Description: As the 2000 Year Old Man says, "Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die." And who knows comedy better than his creator, Mel Brooks. Brooks has never participated in a film biography before, but he agreed to do it for the PBS show "American Masters." 92Y is presenting the first New York screening of this new documentary and, to celebrate Joy Behar will interview Mel Brooks (by satellite – he will be in Los Angeles). Joining the conversation in New York will be Susan Stroman, director of the hit Broadway musical of The Producers and Robert Trachtenberg, the director of the PBS biography. Find out everything you wanted to know about the beloved comedian, filmmaker and writer and then hear from the master himself! Via Satellite.
