'Mel Brooks Strikes Back': Comedy Legend Reflects On Career In Upcoming Special (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"You're talking to a somewhat serious intellectual character here -- with potty humor."

Mel Brooks will look back on his remarkable career as a comedy writer, director, producer, actor and legend in an upcoming HBO special appropriately called, "Mel Brooks Strikes Back!" (for the "Space Balls" fans out there).

Watch a preview for the special above wherein Brooks jokes about his life with BBC Creative Director ALan Yentob, who moderated the special before a live audience at the Geffen Theater in Westwood, California.

"Mel Brooks Strikes Back!" airs Monday, Dec. 10 at 9:00 EST on HBO. Brooks fans can also check out "The Incredible Mel Brooks," a new collection of his best performances in a DVD box set coming out Nov. 13.
