Mel Brooks, the funniest human alive, is having a moment. Or maybe he’s always having a moment?
Anyway, The History of the World, Part II debuts later this year on Hulu, and set your calendars accordingly but closer to home, The Producers will be in production at the Argenta Community Theater in downtown North Little Rock with the first show set for Feb. 22.

Michael Klucher, below, is Leo Bloom and Klucher is a teacher at North Little Rock High School and also serves as the scene designer for the school’s very good drama department.
