My Anecdotal Life

A Memoir
Audiobook

MY ANECDOTAL LIFE "Aren't we lucky that Carl Reiner's memory is still intact. He has given us a veritable treasure trove wonderful recollections, some side-splittingly funny and few that are really touching. The best one is about me. " "After reading this book, you'll know why Carl Reiner was one of my all-time favorite guests on The Tonight Show. He's bright, a brilliant story-teller, self-effacing, and funny as hell. " This book offers the absolutely incomparable experience of knowing what it would be like to have Carl Reiner as a friend and without the exorbitant costs of trying to book him on a regular basis. in this funny and engaging memoir spanning five decades of Broadway, Hollywood, and television history, one of the best raconteurs on the planet recalls his life in show business in short comic takes. Reiner tells of how, after answering an ad for free acting classes on his brother Charlie's advice, he forsakes a budding career as a machinist for an acting career. He takes us back to his first sweaty audition, his forays into the theater, his work on Your Show and The Dick Van Dyke Show during TV's golden days, his long friendship and collaboration with Mel Brooks and much more.
