LEGENDARY CARL REINER GUESTS ON AXS TV’S TOM GREEN LIVE
AND TALKS ABOUT THE EARLY DAYS OF LIVE TV, THE ROLE OF ALAN BRADY
AND EVEN DROPS THE F-BOMB
LOS ANGELES – June 27, 2014 – Tom Green, host of AXS TV’s TOM GREEN LIVE, sat down with the legendary comedian/writer/director Carl Reiner last night for an intimate, in-depth conversation that covered a myriad of topics ranging from his work on “Your Show of Shows,” the role of Alan Brady on the “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” and his friendship with Mel Brooks. He also took advantage of the show being uncensored by dropping the “f-bomb.”
Reiner, 92, didn’t miss a beat the entire hour, swapping quips with Green at every turn. He told jokes from the past; talked about his new book; and even joined Green in eating one of his favorite meals- a hot dog topped with sauerkraut. Other highlights included Reiner talking about his work with Steve Martin; his admiration for George Burns and his thoughts about today’s comedians.
