Comedy Classics: The 2000-Year-Old-Man Gets a Clean Bill of Health


We've paid tribute to Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks and their 2000-Year-Old-Man routines before on Jewish Comedy Central, usually on special occasions. Brooks got a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, the duo released a new set of CDs, and they found their way onto our pages one way or another.

Today we found a video clip of one of their appearances on The Hollywood Palace that we hadn't seen before and thought that you might like it, too. So here are Reiner and Brooks playing their usual roles of the interviewer and the 2000-Year-Old-Man on TV in (can you believe this?) 1966.

Please let us know via the comments and checklist below if you would like to see occasional postings that feature classic clips from the golden age of comedy.  Enjoy!
