Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, October 18, 2021

History of the World, Part I is finally getting a Part II, with Hulu ordering a variety series followup to the classic Mel Brooks comedy film, Variety has learned exclusively. History of the World, Part II is described as a sequel to the 1981 film. The film was made up of segments set during different periods of world history. Among those was the Stone Age, Ancient Rome, and the French Revolution. Like most of Brooks' work, it also featured musical numbers, including one about the Spanish Inquisition and, of course, "Jews in Space."

Mel Brooks will have actually lived a significant part of that history, so he should make an excellent writer/EP on this.

Bruce that joke is so 2008. I know this because I joined a good chunk of America in making those jokes for hours on end.

Blazing Saddles is one of the funniest movies ever made.

I think Mel Brooks said it couldn't be made today.

Mel Brooks is a genius. Get Smart to The Producers (inc. Springtime For Hitler) to Blazing Saddles to inspiring F Troop (and the 'Hekawi - heck are we? - Indian tribe).
