    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.

    It's the 3 most important things in business.
    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.

    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.

    He was a funny man and he deserves to RIP.
