10 Mel Brooks Quotes That Should Inspire You

Mel Brooks is the kind of guy that seems to excel in producing crude and unyielding humor, but he’s undeniably funny and honest in his delivery. It’s hard not to laugh at his material since it doesn’t so much break down societal norms and mores but reaches out and slaps them in the face as a way of challenging them to be better or accept something different. A lot of people would seek to condemn his brand of humor as something that’s just crass and doesn’t belong in cinema but thankfully those folks have been overruled for a number of years since Mel Brooks has been one of the funniest guys in Hollywood for decades. His sense of humor might seem a little off kilter at times but one thing that can’t be denied by any means is that he knows how to present material in a way that makes people laugh.

Check your sensitivity at the door if you’re watching a Mel Brooks movie, you’ll be glad you did.
