Pioneering TV Comedian Sid Caesar Dies

In his two most important shows, Your Show of Shows, (NBC) 1950-54, and Caesar’s Hour, (NBC) 1954-57, Caesar displayed remarkable skill in pantomime, satire, mimicry, dialect and sketch comedy. And he gathered a stable of young writers who went on to worldwide fame in their own right — including Carl Reiner, Neil Simon, Larry Gelbart and Woody Allen. He was 91.
