Mel Brooks Remembers His Friend Of 70 Years, Carl Reiner: “No one Could Do It Better”
Mel Brooks, whose dear companionship with the late Carl Reiner extended back to the 1950s, has presented a tribute on his old Your Show of Shows costar.
“Carl was a goliath,” said Brooks on Twitter, “unparalleled in his commitments to diversion. He made satire pearls.”
Streams met Reiner in 1950 on Your Show of Shows and, said Brooks, “We’ve been closest companions from that point forward.”
Of his experience doing The 2,000 Year Old Man with Reiner, Brooks recollected, “There was no better straight man on the planet.” The bit turned into a normal thing for the pair, who proceeded to make hit collections and a book dependent on it, winning a Grammy all the while.
Regardless of whether it was composing or performing or being a closest companion, “no one could show improvement over” Reiner, said Brooks.
In later years, as indicated by Vanity Fair, Reiner and Brooks would get together every night at Reiner’s home, have supper, watch Jeopardy and afterwards watch a film.
A week ago Reiner presented a video via social media and said that among the things his life he is generally glad for is his work with Brooks. He called Brooks “the absolute most interesting individual that at any point existed.”
On Tuesday Brooks restored the estimation to his buddy of 7 decades essentially and significantly. “I cherished him,” said Brooks. “He will be incredibly missed.”
