Spaceballs, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles. Every time I rewatch one of Mel Brooks’ films, I’m brought back to my grandfather’s house, where my siblings and I would sit in the living room, drinking hot chocolate, and demand a rewind so that we could watch the movie again, immediately. Seriously, let’s all just watch Robin Hood: Men in Tights tonight. We deserve it.
In honor of the funniest man alive, check out a nice, long interview with Brooks on Conan O’Brien’s Serious Jibber-Jabber.
