Sid Caesar: The Works
Without Sid Caesar, comedy would have been a lot less funny. In 1949, television was an infant technology. No one knew how long or whether it was going to last at all. A 27-year-old Broadway star, along with a team of writers and performers who would become legendary, including Imogene Coca, Nanette Fabray, Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Larry Gelbart, Neil Simon, and Woody Allen, revolutionized sketch comedy by telling stories rooted in the human condition. They redefined television sketch comedy, and paved the way for generations to follow; Caesar's influence reverberating throughout "Saturday Night Live" (he hosted the show in 1983 and was named an honorary cast member), Reiner’s inspiration for "The Dick Van Dyke Show," Brooksfilms’ "My Favorite Year" and Neal Simon’s Broadway hit "Laughter on the 23rd Floor," to name a few examples. The five-DVD set, spanning 1950 to 2014, contains over 11 hours of fan favorites and previously unreleased material, as well as a 20-page book of history, rare photos, and notes, and many interviews and extras, including the 2014 Paley Center for Media Tribute Program with Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner and Billy Crystal.
