VIDEO: 'President' Mel Brooks Visits JIMMY KIMMEL
After an embarrassing fall from a horse this week, the President of the small nation of Turkmenistan agreed to speak live with late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel last night on ABC. Check out the exclusive interview between Kimmel and the world leader (played hilariously by Mel Brooks!)
Brooks was last represented on Broadway by Young Frankenstein. The musical opened on Broadway on November 8, 2007 to mixed reviews. The Broadway production closed on January 4, 2009 after 30 previews and 484 performances.
Prior to that, Brooks scored big with The Producers, which opened on Broadway on April 19, 2001, starring Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, and ran for 2,502 performances, winning a record-breaking 12 Tony Awards.
