The divine musical comedy of Sid Caesar

Sid Caesar

Most people associate Victor Borge with comedic antics at the piano, but few know of Sid Caesar’s artistry at the grand in pantomime.

A devotee of TV’sYour Show of Shows, starring Sid, Imogene Coca, Carl Reiner, and Howard Morris, I recently took a journey down memory lane, revisiting three of my favorite musically framed skits that were ingeniously created by immensely gifted writers, Mel Brooks, Neil Simon, Mel Tolkin Larry Gelbart, among others.
