In the late sixties Rob Reiner and Larry Bishop spearheaded an improv group in Los Angeles called The Session, which included Richard Dreyfuss and others. Reiner and Bishop formed a duo out of that group and went on tour. Here they are doing press for a show at The Hungry i, courtesy of the San Francisco Bay Area Television Archive. Within a year, Reiner would find himself onstage at The Committee. Reiner provided more background about this time in his 2011 interview with A.V. Club which you can find here.

I briefly spoke with Richard Dreyfuss this week about The Session and he said that Albert Brooks played with them. I don’t know if Brooks was officially in the group, or just played with them occasionally.
thanks, would love to know more about the session. I know the Reiners and Einsteins were pretty close so it doesnt surpise me that Brooks might have collaborated with The Session. – Sam
