Family Tree

The illustrious Reiner Dynasty of American comedy is a dynasty of great success, with nine Emmy Awards, a Grammy, and numerous other prestigious awards won amongst its members. Carl Reiner, the patriarch of the dynasty, was born in The Bronx to Austrian and Romanian Jewish immigrants. His son Robert, who followed in his father's footsteps to become an actor, director, and producer, was inspired by his father's success and Estelle Reiner, Carl's wife of 65 years, who was a talented jazz singer in her own right. The dynasty is rounded out by George Shapiro, a respected manager and producer, and Jake and Romy Reiner, both accomplished actors. This illustrious family has been a cornerstone of American comedy, and their legacy will live on.
