Program Description

Event Details

Join Adjunct Professor and TV and film historian Sal St. George, for a multimedia presentation about the making of the Dick Van Dyke Show.  Carl Reiner discovered Comic Gold when he saw Bye Bye Birdie and spotted actor, singer, dancer and comedian: Dick Van Dyke. Based on Carl’s own experiences working on Your Show of Shows, the series masterfully blended Rob Petrie’s hilarious office life with his equally hysterical home life. The series made household names of Mary Tyler Moore, Morey Amsterdam and Rose Marie. Learn the backstory of the Dick Van Dyke Show and learn about its Long Island connections.
