The first song was a cry for help, according to the 2000 year old man: “A lion is eating my foot off, will somebody call a cop…” This tape and The Muppets Comedy Album record were my formative comedic soundtracks.
This is still how the audience reacts to a live Tony Bennett concert, well in his 90s.
Mel Brooks, Norman Lear and Carl Reiner still find each other hilarious in their 90s. Norman Lear has recently become host of a new podcast; Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner get together daily to watch stupid movies.
Comedy nerd, or enjoy conversing with the elderly? Watch “If you’re not in the obit, eat breakfast” from Carl Reiner and co. I’ve been reading the perfect book companion, too: Judd Apatow’s “Sick in the Head” which consists of 600 pages of interviews with many of the people in this film and basically any comedian or comedy writer of the last 40 years.
