Brooks and Reiner worked together on Sid Caesar's Your Show of Shows and as a nightclub comedy act that gave us "The 2,000 Year Old Man." Reiner then created what may be the greatest sit-com of them all, The Dick Van Dyke Show, which not only catapulted Van Dyke to stardom but was the first to feature both the home and work situations of the title character in equal portions.
Working separately, they have entertained us with movies, TV shows and theatrical productions that have been a part of our lives and our collective sense of humor. Here's hoping they are with us for many more years!
