Washington, D.C.'s Kennedy Center will present a screening of Mel Brooks' celebrated comedy "Blazing Saddles," followed by a Q & A with the multi-talented star, live on stage. The Kennedy Center Honoree will share behind-the-scenes stories from his life and career.

Back in the Saddle Again will take place Feb. 6, 2016, in the Concert Hall and is part of the Comedy at the Kennedy Center series.
