Great moments on talk shows: Mel Brooks on Dick Cavett

I’d embed the video but the NYT only wants you to click on over. Do it.

I love this for many reasons:

1. Mel Brooks is one of my heroes. I have a kiddush cup for him at every Seder. Mel, you’re welcome on tHGS anytime.

2. There is no desk.

3. Love those 1971 outfits.

5. Dick Cavett gives him a piece of goat cheese from his lunch. This is a gorgeous moment and super grounding. A Jew eating goat cheese from goyishe Cavett musing on a Yugoslavian dictator. Awesome.
