Mel Brooks News, Read All About It!

I flipped on the tele earlier this week and stumbled upon Mel on the Late Late show with James Corden. Now, the first time I was introduced to James Corden was via Into The Woods… and I was impressed… but damn, this is the way to have Mel Brooks as a guest. Forget the canned interview questions! This was one of the freshest, funnest, Mel appearances in a long time. More of this please! How about a Your Show of Shows with Mel and various guests?!?!?! If you missed it, head on over to youtube for a few of the segments. Not to be missed!

Also Jerrod Carmichael… natural fit for Spaceballs 2!

The world can survive with less films from Mel Brooks if the result is more of these beautifully captured personal stories.

Thank you Mel and Conan.

So, do your soul a favor and block out 90 minutes this week.

Turn off the phone, hang the “do not disturb” sign on the door, turn down the lights, pour yourself a glass of fine wine or aged single malt scotch and indulge in the finer things of life that only get better with age.

A preview is up for the Mel Brooks episode of  Serious Jibber-Jabber with Conan O’Brien.

Mel looks great!

I love Conan, his sense of humor really brings out unique material in his interviews and you can see that in this very short preview. There are also some other videos from Conan’s primary talk show. Check ’em out while you’re waiting until the 21st.

The episode will be available for viewing on-line 10/21/2013 via the following link

Wow to think I missed this great clip. Anyway maybe I didn’t miss it… but watching it again it’s as fresh as the first time! Who wouldn’t want to have such great friends through life! Mel & Carl forever! Of course, kudos to Jerry for paying homage to his predecessors!

Lots of Mel Brooks PR stuff these days… cross your fingers that one eventually will be about a return to film.

This week he’ll be receiving a life time achievement award from the American Film Institute, presented to him by Martin Scorsese. If you’re in LA I believe the ceremony will take place the evening of June 6th at the Dolby Theatre (formerly the Kodak Theatre) at Hollywood & Highland.

In the meantime check out these fun little interview:
