My review of the new box set from comedy legends Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks was posted to Popdose today:
“Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks met when both men were writers for Sid Caesar’s fabled television program, Your Show of Shows. Working from an idea that Reiner had, they developed a comedy routine based on the memories of a 2,000 year-old man. Reiner took the part of the interviewer, and Brooks was the old man. For ten years, from 1950-1960, they performed their routine for friends at parties. There was some fear — keep in mind that WW II had ended only a few years earlier — that some people might be offended by Brooks’ clearly Jewish caricature.”
