Mel Brooks?

Will Finn said...

Yes indeed, it's Melvin Brooks.

I wish I had a cool personal story to share, but I've never met him. I saw him in person at a YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN reunion screening in Hollywood, and once I saw him getting into his car in the Amblin parking lot, but that's as far as I got. I saw yesterday that his 2000 Year Old Man recordings are being re-released this week.

Relevant post coming up tomorrow.

Wow, the Mel Brooks. Very cool. I first thought it was Roy E. Disney for some reason. Good cartooning, but don't start up as a caricaturist.
