    Mel Brooks: The Mogul Who Created Spoofs!

    A Jewish by birth, Mel Brooks garnered acclaim for his parodies that made him an international star. He is the maker of some very famous and hilarious films like Space balls and Robin Hood: Men in tights.

    Brooks is a man of varied talents and has played with radio, TV, films and Broadway. He is an accomplished director who is also known to possess a few peculiarities. For instance, he poked fun at Hitler in many of his films which showed the funny side without insulting anyone. Also, he is a man who, we guess loves himself! He has appeared in most of his films and acted with élan.

    Though, a maker of parodies, Brooks has always made meaningful cinema. His work has never used any kind of profanity and has made the viewers laugh with joy.

    Mel Brooks’ resume is probably the only one of a kind resume that can boast of as many awards as can be imagined by the human mind!
