Mel Brooks: Make a Noise will make you laugh out loud a lot!
May 20th, 2013 under Mel Brooks, PBS. [ Comments: none ]


If you are a huge fan of Mel Brooks like me, then American Master’s Mel Brooks: Make a Noise is a must watch for you tonight at 9p on PBS.
The 90 minute special takes a look at Brooks’ illustrious career with the comedic genius doing long sit down interview about his life and work. Not only do we hear him talk about his life and his movies in the present, we get the opportunity to see him talk about both with past interviews throughout his long amazing career. We also get to hear from the people (Carl Reiner and his son Rob Reiner, Nathan Lane, Cloris Leachman, Matthew Broderick and so many more) who he has worked with and what they think makes him so special. When you hear his late wife Anne Bancroft talk about how magical their marriage is and how they met, it will bring a tear to your eye. But believe me there are plenty of more laughs during the 90 minute retrospect that includes interviews from today and yesteryear along with clips from his television shows and movies.
The show starts off with Mel Brooks talking about what got him interested in show business. Then he talks about his first role at just 15, and let’s just say it didn’t go well and there is a good reason why it didn’t work for him. Then we start to hear about how he got his start in the biz and working with Sid Caesar on Your Show of Shows. He next talks about the struggles of making Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein. We also find out how some of the classic scenes of his movies came about. For example Gene Wilder’s freak out scene in The Producers was thanks to having coffee after a long day of work, something he very rarely drank.
There are so many interesting tidbits in the American Masters special, that you are going to want to watch Mel Brooks: Make a Noise tonight at 9p on PBS from the beginning until the end because you don’t want to miss a single reveal of his comedic genius mind.
And if you can’t get enough of this history of Mel Brooks: Part 1 and want to watch it again and again? Then you can own the DVD tomorrow from Shout Factory and it is yours to enjoy whenever you want.

Mel Brooks replaces himself on Broadway
February 22nd, 2007 under Broadway, Mel Brooks. [ Comments: none ]

Bialystock and Bloom are bidding farewell to Broadway. The Producers will play its final performance at the St. James Theatre on Sunday, April 22 after 33 preview and 2,502 regular performances. Mel Brooks' next musical, Young Frankenstein, will be the next tenant at the theater. "The last six years working on this show have been pure joy for me," Brooks said in a statement. "There is not a single person who has ever been involved with this production to whom I am not gratefully indebted to for their talent, devotion and support during the run of The Producers."

Broadway

There were rumors that Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick were going to reprise their roles one last time, wonder if now that they announced the closing date they will announce that too?
