MEL BROOKS: LIVE AT THE GEFFEN
January 31, 2015  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
For his third HBO special, Mel Brooks drops the Q&A format and does stand-up instead, singing songs, telling jokes and unfurling some of his favorite Hollywood stories. It looks like Brooks has been doing standup all his life – but he stopped about 70 years ago. I guess some things you just never unlearn – it’s like riding a penny farthing. For a new interview with Mel Brooks – the fourth he’s given to TV Worth Watching over the years – see Bianculli’s Blog.
