Sid Caesar 100 -- September 8, 2022

When I was young I knew Sid Caesar from It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.  Later, I read about then saw Ten From Your Show of Shows, a collection of kinescopes from his great television show.  I enjoyed it.  I began to learn about all the famous people who had written for the show, like Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, and Mel Tolkin.  He burned out from the pressure of live television and wasn't seen much while I was growing up.  When Caesar became sober, I saw him in more movies, like Silent Movie.  Imogene Coca was his frequent co-star.
