funniest cast to yes. Oh, my God, we had you mentioned Don rickles. Every wonderful comedian Oh. That Guy who? you know who used to whittle Eliza Jonathan Jonathan was his. Yes, he was hilarious. He wants started with a piece of wood. On the set when offset when we were waiting for. A square piece of wood, and by the time we're in that. He had a perfect wooden egg. At the negative. What kind of drew you to directing at that time? To meet, directing had written something that was a written a movie I. Guess that was the directed by somebody, and when he cut it and put it together, it was so I said No. No. I says you don't use a close up of somebody. When a joke is say to see the reaction, I said reaction should between the two of them were one looking see it was so badly. I decided I'd better direct to to save my material. So the second movie I wrote I directed the because I wanted to be there, and and by the way the best thing you can do about directing his hire actors who don't need directing us what I that's what. Hitchcock He Hitchcock I think rarely gave direction actors. Oh. He was so. I loved him. and. Say another.

The Ritz brothers the Marx brothers. We always went to see comedies and radio never missed Jack Benny Fred. Allen Show, and so there there it is, but also having a funny bone helps through this. Listen to comedy and would rather be doing something else. Yeah. I remember I don't know if you remember this conversation, but I think at that lunch. It was very funny where you thought that. I shouldn't say you thought that. You're saying that you didn't think conservatives were funny, but that liberals were funny. You said you. Didn't you said I just I.

Just slapped his work in a mired him and had no idea. You know until a little later just all the things that he did. Really kind of fashion, my career, you know. kind of in the vein of that multi hyphen it type of thing that Carl Reiner did. but man I ll. Carl Reiner to me was he was such a? He's in a class by himself, you know. and. It made me so sad of hearing of his passing, and he just back a rush of memories. That I just wanted to share it. The guys in replay this episode because it was such a fun conversation. I was invited to Carl's. House to do the the Pied Inde- just talked about his whole career and everything he couldn't have been nicer, but the first time I met car. It wasn't the first time I met Carl Reiner. I met him. When I say met him. Kind of approach to. Could see know who I was. I was a comedian at the time and. It was like the comedy awards. Early version of that I don't know if they still have this type of thing. I forgot who sponsored it. and. It was his black-tie thing. And I am I think I had started writing for TB at that point. I can't remember but I. Definitely was standup mainly and I think I want my manager. She had gotten some tickets or something. You know I'm sitting in the back. You know that type of thing wasn't a big deal. Like I was getting an award or anything, but they were at this particular words. They were honoring I think Mel Brooks I think it was mel. Brooks. In Mel Brooks, as was Carl Reiner. And I think Steve. Martin was there. Rob Reiner was there and some other people. It was a pretty heavyweight. Tommy table right. Just a a stand up comic. You know I thought I would go over to the table in. Just say hi to Carl Reiner. Now keep in mind as Mel Brooks Steve Martin, you know. Even Rob Reiner who I, really was a huge fan of you know especially as director I mean. There's one thing for what he did on the family, but you know. He directed spinal tap in some really great movies up to that point sounds a fan of the whole table. You know there's some others there, too, but I can't remember but. For some reason I was compelled just to go up and say hi to Carl. Reiner you know. And I kind of did his. Just went up to the table. Blogging by Mellberg Steve guarded everything and I go. Excuse me Mr Either A. Big Fatty Yours just thank you for everything you know you've done and I didn't know you know people. You know Steve Martin of Mellberg's Academy. Just Kinda look at me, just that say anything even if they even looked at me, I don't even know. I was just kind of not even looking at the table. It's funny how when you're young performer. You kinda shy about meaning people and stuff. Do you know? It's kind of interesting Alexandra's. Like almost like you don't feel like you're worried they'd be in the presence of of you. Know Comic Genius there. Whatever, but anyhow I just wanted to kind of just let him know how much I appreciated him, you know. And, so I said they and he was so warm, like immediately said Hey, what's your name and he wanted to know? How was he asked what I did I said well I'm stand up comedian. You know and try to make any said Oh. That's he's you know what I bet? You really funny and this was his reasoning. Because, he felt I. was good looking. He call, he said you're a good looking guy. He said you know who else was good. Looking Really Funny Dick. Van Dyke. You. Know really good looking guy really funny and I was like Whoa. What a! Way, Carl Reiner just said I was. Just compare the Dick Van Dyke it was so bizarre. But it was such an interest being thanked him. You know Kinda laughed and I went away, but I never forgot that you know, and it was bizarre that I wouldn't go to Mel. Brooks or somebody else that I would go to Carl Reiner. You know who was probably lesser known than the rest of that table ironically. So that was Kinda, my first run in Carl. Reiner you know he couldn't have been nicer, you know he could've just completely brushed me off or whatever, but he took his time to say something. Interesting he was observing about me and it's funny as I, listened to all the remembrances of Carl Reiner. I hear people telling stories like that where he did something personal for the person you know. He went outside of themselves to be nice. You know he made an effort to be as we say. You, know and just and just be human. You know that was the thing that was most interesting so years later. As a producing the Bernie Mac show with great Bernie Mac Burning, I both big fans Carl Reiner! We're talking about. Them wanted to have him on the show. I think we had just done. A dinner for Carl by we. It was a Phil Rosenthal and some other. Writers around town we used to do these dinners at the museum in Television, radio. Just kind of remembering some people who've come before, we did one for Sid Caesar so much fun. And, I believe we do Carl Reiner could be wrong about that, but I think we had just done that. Opt to check and see. so I know he was on our minds, he he am Bernie had worked with Carl in Ocean's eleven. You know in wanting to get him on the show. So we had Karl on the show, and he couldn't have been nicer once again, but it's kind of interesting. I got to experience kind of three different versions of Carl Reiner at this point. And it was fascinating guys to see this end. It makes it kind of makes sense because he was on one of the first true multi hyphen. It's you know and by that. I mean he was performer. Any shined as a performer. He was a writer, you know. A bright stars writer director. You know he was just a raconteur. You know he could tell a story. You know all that kind of stuff. He's done everything producer. So when we booked Carl to do the show, we had lunch with them me and the line producer and I think. Excuse me the line producer. I. Don't think Bernie was A. We're having lunch with Carl just at a restaurant and I'm sitting with Carl Reiner. The legend right. And Michael Air completely at his feet. You know he's at lunch and he's just telling US stories and we're laughing. We're were being completely respectable. You know here's the legend you know we are. We're pleased to be in his presence listening to his stories. You know he's so entertaining. He even told us about a he would hang out with Steve Martin Johnny Carson. They played cards, and they would do magic tricks and stuff, so I ended up showing Carl Magic..

Beautiful to sit with Carl and and listen to him and watch them interact on the phone with people in the room with me. But nothing is going to top. What happened after I shut the MIC off? And I will tell you this now. We turn off the mics I'm sitting there and almost immediately George Shapiro, who will as I? Said was napping in the chair across from Carl on and off was the first to get up and go. What a great interview! That was a great interview. Wasn't that great? And then Carl starts fiddling with remote controls. He's like I gotTA show you that PBS sing. With the Jews in the musical I gotTa show you that. I want I mentioned it. I I want to show it to you. And I'm like okay, and I'm putting my stuff away and then and then Georgia bureau goes their ice cream. Is there any ice cream? And then he wanders into the kitchen? The publicist guy who's air. He wanders in the kitchen and I'm watching Carl. He's got the TV on. He's looking forward so I go. Maybe it's on the other. Tibo, maybe this, Kiva. He's not bumbling, but yeah, there's a lot to be done here and clearly he watches a lot of television as a lot of things recorded. So then George Shapiro comes back into the room and starts handing out some kind of low calorie, ice cream sandwich, and now we're all eating ice cream and Carl starts. The. The. At the beginning so in my mind Mike Okay I. Guess I'm hanging out I guess I'm here for the hour I I don't know what happens now. Are we going to get to the list that he wanted to show me? Look? It's not I. Don't have a lot to do in. This is an amazing thing, so I'm packing up watching something on Gershwin. We're eating ice cream sandwiches. Everything's great. And then the phone rings. And Carl picks it up and I'm packing my bag up. And I hear them go. No, it It went very well. It was very good yes, yes. And then he taps me on the shoulder with the phone and he go. He hands me the phone he goes. It's Mel Brooks. I'm like Oh okay so I pick up the phone and bring it to my ear and I go hello, and all I hear is eighty percent right? Right. And I said maybe eighty five and Mel Brooks goes alright. Maybe eighty five. Put Carl back on the phone. It was just too much for me to even. Put it together that. Yeah, that for three weeks. You this is it was this was the beat? This was the call back. This was the moment that is comic. Genius killed me. I kept it in because I didn't know you know. Look there comedians. I just. I just handled it like anyone would like Oh. My God I just waited for the longest punchline available by Mel. Brooks weeks weeks. So then Carl gets back on the phone and I. Think from what I glean. The conversation was Carl was insisting that he was going to roast his own chicken. And then like everything starts to break up by pack up and I. Get the the PBS thing. He didn't seem to be hung up on showing me the list at the end and I say goodbye. To Carl and I thank him and And I'm walking out to Shapiro. We finish our ice cream. Sandwiches I'm walking out with George Who Piero and You know we get outside. And he goes I was great. That was a great job because what it melts say. And I said he said Carl's about eighty percent. And, George, Bureau Goes Day tells the truth. He walks away and I got in my car and I listened to the interview I. Just done with the one of the great comedy. Minds of of ever of ever.

"Those who listen to my show, no that I had Mel Brooks on and it was an amazing conversation and I I want to I, sort of talked about. A story that is unfolding that involves me Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner, that was one of the most spectacular moments of my life and show business, and this is the the second part of this story we'll. We'll conclude at the end of the Carl Reiner episode I'll give you some more detail, but let me set this up a little bit for you. So I interview Mel Brooks and we have a good time. You heard it. We take a liking to each other. I always liked him, but he had no idea who I wasn't. He ended up liking me and we had a nice time. He walked out to my car was all very. Charming and funny, and he says I, you know. I'm to set you up with Carlin. As you recall I said. How is Carl and Mel? Said about eighty percent. And I said well. That's good. That's good, you know. He's hanging on. Everybody's good, and you'll hear in the Carl Reiner episodes very different type of conversation. You Know Carlos. Carl Reiner Mel Brooks, but they're both. Have A lot of clarity. They got all their All their ducks are still in a row. Some of them are a little wobbly, but they're all in a row and they're tight man, they're. They're definitely present and coherent and just great, great agile comedic minds. These guys are the best. There ever was really the two of them. Now let's set the stage a little bit. So after he tells me he's going to hook me up a Carl. We set it up few weeks. Go by, and then I gotTa Drive Oh to Carl's house. Now I have to really. A ACCENTUATE! Feels to me not just because I grew up with Mel Brooks movies or Carl Reiner. And Rob Reiner and the two thousand year old man. But there there's Jewishness to this whole adventure that that is very familiar with t. t to me, you know. I drove to Carl's house in Beverly Hills. I got out of the car, and it was was a home in. You know in the old old part of Beverly Hills so it's a home next to other homes, but it's a big home. The door was open. There was commotion going on. There was people coming in and out there was a woman there who was doing something. There was a guy who I think is a publicist for his new book. Carl Reiner I remember me, which is his new book out now. And and George Shapiro was air now. George Shapiro as you know, or may not knows a very big comedy manager. He manages Karl He manages Jerry Seinfeld. He's got a few writing. Clients used manage ordering atoms, but but he's Carl's nephew and he's in his seventies. I, I'm speculating there, but I would say he's in his seventies so now the familiarity with me is you know you drive up to a house? The doors open their things going on. There's a living house. It looks like it's been lived in I, Picture Rob Reiner growing up there. I picture the family there. I picture, you know in Jewish households and I'm not saying it's specific the Jewish households but I. Just I felt immediately. Immediately at home you sit in the living room and it looks like people sit in this living room. You know foods been served in here and just look old Jews familiar to me. That's all but Carla's not I don't know if I can say this. How can I say this? He's not as as virtually Jewish or do we as Mel Brooks, it's a different frequency It's a different tone, but I walk in. And Georgia, Shapiro's air and You know he's talking to me about this and that and then we're waiting for Carl the publicist is there and then. We're getting set up and then Carl's GonNa come down. And then Carl makes his way down. That Carl's almost ninety one and it was a grand entrance. He sits down the chair and I set up the mics and we begin to talk. Now what happens after Carl sits down is He's sitting in a chair. I'm sitting in a chair next to him right next to him across directly across a coffee table from Carl. Is Mr George Shapiro? Who Sits in that share and I will say this lovely man during the interview I did glance over, and there were times where he was napping, he was napping a little bit in and out. No problem the publicist guy. Sitting on the Sofa now you gotta understand something I. Explain this the last time Carl. Reiner and Mel Brooks spend almost every evening together, just sitting there. Doing whatever they do and we talk. I talked to Carl a little bit about what they do, but this is a lovely you know. Open, it's got to be almost a century long friendship and it's very touching to me and just sitting among. Jews old Jews makes me very comfortable. So let's let's now go to to my conversation with Carl Reiner. And we will we will. We will reconvene here after the discussion so I can fill you in on the rest of the story it's. It's it's beautiful. It's beautiful. Let's go now to me and Carl, talking and Carl's living room. The first voice you hear is. George Shapiro was there when I was setting my microphones I might have.
