Mel Brooks is an American actor, comedian and comedy writer.


Born Melvin Kaminsky in Brooklyn, New York, he served in the United States Army and later became a performing musician, eventually finding his niche as a comedian and writer, gaining recognition for his sketch The 2000 Year Old Man, helping to create the series Get Smart. In 1968, he directed and wrote the succesful comedy The Producers.

Brooks was best known from then on as a writer and director of spoof comedies including Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein, several of which he acted in. He also wrote music and lyrics for the majority of his own films, and adapted both The Producers and Young Frankenstein as musicals.


Though he primarily wrote musicals rather than starring in them, Brooks still had a number of singing roles to his name, including playing the voice of a Stormtrooper in The Producers (and each subsequent version) and performing the title song in High Anxiety.

Brooks also appeared in several roles in History of the World: Part I, including the singing role of Torquemada the Inquisitor, and sang in his role as Frederick Bronski in To Be or Not to Be.
