Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

A veritable Renaissance man of comedy, this genial one-man band has been an integral cog in American humor for four decades. He came to fame in the 1950s as a writerperformer on "Your Show of Shows" and "Caesar's Hour," winning two Emmys supporting the show's star, Sid Caesar. In 1961 he created (and often wrote) "The Dick Van Dyke Show," on which he also played tyrannical variety show host Alan Brady; he won five Emmys for the show, three for writing and two for producing. He broke into screenwriting with two popular Norman Jewison comedies, The Thrill of It All (1963, also playing a funny cameo) and The Art of Love (1965); Jewison then gave him a starring role in The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming! (1966). That same year, he published the autobiographical "Enter Laughing," and made his directorial debut in 1967 with its screen adaptation. He reunited with Dick Van Dyke for the bitter sweet depiction of early Hollywood, The Comic (1969, which he cowrote) and then directed the cult comedy Where's Poppa? (1970). A period of inactivity ended with Oh, God! (1977) and a spate of films that led stand-up comic Steve Martin to screen stardom: The Jerk (1979), Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982), The Man With Two Brains (1983), all of which he also cowrote, and All of Me (1984). Other films include The One and Only (1978), Summer Rental (1985), Summer School (1987), Bert Rigby, You're a Fool (1989, which he also wrote), Sibling Rivalry (1990), and Fatal Instinct (1993). His acting credits over the years include The Gazebo (1959), Gidget Goes Hawaiian (1961, as Gidget's father), It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963), A Guide for the Married Man (1967), Generation (1969), The End (1978), along with amusing cameos in many of his own movies. He also appeared many times on television (and in a series of hilarious record albums) as straight man to Mel Brooks' 2000-YearOld Man. Reiner's sons Rob and Lucas have followed him into acting and directing.
