Mel Brooks is unique. My kids were laughing at his 2,000 Year Old Man routines when they were 7 or 8, and are still laughing at them in their 30's. Let alone Blazing Saddles. Let alone the Producers. Let alone Young Frankenstein. Even his not-so-terrific efforts are amusin g (e.g., Spaceballs).
Caught some of this documentary last night after a long day at work. Was tired as a dog, but couldn't bring myself to turn it off before it ended. History of the World Part I, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein...actor, director, composer, screenwriter...married to Anne Bancroft(!)...hard to grasp just how funny/prolific Brooks has been over his career. And he seems like a real mensch, too.
American Masters was so, so, so great last night. I kept the game on the iPad while we flipped the tv over to it, if anyone hasn't seen it you should definitely check it out.
The Woody one from last year is still my favorite, though.
Oh, and by the way, I just last week told some Bible study students (high schoolers) about possible origins of religion, and pulled our the "somebody's bigger than Phil" bit. They were hysterical.
