"SiriusXM's Town Hall with Mel Brooks," which will take place on Thursday, April 18, will air on the limited-run channel "Mel Brooks Radio," channel 96 (Laugh USA), on Saturday, April 27 at 10:00 am ET. For rebroadcast times, please visit www.siriusxm.com/townhall.

"I grew up listening to the radio, so it holds a special place in my heart. I'm thrilled to be on SiriusXM and only wish I could have listened to 'Mel Brooks Radio' when I was a kid, but of course physics got in the way," said Mel Brooks.

"We know we are on firm ground describing Mel Brooks as a comic genius of legendary proportions and we are honored to have him meet our subscribers in an intimate setting," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. "What makes it even better is having Judd Apatow, one of the most successful directors of comic films in the last decade, moderate the special. Bringing these two comic stars together is the kind of great chemistry we look for with our 'Town Hall' series."

The special is part of SiriusXM's "Town Hall" series, intimate gatherings with iconic musicians, entertainers and figures and a studio audience of SiriusXM listeners. Previous "SiriusXM Town Hall" specials have featured Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson, Billy Crystal, Tom Petty, Tony Bennett, Quentin Tarantino, Carol Burnett, Taylor Swift, Aerosmith, Coldplay, Ringo Starr, Roger Waters, Gregg Allman, Crosby, Stills and Nash and the surviving members of Nirvana.
