Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks reminisce about the “2,000-year-old Man”

On Sept. 9, 2011, HBO will broadcast a comedy special pairing Mel Brooks with Dick Cavett in conversation, but in this clip, we see that Carl Reiner is there, too, and they’ll be talking about the classic bit Reiner and Brooks used to do about a 2000-year-old man.

Roll it.

And here is Reiner and Brooks in action back in 1966, which is before you were born, but they had both TV and comedy back then, so sit back and watch.
