Carl Reiner :(

Emperor of Hollywood Comedy, Carl Reiner, died of natural causes, last night, at the age of 98.  If it was comedy in Hollywood, in the last 70 years, Carl Reiner usually had something to do with it.

I remember when his documentary came out in 2017 (which I still haven't seen), asking other 90-year-olds about the secret of their longevity:  "If You're Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast" lol.

No breakfast this morning, Mr. Reiner, it seems - who will Mel Brooks have deli-sandwich dinners with now (sometimes turning Jerry Seinfeld into an errand boy, off to get them)?  :(

Thank you for all that you did for the world of comedy, and for your final words on Twitter ...


Then the world awoke at 7:30 a.m. today with the sad news of your passing.

Rest in peace, buddy.  Ya 'dun' good, as we say in the South :)
