Dick Van Dyke Celebrates His 96th Birthday

It's hard to get any better than an absolute legend and icon in the comedy world, in the television world, in the writing world, in the dancing world, and in the movie world. If you think you can name someone more talented in more areas than Dick Van Dyke, feel free to do so! I'll wait.

They really don't make celebrities like they used to! You just can't find a modern-day equivalent to the jack of all trades Dick Van Dyke, who's celebrating a huge milestone this year!

Dick Van Dyke is a Hollywood legend.

Best known for his performances in Bye Bye Birdie and Mary Poppins as well as his hugely successful television comedy show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Dick has been a staple in Hollywood since the '40s!

Dick has won five Emmys, a Tony, a Grammy, was inducted into the Television Hall Of Fame, and received the SAG Life Achievement Award, so it's safe to say he's a pretty big deal.

Dick was born on December 13, 1925.

That means that this year, the titan of comedy is turning 96 years old! It really goes to show that his comedy and film appearances were truly timeless!

It's incredible that we've had over 80 years of entertainment from Dick, and we hope that his 96th year is just as blessed as all his others have been so far!

Happy birthday, Dick!

I loved him in Mary Poppins and felt incredibly touched by his appearance in the 2018 film Mary Poppins Returns, personally, and always feel charmed by his magnetic stage presence!
