Drawing: Mel Brooks

The legendary actor, writer, director, producer, composer and all round funny man, Mel Brooks is 91 and still going strong. He’s in London with the musical version of his classic 1974 film YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, which after a short UK tour, debuted on the West End at the Garrick Theatre last week. The original Broadway production ran at the Hilton Theatre from November 2007 to January 2009, collecting three Tony nominations. Mel is one of only twelve people who have won the EGOT winners of the four main annual American entertainment competitive category awards; the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. Mel also created and wrote one of my all time favourite TV shows, GET SMART with Buck Henry. He has been in London for a while with rehearsals and previews at the theatre, where he frequents most days, but I haven’t managed to catch-up with him yet, but did leave this sketch at his Hotel and it came back instantly, signed and dedicated.

  1. Hi, Mark, I really love your Mel Brooks illustration from October 2017 and would love to use it in a layout in a 20-page workbook for theater education for our local schools. Please let me know via email if this would be possible and what agreements need to be met, aside from proper crediting, of course!
