It’s Carl Reiner’s birthday. Carl Reiner’s still alive? Yes! He’s 87. Who’s Carl Reiner?

He’s probably most famous as Mel Brooks’ straight man in the 2000 Year Old Man sketch, but here he is being a genius on the Smothers Brothers Show. Yeah, it’s corny ethnic humour, but, you know – feel the width…

Oh, and he directed The Jerk:

Happy Birthday, Carl.
