Throwback Thursday Comedy Special: Mel Brooks Impersonates Bogart, Cagney, Sinatra on Dick Cavett Show
Mel Brooks is famous for producing, directing, acting, and doing stand-up comedy, but we don't usually think of him as a singer or impersonator.
Back in 1970 Mel appeared on The Dick Cavett Show doing impressions of Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney, and Frank Sinatra. The Sinatra bit was an impersonation of Frank singing America the Beautiful.
So let's set the clock back 47 years to see Mel in his younger days doing a few celebrity impressions.
