I saw this about a month ago and I completely forgot to mention it here. It’s a documentary about the history of Jewish humor and humors meaning in Judaism. They interview a ton of Jewish comedians( although no Mel Brooks) and ask them how Judaism has shaped their routine. https://m.imdb.com/title/tt2378587/
Documentary recommendation: When Jews were funny.
