The 2,000 Year-Old Man

Every year the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress selects 25 recordings to be preserved for all time. One of this year's selections is the famous 1961 comedy routine by Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner about a man so old, he once knew Jesus - personally - and dated Joan of Arc. Billy Crystal and Rob Reiner explain why "2000 Year-Old Man" will live forever. Produced by Ben Manilla and Devon Strolovitch.
