He was one of those rare people to go beyond celebrity and attain the status of an icon. RIP.

He made it to 91; that's a damn good run. He was definitely one of television's greats.

Of course, the Rule of Three. The question is, does he end what was started with Phillip Seymour Hoffman, or was Hoffman the end of a previous run?

Also, about 93% of people are going, "Who the creosoted fuck is Sid Caesar?" (& spelling his name wrong when they type it) because no one knows what comedy is anymore.

Or where it began, on T.V. at least. RIP

Re: RIP Sid Caesar.

I always wished I had been around to see the early days of television, when it was new and experimental. From what I've seen in documentaries, it would have been a lot of fun to experience. Caesar was one of the key elements in shaping TV comedy and, through that influence, film comedy too, clear through to today. A true innovator and legend.

Caesar wasn't just an amazing performer in his own right-he collected a stable of writers any show runner would sacrifice goats for.
Mel Brooks
Carl Reiner
Neil Simon
Larry Gelbart
Mel Tolkis
Woody Allen
He was a funny man and he deserves to RIP.
