Join acclaimed funnyman Mel Brooks on an outrageous trip through history – and learn what “really” happened. Travel from a crazy spoof of 2001 to the Roman Empire, where Brooks plays a stand-up philosopher in Caesar’s Palace, to the French Revolution, where Brooks is King Louis XVI, and the Spanish inquisition, where this time, singing monks and swimming nuns perform fabulous musical numbers!

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: History of the World: Part I may not have enough comedic inspiration to merit a Part II, but the sporadic cleverness of these anachronistic skits are still a testament to Mel Brooks' gift for farce.
