His film company, Brooksfilms Limited also produced critically acclaimed films such as The Elephant Man, The Fly, Frances, My Favorite Year, and 84 Charring Cross Road. For three successive seasons, 1997-1999 Mel Brooks won Emmy Awards for his role as Uncle Phil on the hit sitcom Mad About You. Brooks received three 2001 Tony Awards and two Grammy Awards for The Producers: the New Mel Brooks Musical, which ran on Broadway from 2001 to 2006.

In 2009 Mel Brooks received The Kennedy Center Honors, recognizing a lifetime of extraordinary contributions to American culture.

So much fun!

Love this podcast. It is expertly written and the performances are stellar across the board. The content is incredibly funny but also so very relevant for all age groups. As a parent I am so happy to hear a children's/young adult podcast that takes its audience seriously, and has both intelligence, heart and a solid, relatable story. Perfect timing for this to come out - and I, for one, vote Grandma for President!

Great for the kids

I listened to this with my kids, they loved it as well as me.
Unfortunately their Grandma rests in Heaven but I'm sure she would've loved it too.
Curious to see how it turns out.

Heartwarming and fun

I fell in love with this audioplay after the first episode. The storyline is so heartwarming and funny at the same time. I especially enjoyed, that the audioplay doesn’t take sides in these hard political times. It creates the perfect president - grandma! Great to listen to with your kids. I am excited for the next episodes!

This Is Gonna Be A Fun Listen!

What a cool idea: approaching politics from a kid's perspective and trying to navigate all the "blah blah National Budget blah blah Electoral College blah blah" (sorry, stole those lines from the story itself!). Really well written, acted and produced. The amount of effort in getting all these moving parts working together must've been tremendous. And obviously, SUCH a timely story. Can't wait for the next episode... will it predict the outcome of the "real" election? Let's find out!

Funny and informative

If the rest of the series is anything like this first episode, I'm in! I laughed, I learned, and I loved listening with my kids (8 and 10) Quality entertainment, and we sure can use it especially during these times.
