LEGENDARY comedian Mel Brooks appeared as a guest on last night’s The One Show and appeared to be left flummoxed by the eclectic mix of topics being discussed.
The 91-year-old, with typical razor-sharp wit, labelled the show ‘nuts’ as hosts Matt Baker and Alex Jones seamlessly segued from discussing toilet paper to an emotional film about a woman trying to reunite with her long lost father.
It’s standard fare from the early evening show, with swift links between two topics that have very little or even nothing to do with each other being commonplace.

It certainly amused Brooks, who was joined by Oscar winner Russell Crowe on the sofa.
Also on the show as guests were comedian Ross Noble and Birds of a Feather’s Lesley Joseph who were in fits of laughter at Brooks’ bemusement.
Crowe, who’s been on The One Show in the past, explained the presenters’ habit of jumping from one extreme to another, as Baker added: “We turn the page and we move on.”

Jones was left to put the show back on track, eventually introducing what turned out to be a very emotional feature.
Brooks was on the show to promote a new musical based on his hit film young Frankenstein.
The director of Blazing Saddles certainly said what most of us are thinking while watching the early evening show and made it into TV gold!
