Trailer Watch: Mel on Mel in HBO's 'Mel Brooks Strikes Back!'

Check out the new trailer for HBO's upcoming "Mel Brooks Strikes Back!," a lively extended interview between the legendary comedy writer-director and BBC creative director Alan Yentob. "What was it like growing up as a Jew in Brooklyn?" Yentob asks. Brooks' reply: "I don't think there was anybody but Jews in Brooklyn!"

The hour-long film, which debuts on HBO on December 10 at 9pm, reviews Brooks' career as a writer, director, producer, composer, failed ballet dancer (!) and comedian, all onstage at UCLA's Geffen Theater in front of a live audience.
