"2000 Years With Carl Reiner & Mel Brooks" is one of the greatest comedy albums of all time. It was pure genius in its day and the comic spark heard on the album remains just as funny today as it probably did when it was firs released.
"2000 And One Years With Carl Reiner & Mel Brooks" is my favorite album out of the set. The 2000-Year-Old Man makes a return appearance on the album, but I find the "Two Hour Old Baby" sketch and "Psychiatric Society" to be more hilarious. "Watch the eyes."
"Carl Reiner & Mel Brooks At The Cannes Film Festival" is my least favorite album in the bunch. Maybe its because the album is parodying European sensibilities, I don't know, but the sketches here are just not as funny as the ones on the other albums.
"Carl Reiner & Mel Brooks: 2000 And Thirteen" brings back the 2000-Year-Old Man after nearly a decade of absence. The entire sketch is one long interview between the Reporter (Reiner) and the 2000-Year-Old-Man. I kind of wish there were some other sketches here, but there's enough hilarity to keep one interested.
The set includes a booklet that explains how the 2000-Year-Old Man came to be and the transcript of and interview between Saul Kahan and Reiner and Brooks. What's so fascinating about this whole collection is that none of it was rehearsed (except for parts of 2000 & 13 because Brooks was so scared to do the character again).Read more ›
The 2009 Kennedy Center Honoree Mel Brooks and Mark Twain Winner Carl Reiner pokes fun at history, legends (Robin Hood. Paul Revere) as well as life itself. It is funny look at history that will make you smile as they poke fun in the eyes of history. Reiner plays straight man to Brooks's peppered and sagely sage...and its works so well.
This three disc set includes all five albums that the 2000 year man appeared. This included the Grammy winning comedy album, The 2000 Year old man in the year 2000. These comedy sketches that Brooks and Reiner do in tandem almost never seem to date themselves. You will gag with whimsy until you are hurting from the belly laughing.
The fourth disk is a DVD. One of the highlights is an animated short of the 2000 year old man which appeared on TV in 1975. There are other TV appearances and a 2009 interview with Reiner and Brooks discussing the origins of the 2000 year old man.
I just they do another 2000 Year old man for the year 2010. So If you want to laugh and laugh a lot, buy this box set.

In my opinion, Mel Brooks is one of the finest comic geniuses we've been blessed with in the past century, or so! This whole concept is incredibly funny. Read morePublished 6 months ago by thisedit
