Here comes a great blast from the past that deserves a special mention – basically because I’ve been looking for it for so long 🙂 In December 1983, Mel Brooks was featured in a television special called “An Audience with Mel Brooks”, featuring skits and stand-up – and some unintentionally cringe-worthy audience questions, by the likes of Julie Walters and Helen Mirren. The latter segment, in which Mirren and Jonathan Pryce challenge Brooks for a Hamlet competition, has been added to the archive. Screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery as well.
