Mel Brooks opens up about his youthful days in Brooklyn, his time served in World War II and his triumphs on the big screen, the small screen and The Great White Way. Plus, Mel sets Marc up with Carl Reiner.

Carl_reiner__mel_brooks_melbrooksandcarlreiner1_small Mel Brooks. Nothing we write here can do this justice. So just listen to Mel and Marc take you through the life of a legend, from his youthful days in Brooklyn and his time served in World War II to his triumphs on the big screen, the small screen and The Great White Way. It’s Mel Brooks. What more is there to say?

And then, with a little help from Mel, Marc is able to sit down for a chat with another legend of comedy, Carl Reiner. They talk about the origins of the 2000 Year Old Man and Carl’s journey from writing to acting to directing.

But the best part of both interviews happens at the end, off mic. Marc will tell that story at the end of the episode.
