2000 AND ONE YEARS WITH CARL REINER AND MEL BROOKS is the follow up album to the duo's classic comedy smash, 2000 YEAR OLD MAN. The original was a piece of comic genius and was one of the key albums that took comedy to a different level. The main gag on 2000 AND ONE YEARS is a continuation from the first album. The 2000 Year Old Man is a year older and just a tad bit wiser as well as somewhat cynical; a lot can happen in a year, even to a 2000 year old man. Whereas the first album seemed fresh and inspired, Reiner and Brooks have their routine down pat and things seem a little stale. It's not really the material, but the actors don't seem as excited as they did on THE 2000 YEAR OLD MAN. That's not to say there's not some great stuff here. "Two Hour Old Baby" takes the oppositte approach to the 2000 Year Old Man--instead of listening to the oldest person in the world, we are invited to converse with one of the world's youngest. Then there's the "New Technique Psychiatric Society"--this is a killer sketch with some hilarious moments that are even more comical in the ever so politically correct culture and society in which we find ourselves. Just watch them eyes.
