"Coast-to-Coast Big Mouth"

This Dick Van Dyke Show episode is a classic for all time. Carl Reiner's tour de force performance begins at minute 16:20. But watch the whole show posted here because all of the cast members are terrific (as always) in this episode, which was written by the incomparable team of Bill Persky and Sam Denoff and directed by the hilarious Jerry Paris.

After you've watched this episode, you'll want to read Carl Reiner's memoir, My Anecdotal Life.

Thank you, Carl Reiner, for sharing your talent and your joy.

Much love . . .
