Mel Brooks, also known as Melvin Kaminsky, was born in Brooklyn, New York and has an estimated net worth of $85 million dollars. Mel Brooks began working as a stand-up comic for resorts in the Catskills as a summer job during high school. After serving in the US Army during World War II, he returned to comedy work as a writer, rather than as a performer. Since then, he has gone on to write a number of smash-hit comedies, as well as performing in or directing many of them. His most widely known works include, "The Producers", "Blazing Saddles", "Young Frankenstein", "History of the World: Part I", "Spaceballs", "Robin Hood: Men in Tights", and "Dracula: Dead and Loving It". He has won a Grammy, a Tony, an Emmy, and an Oscar. In addition to his writing and performing work, he is also a successful producer, and has produced such films as "The Elephant Man", "The Fly", and "84 Charing Cross Road".
Mel Brooks (born Melvin Kaminsky; June 28, 1926) is an American film director, screenwriter, composer, lyricist, comedian, actor and producer. He is best known as a creator of broad film farces and comic parodies. He began his career as a stand-up comic and as 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 most well known films include The Producers, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, History of the World, Part I and Spaceballs. More recently he has 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.
Brooks is a member of the short list of entertainers with the distinction of having won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony award. Three of his films ranked in the American Film Institute's list of the top 100 comedy films of all-time: Blazing Saddles at number 6, The Producers at number 11, and Young Frankenstein at number 13.
Brooks was born Melvin Kaminsky in Brooklyn, New York, a son of Maximilian Kaminsky and his wife Kate (n'ee Brookman). His father's family were German Jews from the Baltic Sea port of Danzig (the modern Polish port of Gdansk); his mother's family were Ukrainian Jews from Kiev. He had three older brothers, Irving, Lenny and Bernie. His father died of kidney disease when Brooks was only two years old. Brooks has said of his father's death that "there's an outrage there. I may be angry at God, or at the world, for that. And I'm sure a lot of my comedy is based on anger and hostility. Growing up in Williamsburg, I learned to clothe it in comedy to spare myself problems - like a punch in the face."
Brooks was a small, sickly boy who was often bull
