Mel Brooks records robocall for his great-nephew running for NY State Senate


(JTA) — If you live on Long Island and your phone rings, answer it — it might be Mel Brooks.

The legendary comedian recorded a robocall for his great-nephew, Todd Kaminsky, who is running for State Senate in New York’s 9th District, on the South Shore of Long Island. Kaminsky is a Democrat running for re-election; he won the seat in a special election in April to replace Republican Dean Skelos, who was removed from office following his conviction on federal corruption charges.

The charming clip was uploaded Wednesday to the Soundcloud streaming service.
