NEW YORK (AP) — Mel Brooks has seemingly done it all in his illustrious show biz career. But there’s one thing he’s tackled only recently — a one-man show.

Brooks will star in his first solo show Monday at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles. It’s being billed as an “an introspective retrospective.”

The sold-out show will have only one performance.

The 87-year-old writer and director of comedy classics including “The Producers,” ”Blazing Saddles,” ”Young Frankenstein” and “History of the World: Part I” has won Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards.
