Mel Brooks is known as the grand master of movie satire and is one of Hollywood s most successful filmmakers. He was born Melvin Kaminsky to a Russian

Mel Brooks is known as the grand master of movie satire and is one of Hollywood's most successful filmmakers. He was born Melvin Kaminsky to a Russian Jewish family on June 28, 1926, in Brooklyn, NY. In 1964 he married actress Anne Bancroft.
Brooks' career began in the forties in the military, while serving as a combat engineer in the US Army. He was known to respond to German propaganda broadcasts by doing an Al Jolson imitation of "Toot Toot Tootsie."
After completing his military service, Brooks began working as a stand-up comedian in a string of resorts in the Catskills, and changed his name to avoid confusion with the musician Max Kaminsky. On the resort scene Brooks gained little income but earned great personal satisfaction. He was known for his odd antics, including performing on-the-spot monologues and routines, pretending to insult both his co-workers and the guests, and even ending one show by jumping fully clothed into a swimming pool.
After years of stand-up comedy, Brooks decided it was time to try television. Applying for the writing staff of TV comedian Sid Caesar, Brooks literally fell to his knees and sang a song about himself. As a writer for Sid Caesar's classic television variety program "The Admiral Broadway Revue" which later became "Your Show of Shows," and much later "Caesar's Hour," Brooks worked with such greats as Neil Simon, Woody Allen and Carl Reiner. At this time he received his first major commendation - a Writing Emmy for "The Sid Caesar, Imogen Coca, Carl Reiner, Howard Morris Special." Though the work was grueling and at times dangerous, Brooks saw it as the best formal education that any comedian could have.

Executive summary: Blazing Saddles Military service: U.S. Army, WWII (corporal) Mel Brooks joined the Army when he was 17, became a combat engineer, where one of his tasks was defusing landmines. Brooks fought at the Battle of the Bulge. After the war, Brooks did stand-up comedy on the "Borscht Belt", resorts in the Catskill mountains. When the audience was not laughing enough, Brooks was known to run off stage and jump in the swimming pool, fully clothed, then resume telling jokes sopping wet. That usually won the crowd over. Brooks wrote for several of network television's earliest comedies and variety shows, including Sid Caesar 's Your Show of Shows , where he met and meshed with Carl Reiner New Faces of 1952 , a Broadway comedy revue that ran well into 1953.

Mel Brooks was born in New York City June 28, 1926 as Melvin Kaminsky. It's almost impossible to name a more successful comedy writer/director than Mel Brooks. Brooks was hired by Dan Melnick to create a spy spoof for television in 1964. Brooks helped create many of the concepts behind Get Smart, and is responsible for naming the lead character Max, which is also the name of his son. Brooks, who also co-wrote a few episodes in the first season, only stayed for the very beginning of Get Smart. He used the money from the show to allow him time to work on his first feature film, The Producers. He won an Academy Award for Best Screenplay for that movie and his career took off after that. Currently, Brooks is the president of Brooksfilms. He recently did a mini-tour with Carl Reiner performing their 2,000 Year Old Man characters. He also won three Emmy Awards for his role as Uncle Phil in Mad About You. Brooks is married to Anne Bancroft. Television

  • Mel Brooks The comedy impresario currently steamrolling Broadway owes "Blazing Saddles," fart humor and his dancing Hitler to a red rubber ball. By Mary Elizabeth Williams Sondheim didn't do it. Bernstein didn't, either. Rodgers and Hammerstein put together didn't come close. No, the creator of the Broadway show that smashed all the box office records is the man who gave us "Spaceballs." The maestro who revitalized the Great White Way is the guy who brought fart jokes to major motion pictures. And the impresario whose show netted an unprecedented 12 Tony awards was also the only winner to ever thank Hitler in his acceptance speech. Like his hit musical "The Producers," Mel Brooks is an unlikely combination of innocent optimism, bawdy irreverence and unbridled chutzpah. And if, at age 75, Brooks is the bright new darling of the American theater, it's because he has spent a lifetime brazenly getting in our faces and shamelessly prodding us to laugh, and because, for all the alleged comedy in our must-see TV and Tom Green world, we're starved for real humor. We need Mel Brooks to make us laugh as much as he needs to make us laugh.
