Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks (MB/Photo: Angela George)

For more than seven decades, Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks made America laugh, through either their remarkable solo careers or their legendary partnership. These giants of American comedy conquered every medium they took on: television, films, Broadway, and recordings.

Media historian Brian Rose takes a look at (and gives a listen to) their extraordinary achievements, from their work together on comedian Sid Caesar’s “Your Show of Shows” and their creation of the classic 2,000-year-old man sketches to their accomplishments as writers, directors, and performers.

And no one will ever pull off sporting a cocked, broad-brimmed hat and flowing cape like Brooks, even if they live to be 2,000.
