Lets talk about Brooks

200px-Mel_Brooks.jpg

This man is a comedic genius of the 60s, 70s, 80s, and late 90s. He is responsible for The Producers, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, History of the World, Part I, Spaceballs, and Robin Hood: Men in Tights. He is currently working as the producer of Young Frankenstein on Broadway and Spaceballs: The Animated Series. He also just turned 83 on June 28th.

Mel married Anne Bancroft in 1964 and she gave birth to his 4th child, a son.

This man (who kind of looks like a young Billy Crystal, or a Billy Crystal with more hair at the very least) is known for his books:

world_war_z_book_cover.jpg

I'm told they're a must read for fans of Zombies, and the latter of the two is being made into a movie by Brad Pitt (and Paramount Pictures).

Now I'm really just a fan of the Patriarch but learning that the guy who wrote those two books (which I see talked about from time to time on here) is Mel Brooks' spawn kind of has me a little more compelled to go locate and read either or both of them.

    those zombie books are the worst in the world. worst. in. the. world.

    I'd rather read Moon People and its 12 sequels than read another paragraph of anything by that hack

    Because everything must be held up to the standards of high literature.

    They are fucking funny. It's a joke haha get it!

    I guess you can't read. I have yet to read the books, I included him in the thread because he is Mel's son and happens to be relatively well known, I've seen the books mentioned on here before. Figured I'd give people a choice.
