Comedy legend Mel Brooks will publish his new memoir this fall.

Brooks was born Melvin Kaminsky in 1926 and grew up in tenement in Williamsburg, at the time the city’s poorest East European-Jewish immigrant neighborhood.

Brooks first became known to the public in the 1960s, when Carl Reiner put out a series of comedy albums in which brooks impersonated a 2,000-year-old man. Brooks wrote and directed “The Producers” in 1967, which he won the Best Original Screenplay Oscar.

Ballantine Books announced Wednesday that Brooks memoir” All About Me! My remarkable Life in Show Business” will come out Nov 30.

Brooks is expected to share all the highlights of his love affair with show business.

“It was joyous and at times bittersweet writing this book and reliving the peaks and valleys of my incredible journey from Brooklyn to Hollywood to Broadway,” Brooks said. “I hope fans of comedy will get a kick out of the stories behind my work, and really enjoy taking this remarkable ride with me.”
