Mel Brooks


This program profiles the larger-than-life yet very private comedy giant. He has never authorized a biography and has requested that his friends not talk about him, making his participation in this AMERICAN MASTERS special a genuine first. Interviews with Brooks himself and stars Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, Cloris Leachman, Carl Reiner, Joan Rivers among others are featured.
