    My mom and I were boarding a flight to Vegas with Joan and my mom's weird black dripping makeup (you can see a pic on my channel) rendered her speechless. That was a funny moment.

    Mel Brooks knew to not be down in the dumps over someone passing and the best way to grieve is laughter

  • Silversurfer

    When he was dressed up as Joan, he looked like Bette Midler!

  • skaman125

    That look of horror Conan shot when Brooks pulls out the comb.

    Mel Brooks is an American treasure. I will be sad when he passes on, but grateful for his hilarious, and refreshingly not politically correct, body of work.

      @Omega47 I was going to say, in the old clip he has normal digits. In the interview with Conan, deffo not normal. Classic Mel.

    • soulerflare7

      You look incredible . I just subscribed .

    • Omega47

      It's fake. He does it as a joke to troll people. He first used it when getting his hand prints in Hollywood in front of the Chinese theater. Look at his other interviews, normal hand.

    • dirtydan

      Holy shit...I thought I was drunk! I had to pause and count the fingers 3 times beforing heading to the comments

    Joan Rivers would never make it today because you all know the people are so sensitive in such a whiny cry babies when it comes to anything that even slightly offensive buddy. It's like people take everything out of context just so they can cry and be victims or something.

      Lol when Joan was pregnant with Melissa she wasnt allowed to say the word "pregnant". It was deemed too risque. We freaked out about Elvis's hips, we steamrolled Beatles albums, we thought D&D and pokemon were going to summon the devil. People aren't much different than they were years ago. We just have social media now.

      It was a joke, because he got his star on the walk of fame before or after this and thought, it would be funny 😁

    every time team coco posts a video of an older celebrity people think they died... I literally went straight to Twitter to look for some posts... nothing... is the news still so fresh that it didn't reach twitter yet? is this just a random clip randomly uploaded? I NEED ANSWERS

    • abcded

      This was way back in 2014

  • arrosive

    Whenever they upload clips with old celebrities, I have to immediately Google them to make sure nothing happened.

      Obnoxiously Charming

      @Devil'sAdvocate idk you but its a bad start to look so dumb out the gate. To get to where you are you'd have to be so oblivious, so dense you couldnt notice the fact that it's everyone else who's salty because I don't know who this old man is. You'd have to not notice how jovial my tone is. And you'd have to not notice the fact I've never seen blazin saddles which is the whole point of the thread.... If you want people to think you're an absolute moron who can't grasp the basics. You nailed it. You got the black thing right though. So good on you. I mean it's my pfp but you seem like you need all the points you can get. Little more advice. The more lol's the lamer the joke and the sadder the man. Try to go for lol not lololol you kind of expose yourself

    • Devil'sAdvocate

      @Pitman Thor he's black and angry about Blazing Saddles lololol.

      @Obnoxiously Charming no queens here. It's not. And yes? Are u like 12. These comments would make more sense.

      @Pitman Thor because the world is much bigger than your experiences and it's very easy to not know the space balls guy because of all the comedic art there is to enjoy. Any more questions? Please do not forget to pick up your bunched up panties before leaving the drama queen corner
