Genius Yes. Raconteur, NO.
Almost impossible to follow Carl's disjointed and incomplete sentences that seems like an effort to cover for conversational story-telling difficulties,
Reiner's comedy writing (for performers) is pure genius and deservedly legendary, but a raconteur, he is not.
When I want to enjoy's Carl's genius, I listen to recordings of the 2000 Year-Old Man.
