Let’s look back and try to answer these questions.
Carl started his career more than half a century ago, back when the world was recovering after the WWII. At first he performed in Broadway musicals, such as Inside U.S.A., and Alive and Kicking, In 1950 the future millionaire landed a role on Your Show of Shows and started working as a writer alongside Mel Brooks and Neil Simon.

As a screenwriter, Bruce is known for The Thrill of It All, The Art of Love, The Comic (with Aaron Ruben, The Man with Two Brains (with Steve Martin and George Gipe, 1983) Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid (with Steve Martin and George Gipe, 1982) He is also credited for directing Enter Laughing, The Man with Two Brains, Sibling Rivalry, Fatal Instinct and That Old Feeling.
Carl had an interesting attitude towards comedy. He did not think that unrealistic, extraordinary scenarios, fantastic details and fascinating lies are necessary ingredients of a good show. He is quoted saying: “The absolute truth is the thing that makes people laugh.“ And from many respects, I think he couldn’t have been more right. A good comedy is the one that allows us to step outside of reality and to see it with the eyes of an „alien“; to see it for what it is with all the peculiarities, irrationalities and weirdness typical to human behaviour – „comedy really tells you how it is“. He really knew what the audience needs to hear to burst with laughter and this is why Carl reiner net worth is so impressive.
