Remembering an honoring Carl Reiner--a comedic legend & one of the nicest guys in show business

KNXAM: On-Demand
Tuesday, June 30th
Carl Reiner was the driving creative force behind the Dick Van Dyke Show......Reiner with his long time collaborator and friend Mel Brooks created the 2,000-year-old-man comedy routine..........Reiner had writing and directing credits on The Jerk, All of Me, Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid and many more films.  He was an icon, mentor to dozens of aspiring comics, writers and directors......and widely acknowledged to be one of the nicest guys in show business.

Carl Reiner died today at the age of 98; the hyper-political Reiner is probably most irritated that he didn't live long enough to see the election results in November.

We're joined by two people to remember and honor Carl Reiner.
