Product Description

From Amazon

In 1960, two young, little-known comedians released an album of largely improvised sketches in which a journalist interviews a 2,000-year-old man. The journalist was Carl Reiner; the crotchety Jewish Methuselah was Mel Brooks. The album was a hit, giving a huge boost to both of their careers. It was followed by three more records over the next 13 years, as well as numerous "2,000-year-old man" TV appearances by the pair. Now, after a 24-year hiatus, Brooks and Reiner have revived the 2,000-year-old man in honor of the millennium, soliciting his views on everything from voice-mail trees to rap music--from the Mars landing to infomercials. While the format doesn't have the breakthrough freshness it did in 1960--and while jokes about being old may have a more poignant edge now coming from these two--Brooks and Reiner are still very funny men, and The 2,000 Year Old Man in the Year 2000 is a welcome visit with them.

From Library Journal

The team that created the 2000-year-old man revive him for the millennium.

I've said it before, I'll say it again, Mel Brooks is a comedical genius. This book is a great short read. Whether you're new to this 2000 year old man or you're a long time fan this book is hilarious. Much of it is rewording of the old acts that Mel did with Carl Reiner. They make fun of everyhting from the new miracle diets to God to sex. There's even a section called See Moses Run. The humor is if anything very Jewish which is great, if you understand Judaism.
If you like Brooks humor, buy this book. It's good for a gift if you get it along with the accompanying CD under the same title as the book or the Complete 2000 Year Old Man 4 disc set.

True, it's about a two hour read for most -- five for me but I tracethe words with my finger as I read. On the plane, I laughedaloud. There was some whispering and the woman next to me changed her seat. Some of it may be recycled shtick but it still seems fresh. Most I've never seen/heard and I have listened to the Old Man CDs. I'd say there's fifty belly laughs, ten chortles, one guffaw, three titters and a smile. It will give you a few hours of delightfully outrageous grumpy old Jewish man humor. I should know. Buy it. Read it. Laugh. Eat your oatmeal and let me alone already. END

I Paid a little less than 2 dollars for this book at a discount book store and that is just about what it is worth! Some of the jokes aren't funny ! I whited out all the inappropriate references which where unfunny and frequent! Don't buy this book unless you prefer filthy and unfunny humor books! Mel brooks and Carl reiner can be very funny when they get there mind out of the gutter. That is why I bought this book! I wish I hadn't

Yes, a lot of it is rehashed from the original routines on the records, but it's still pretty funny stuff - and if the title page made me laugh then it must be pretty funny!
You do have to be a Mel Brooks fan in order to appreciate this book. If you're not, then you just won't like it, no matter how much I or anyone else recommends it. But if you are, then be prepared for some fall-down roll-on-the-floor howls.
