The comedians – both widowers – are also trying to maintain their mood (and royalties).

Aside from jokes, Brooks’ son Max admitted from his marriage to late actress Anne Bancroft that his famous father was struggling with the situation.

“I think there is probably currently no one in America who finds it more difficult to distance himself socially than my father,” said the younger Brooks. “He lives from crowds. He lives from friends and it is brutally difficult for him to sit behind glass at home at the moment. But he does what he has to do because he understands that.”

Brooks and Reiner also offered their perspective as Jewish men who had seen World War II.

“Well, we’ve won it before,” said Reiner. “There was a guy named Hitler. And we’re still there and he’s not!”

“We can get through this stuff; it’s a no-brainer,” said Brooks. “We just have to grin and bear it.”
