Sid Caesar - Your Show of Shows

Photo Details

A picture of Sid Caesar, born Isaac Sidney Caesar to Jewish parents (from Poland and Russia) in Yonkers, New York. He was perhaps best known for the 1950's television show "Your Show of Shows" in which he starred with Carl Reiner, Howard Morris, and Imogene Coca. For those who don't remember "Your Show of Shows", it was a variety show starring these fabulous comedians as well as musical guests and famous actors (Burgess Meredith hosted the premier).

After "Your Show of Shows" ended in 1954, he had his own variety hour on tv (Caesar's Hour) and then went on to star in many television shows and movies. He also wrote several books.

Born in Yonkers on September 8, 1922, he died February 12, 2014 in Beverly Hills, California. He left us a lifetime of laughter.
