DjangoStonereaver: The man is not just a national treasure, he's a world treasure.


I love that guy so much. As far as I'm concerned he holds 3 of the 'top 5 comedy' slots of all time. (I will not denigrate any of them by trying to compare them against each other; they are simply 'top 5,' not 'funniest ever,' etc. In no particular order: History of the world pt 1, blazing saddles, and Young Frankenstein.

StoPPeRmobile: DjangoStonereaver: ertznay: The Twelve Chairs is one I really like, but seems to be totally unknown.

We saw it for English class when I was a sophmore in high school.

As funny as it was, it is also proof that, had he wanted to make straight drama he'd have been almost as good
as he was doing comedy, I think.

Comedy is hard. See Shakespeare.


Dying is easy, comedy is hard

I have a copy of the raw audio of an interview Mr. Brooks did for a major news organization a few weeks
before he got THE PRODUCERS won its Tony awards.

It not only is pretty much a "DVD commentary" for the original Broadway cast, it also has some of the
funniest stuff I have ever heard, bar none, made up on the spot due to spontaneous technical glitches
that he riffed off.

The man is not just a national treasure, he's a world treasure.
