Comedy legend Carl Reiner, 'Dick Van Dyke Show' creator, dead at 98

He passed away Monday night of natural causes.

Carl Reiner's assistant, Judy Nagy, confirmed to ABC News his passing last night of natural causes at his home in Beverly Hills.

Born Carlton Reiner on March 20, 1922, in New York City, Reiner showed an early interest in acting as a teenager. After serving as a radio operator in World War II, he began performing comedy at a resort in New Hampshire and later landed on Broadway in several musicals.

Reiner and Martin teamed up on three more films in the 1980s, "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid," "The Man with Two Brains" and "All of Me."

In his later years, Reiner returned to the screen, making guest appearances on "Mad About You" and "Beggars and Choosers," and co-starring in the remake of the Rat Pack classic, "Ocean's Eleven" and the film's two sequels.

Reiner won nine Emmy Awards and one Grammy Award during his career.
