Sid Caesar

 

Heaven is a funnier place tonight for having Sid Caesar home.  The comic actor whose career helped to define comedy on television has passed away at the age of 91 according to his friend and fellow comic Carl Reiner.  Caesar’s career lasted the better part of a century moving from vaudeville, to radio, to television and film.  As the host of Your Show of Shows, he helped shape what would make generations laugh in their living room.  Lasting from 1950-1954, Your Show of Shows was 90 minutes of live sketch comedy in a medium that had never seen anything like it.  Suffice it to say, there is no Saturday Night Live without Your Show of Shows.  The saying that death comes in threes, really is a truism.  Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Shirley Temple and Sid Caesar.  Below is the obituary from Reuters wire service.
