Melvin James "Mel" Brooks (né Kaminsky, born June 28, 1926) is an American film director, screenwriter, comedian, actor, producer, composer, and songwriter.

He is best known as a creator of broad film farces and comic parodies. He began his career as a comic and a writer for the early TV variety show ''Your Show of Shows''. He became well known as part of the comedy duo with Carl Reiner, ''The 2000 Year Old Man''. In middle age he became one of the most successful film directors of the 1970s, with many of his films being among the top ten money makers of the year that they were released. His best known films include ''The Producers'', ''The Twelve Chairs'', ''Blazing Saddles'', ''Young Frankenstein'', ''Silent Movie'', ''High Anxiety'', ''History of the World, Part I'', ''Spaceballs'' and ''Robin Hood: Men in Tights''. More recently, he had a smash hit on Broadway with the musical adaptation of his first film, ''The Producers''. He was married to the actress Anne Bancroft from 1964 until her death in 2005.

In 2001, having previously won an Emmy, a Grammy, and an Oscar, he joined a small list of EGOT winners with his Tony award for ''The Producers''. He received a Kennedy Center Honor in 2009, the 41st AFI Life Achievement Award in June 2013, and a British Film Institute Fellowship in March 2015. Three of his films ranked in the American Film Institute's list of the top 100 comedy films of all-time, all of which ranked in the top 20 of the list: ''Blazing Saddles'' at number 6, ''The Producers'' at number 11, and ''Young Frankenstein'' at number 13.
