"Your Show of Shows" funnyman Carl Reiner is receiving a show of his own.

Reiner, who was co-host of "Your Show of Shows," wrote, directed and co-starred in "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and directed the movie hits "The Jerk" and "All of Me," is being honored at an Aug. 18 tribute at the Friars Club in Beverly Hills.

"Carl has had an extensive and impressive history in the entertainment industry and he deserves a very special night of his own. That's just what we plan to give him — traditional Friars Club-style," club president Irwin M. Schaeffer said.

Talk-show host Larry King, the Friars Club abbot, will serve as master of ceremonies and will be joined by Hal Linden, Dick Van Dyke, Larry Gelbart, Hal Kanter, Sid Caesar and Fyvish Finkel in the tributes.
