Mel Brooks will host Sundance Channel’s Oy! to the World: A Mel Brooks Christmas Marathon on Christmas Day. Throughout the day, he will introduce and offer insights into a selection of his best movies as only he can. The typically modest comic genius said, in a statement to the network, “I want to thank Sundance Channel for giving the world the best Christmas gift ever—23.5 hours of me!”
Oy! to the World will feature such films as The Producers 9both 1968 and 2005 versions), History of the World, Part 1 and Young Frankenstein. The marathon begins at 6/5C, Christmas morning with The Producers (2005) and winds up with Robin Hood: Men in Tights at 3:15/2:15C the next morning.
