Picks and Pans Review: The Great Standups
HBO (10:30-11:30 p.m. ET)
Carl Reiner narrates this special about standup comics. Using film clips to trace 60 years of comedy history, Reiner revisits George Burns and Gracie Allen, Fanny Brice, Elaine May and Mike Nichols, and such modern wits as Steve Martin, Joan Rivers and Eddie Murphy. Also included is the classic Abbott and Costello "Who's on First" baseball routine.
