I think we all could do with a bit more Mel Brooks in our lives. And HBO apparently agrees.
The network will air a special next month called Mel Brooks Strikes Back, featuring an onstage interview of the 86-year-old comedy legend by the BBC’s Alan Yentob. Brooks will discuss his long career, which will include clips from such classic films as “The Producers,” “Blazing Saddles” and “Young Frankenstein.”
Brooks participated in a similar special on HBO last year, Mel Brooks and Dick Cavett together again, and I probably could’ve watched it for ten hours. The new show debuts Dec. 10.
