THR keeps the streak alive

For its most recent Roundtable, THR assembled a panel with an average age of 83 -- Dick Cavett, Mel Brooks, Phyllis Diller, Tim Conway and Carl Reiner -- to discuss comedy.  Something's wrong with this effort, I'm just not sure which part was the screw up.  If they just wanted to get a bunch of comics together to shoot the shit, someone needs to tell The Hollywood Reporter that it's no longer 1972.   If it's a chance to talk with comedy legends, someone needs to let them know minority comics exist too. And some have been known to be funny. Pathetic.

Not Pictured: Bill Cosby, Paul Mooney, Cheech & Chong, Whoopi Goldberg, etc.
