Product Details


“Delightful . . . A wonderful addition to a seminal career, All About Me! is not only a worthy summary of all Mel Brooks has achieved but also a lasting testament to the laughs he’s had along the way.”San Francisco Chronicle
“The book . . . covers [Brooks’s] ninety-five years of life with a tummler’s panache.”The New Yorker

“Full of both hilarity and wisdom.”—Adam Grant, “15 Inspiring Books to Read Over the Holidays”

“If you’re a Mel Brooks fan, All About Me! is the book you’ve been waiting for.”The AV Club

“This book has everything you would ever want Mel Brooks to tell you, and at 480 pages it is still not enough! Pure joy.”—Judd Apatow

“Mel Brooks is Mount Hilarious. All any of us can do is look up and feel small and not as funny in comparison.”—Marc Maron

“No one ever made me laugh harder than Mel Brooks. There was no more magical couple than Mel and Anne Bancroft. I treasure every memory with him and with them.”—Norman Lear

“There are people who have great stories and there are people that tell great stories. Mel is that precious combination of a person with amazing stories who happens to be one of the greatest storytellers of all time. Lucky for him? Lucky for us!”—Sarah Silverman

“If you are holding the great Mel Brooks’s memoir and you are wasting time reading this blurb, you’re an idiot.”—Conan O’Brien

“This marvelous book by the great man himself will give you a mega-dose of sheer reading pleasure. It’s the personal, delightfully revealing life story of a giant comic talent. All About Me! delivers a much-needed, therapeutic supply of full-out laughter.”—Dick Cavett

All About Me! isn’t a typical comedy memoir, and why would it be? Mel is a singular talent, still witty, still sharp, and still zinging us after all these years. These stories thread a hilarious narrative that is also profound and touching. Reading this, you’ll learn very quickly why Mel Brooks is a king of comedy.”—Wanda Sykes

“Not since the Bible have I read anything so powerful and poignant. And to boot—it’s a lot funnier!”—M. Brooks

“In this laugh-a-minute memoir, actor and producer Brooks looks back at his rise through Hollywood, gleefully doling out punch lines along the way. . . . Studded with snickering asides and rapid-fire jokes, Brooks’s account of making it in show biz is just as sidesplitting as his movies.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Brooks is legendary in comedy, TV, and film, and his upbeat memoir is just the sort of fun book many readers are seeking.”Booklist
