Brian Rose Presents: Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks: The Grandmasters of American Comedy
7:00 pm -
For more than seven decades, Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks made America laugh—either through their remarkable solo careers or their legendary partnership. Whether together or apart, they were giants of American comedy, who basically conquered every field they entered, whether television, movies, Broadway, or records. This presentation will examine their extraordinary achievements, beginning with their work together on Sid Caesar’s Your Show of Shows and their creation of the 2000 Year Old Man, to their individual accomplishments as writers, directors, and performers.
Brian Rose is a professor emeritus at Fordham University, and has written several books on television history and cultural programming.
