LOS ANGELES, Feb. 14 (UPI) -- Actor and filmmaker Mel Brooks has been booked on Tuesday's edition of "Conan" to talk about his late friend and collaborator Sid Caesar, TBS said.

Caesar died this week at the age of 91.

Brooks, 87, is expected "to share his unique personal and professional stories about close friend Sid Caesar," the cable network said in a release Friday.

"Brooks, who famously worked with Caesar on such unforgettable comedies as 'Your Show of Shows,' will sit down with host Conan O'Brien for most of the hour to celebrate his friend's extraordinary legacy," TBS said.
