RIP Carl Reiner

He lived to a ripe old age. What a life! He made us laugh.

He was featured in a very interesting, well-made documentary I watched a few years ago called If You're Not In The Obit, Eat Breakfast. Here's a quote about it.
Quote:
Carl Reiner, the 95-year-old comedian, writer, actor, and director, has a running gag about life as a nonagenarian. “Every morning … I pick up my newspaper, get the obituary section, and see if I’m listed,” he explains. “If I’m not, I have my breakfast.” He stages a version of this routine for the new documentary If You’re Not In the Obit, Eat Breakfast, airing Monday night on HBO, in which Reiner and a handful of other 90-something personalities mull old age, and the possible reasons for their longevity. “Is it luck? Genes? Modern medicine?” he wonders. “Or are we doing something right?”
I can only hope to live as happily and healthily into my 90s as he did.

When Your Show of Shows was on TV, I was coming of age and loved the humour

I also had a crush on Mary as Laura Petrie. Of course she was too old for me.

One of the greats.

When prominent entertainment figures pass like this, I always find myself saying, who are the "Carl Reiners" of the current day?

Invariably I come up short trying to name one.
