Biography

Brooklyn, New York City, New York, USA
Melvin James Kaminsky was born on June 28th, 1926 in Brooklyn, New York, to Russian Jewish immigrants, Kate and James Kaminsky. His father died when Mel was twelve years old, and he has said that his angry humor stems from that event. As a young boy, he learned how to play the drums.

After brief education, he served in WWII, and afterwards got a job playing the drums at nightclubs in the Catskills. Brooks eventually started a comedy act and also worked in radio and as Master Entertainer at Grossinger's Resort before going to television. Read more...
