Carl Reiner dies 1902 years earlier than expected

That was Mel, Subby. And Mel turned 94 just two days ago. Couple of god damn legendary geniuses.

Nooooooooo!

Rest in Peace, funnyman.
 
2020-06-30 9:42:03 AM  
98 (most of them highly successful) is a pretty good run
 
2020-06-30 9:42:08 AM  
Rest In Peace sir.

I'll do my best to make your dream of a Trump loss come true.

Oceans 11 (the modern version) is one of top ten favorite movies of all time, due in no small part to Reiner.
I've been watching him (or his movies) all my life, but that role was my absolute favorite.

I guess this is some old-timey joke to a 34 year old man like me. 98 years? Darn at that point I would hope they live to be 100. Still impressive, though.

shiat shiat shiat shiat.   Now I'm worried about Mel Brooks, Bob Newhart

Sending my sincerest condolences to his son, Meathead. RIP

Who is Mel Brooks going to eat dinner with now?

But seriously, RIP Carl Yarborough.

That was both of them. FTFA:

Carl made a best-selling album with Mel Brooks called "2000 Years with Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks" which earned a Grammy nomination and sparked his writing career.

Mel Brooks turns 94, and two days later his best friend not named Anne Bancroft dies. Mel probably knew Carl was about to leave us, which is why he probably didn't celebrate his 94th birthday very publicly (knowing you are about to attend your best friends funeral probably puts a damper on a party).

This is what happens when Jeopardy has to go into reruns.

He was far more worthy than a farking TMZ link, Subby. JFC

Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid is one of my favorite comedies of all time. He was a comedic genius.

He had a great run.  I feel sad for his family, including Mel Brooks.

And was instrumental in getting Mel his first date with Anne.

I'm afraid Mel will be next. Those two were so close, I don't see Mel lasting long without him. It will be almost the last of the entertainment greats who were inspired by and mentored by the vaudeville stars of the day. We still have Carol Burnett, but I can;t think of anyone else.
 
2020-06-30 9:47:07 AM  
DAMN YOU, 2020! HAVEN'T YOU CAUSED ENOUGH TROUBLE? HE WAS ONLY 98, FOR GOD'S SAKE!

My Gran was 102 when she died. 4 years make a difference, and if you don't believe me, high school...never mind...

I was thinking about this Sunday on Mel's birthday - once the first one of this group goes, they're
all going to go fast.  And that is really going to leave a mark.

FU 2020. Goddam, what's next?


And thank you, Carl.

Hear, hear.

When Danny asks him if he is up for the job, his reply "If you ever ask me that question again Daniel, you will not wake up the following morning." was just so great.

Good night extremely funny man.

He's the best part of the film for sure! Just so charming.

Ahhhh, Dick Van Dyke. I knew I was missing one more person inspired by/mentored by vaudevillians. We just don't have actors that do what vaudeville did anymore... :-(
