CD Reviews

The most durable comedy routine in history.
02/25/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner will never wear out their welcome as long as they keep updating and improving their "2000 Year Old Man" routine, as evidenced by "The 2000 Year Old Man In the Year 2000." Mel Brooks is one of the funniest people on the planet and Carl Reiner is perfectly restrained in his role as interviewer. If this CD doesn't make you laugh out loud throughout, then your sense of humor has been destroyed by decades of watching lame sitcoms such as "Three's Company" and "Full House." Long live Mel and Carl!"
Perhaps the funniest 40 minutes on CD

"I a fair amount of comedy CDs, and this is easily the best. Mel Brooks is at his funniest, pretending to be a 2000+ year old man, even trhough parts of it would make you think he is actually 3000+ years old.It does get a little bawdier at the end, with the f-word used a bit in the end, but its nothing worse tha the bulk of public TV nowadays.Enjoy it; you will if you listen to it."
Still Making me Howl with Laughter

"I'm thrilled to know the 2000 Year Old Man is alive, well, and still kicking. I found this CD while looking for The Complete 2000 Year Old Man CD collection. Sadly, the collection is no longer offered by the manufacturer. But I HAD to have this one. It did not disappoint. I could picture everything in my mind as he spoke of times gone by. The humour is as fresh on this performance as on the originals.

The one problem is that you'll be using catch words and phrases and only another member of the 2000 Year Old Man fan club will understand.

Please, please, re-issue the complete collection!!! Let's start a petition. And eat a nectarine it's a heck of fruit."
