Carl Reiner! In Person!

When it comes to laughter – flat-out, clutch your sides, tears-springing-from-your-eyes laughter – Carl Reiner is an American icon.

For something like four generations he’s been cracking us up, from his writing and skit performance on the legendary Sid Caesar’s “Your Show of Shows” (external link) to his creation of “The Dick Van Dyke Show” (external link) to his “2000-Year-Old Man” recordings with Mel Brooks; from his involvement in Steve Martin’s flicks to his role as Saul in the “Ocean’s 11” (external link) series of movies to his novels and kids’ books of recent years.

Carl Reiner is coming to the Library of Congress on Monday, October 26 at 1:30 p.m. to speak and sign his books. The event will be free and open to the public, and will be in the Montpelier Room on the sixth floor of the Library’s James Madison Building at 101 Independence Ave., S.E. in Washington.

    The 2000 Year Old Man recording, “2000 Years with Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks” (1961)” was added to the National Recording Registry in 2008.

    No reservations needed, although we do recommend you note the doors open at 12:30, an hour before it will begin. The early birds will get the best seats …
