Mel Brooks In One-Off Event for Charity

Published on November 03, 2006 with No Comments

An audience with Mel BrooksComedy legend Mel Brooks is coming to London for a special one-off event in aid of Leukaemia Research.

The 80-year-old who went from Catskills stand-up to Hollywood star will be in town on November 15 at the Criterion Theatre, where he will headline “An audience with Mel Brooks” and appear with the BBC’s creative director Alan Yentob.

The charity hopes to raise more than £100,000 from the event.

The evening will be a mix of interview between Yentob and Brooks as well as questions from the audience.

This will be the third time that Yentob and Brooks have publically worked together. The first time was in the early 1980s, when as a young TV presenter, Yentob flew to Hollywood to interview Brooks for the Arena TV series and the second time was a few years ago as a follow up to their first encounter for a special Mel Brooks night.

Tickets for the night cost £150 or for £250 ticket holders will also be invited to a champagne reception.
