“Mel Brooks: Make a Noise" profiles the larger-than-life, yet very private comedy giant. He has never authorized a biography and has requested that his friends not talk about him, making his participation in this AMERICAN MASTERS film a genuine first. Features new interviews with Brooks, Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, Cloris Leachman, Carl Reiner and Joan Rivers.

AMERICAN MASTERS Mel Brooks: Make a Noise, Monday at 9 p.m. on PBS 6.

Watch Mel Brooks: Make a Noise on PBS. See more from American Masters.
