Carl Reiner Webcast Now Online

Share this post:

Legendary comedian Carl Reiner spoke to a standing-room-only audience at the Library the other day, and I had the very good fortune of attending.

I guess I should not have been surprised that this 87-year-old man was every bit as funny and incisive as he always has been.  He spun terrific yarns, was always quick with a quip, and he did it all without a single notecard.  The crowd was in stitches almost the entire time.  I saw people literally doubling over–you don’t see that too often.

The webcast of his talk, which included a lot of comments about the books he has written, is now online.

My favorite parts were the Shakespearean soliloquies that he recited verbatim, from memory.  What did you like most?
