It’s been several weeks since Carl Reiner passed away, but I recently read a brief blurb in Parade Magazine (of all places!) by comedian Judy Gold that highlighted something I’d never really considered before: the fact that he wrote a part in The Dick Van Dyke Show for a female writer on the fictional TV show within the show.

Just one more reason to love — and respect — this titan of comedy.

(The full Judy Gold feature is here. She has a new book out called Yes I Can Say That and also makes several other reading recos.)
