About Mel Brooks

American film director, screenwriter, composer, lyricist, comedian, actor and producer, Mel Brooks has an estimated net worth of $85 million. Born Melvin Kaminsky to a Russian Jewish family in Brooklyn, New York, he was one of the very few people to win an Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony award. After serving in the U.S. Army during World War II, he worked as a standup comic at resorts in the Catskills and started writing comedy. Along with Woody Allen, Neil Simon, and others, he wrote for Sid Caesar’s Your Show of Shows, which later became Caesar’s Hour. Teaming up with fellow staff writer Carl Reiner, he developed the award-winning “2000 Year Old Man” comedy skit, which led to several recordings, television appearances, and a 1998 Grammy. After serving in the US Army during World War II, he returned to comedy work as a writer, rather than as a performer. Since then, he has gone on to write a number of smash-hit comedies, as well as performing in or directing many of them. His most widely known works include, “The Producers”, “Blazing Saddles”, “Young Frankenstein”, “History of the World: Part I”, “Spaceballs”, “Robin Hood: Men in Tights”, and “Dracula: Dead and Loving It”. In addition to his writing and performing work, he is also a successful producer, and has produced such films as “The Elephant Man”, “The Fly”, and “84 Charing Cross Road”.
