Carl Reiner In Person!

CARL REINER REMEMBERS

As writer, director, actor and producer, Carl Reiner stands alongside Mel Brooks and Woody Allen as one of the titans of late-20th-century American comedy. After honing his ability on stage to make audiences laugh, Reiner broke into television as an actor on "Your Show of Shows" in the early 1950s. Inspired by colleagues including Neil Simon and Mel Brooks, Reiner began contributing writing ideas to the program, an experience that led to his autobiographical scripts for “The Dick Van Dyke Show.”

After creating that award-winning series, Reiner turned to the cinema and helmed an abundance of comedy masterpieces, including WHERE’S POPPA, OH GOD! and a quartet of gems in collaboration with Steve Martin (THE JERK, DEAD MEN DON’T WEAR PLAID, THE MAN WITH TWO BRAINS, ALL OF ME). What characterizes these films is an irresistible combination of outrageousness and heart. Reiner combines unrestrained physical slapstick with sharp verbal wit, biting satire with affection for his eccentric characters.

He continues to delight audiences today with film and television appearances and such books as the recently published I Just Remembered. Join us at the Aero for a selection of Carl Reiner’s best, with an in-person appearance with ENTER LAUGHING and THE COMIC. Series also includes THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING! THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING!

Series programmed by Grant Moninger and Gwen Deglise.

We are thrilled to welcome Carl Reiner to the Aero Theatre on September 20!
