HBO Will Air Comedy Special 'Mel Brooks Strikes Back!' on December 10th

In the immortal words of Max Bialystock, "I picked the wrong play, the wrong director, the wrong cast. Where did I go right?" A month after Shout! Factory releases its epic "The Incredible Mel Brooks: An Irresistible Collection of Unhinged Comedy" DVD/CD box set, "Mel Brooks Strikes Back!" will make its debut on HBO on Monday, December 10th at 9pm, a special filmed in front of a live audience at the Geffen Theater in Westwood, CA.

The show features Brooks in conversation with Alan Yentob, the BBC's creative director, discussing his career as a writer, director, actor, producer, composer, failed ballet dancer and comedian, and will include clips from "Your Show of Shows," a Brooks and Carl Reiner "2000 Year Old Man" routine, "The Producer," "Blazing Saddles" and "High Anxiety," as well as footage of Brooks performing the song "Retreat" with collaborator Ronny Graham.

This will mark HBO's second Brooks special -- the premium network received an Emmy nomination for 2011's "Mel Brooks and Dick Cavett Together Again." "Mel Brooks Strikes Back!" is produced by Steve Haberman and Rudy DeLuca.

Update: check out the trailer below.
