Bring the family to see the legendary Mel Brooks live June 12 at the opulent Chicago Theatre, and stay at the nearby and affordable Chicago Lake Shore Hotel!

Mel Brooks will screen his classic comedy film, “Blazing Saddles” (remember football great turned actor Alex Carras punching out a horse?) on the giant screen of the Chicago Theatre and take questions from the audience about his storied career!

Mel Brooks has been delighting audiences for decades. He is one of the few artists to have won a Grammy, a Tony, an Emmy and an Oscar! His feature film “The Producers” ranks as one of the ten funniest movies of all times. “The Producers” went on to become a smash hit on Broadway starring Mathew Broderick and Nathan Lane. “Young Frankenstein,” also on the list of top ten funniest movies, has now become a hit Broadway musical.

Mel Brooks starred in the hit TV show “Mad About You,” and he wrote and produced the hilarious “Get Smart.” He received a 2009 Kennedy Center Award, was the subject of an “American Masters” documentary on PBS, and was the 41st recipient of the American Film Institute Award for a body of work.
