Mel Brooks: Make a Noise 1x52

After 60 years in show business, Mel Brooks has earned more major awards than any other living entertainer; he is one of 14 EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) winners. Yet, the comedy giant has energetically avoided a documentary profile being made, even issuing an informal gag order on his friends, until now. Mel Brooks: Make a Noise features new interviews with Brooks, his friends and colleagues, including Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, Cloris Leachman, Joan Rivers, Tracey Ullman, and his close friend, with whom he created The 2000 Year Old Man, Carl Reiner. The film showcases Brooks’ early years in the creative beginnings of live television with Sid Caesar on Your Show of Shows, his successful films Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, High Anxiety, and Spaceballs, and the groundbreaking Broadway musical version of his first film, The Producers.
