Factory on November 14 will team with comedians Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks for the release of “The 2000 Year Old Man: The Complete History,” compiling the best of the bits featuring Brooks playing the oldest man in the world, answering questions posed by Reiner about historical events and people. The pair started doing the routine in 1961. The three-CD/one-DVD set contains all five legendary comedy albums released by the duo, including “The 2000 Year Old Man In The Year 2000,” for which they received a Grammy Award in 1998. The DVD features a brand-new interview with Reiner and Brooks discussing the history of the routine, the 1975 animated “2000 Year Old Man” TV special, and vintage clips of the two appearing on “The Ed Sullivan Show” and “The New Steve Allen Show.” The set also includes extensive liner notes, rare photos and tributes from  some of the biggest names in comedy.
