A true television legend has died. Sid Caesar, who influenced generations of comedy writers and performers, passed away earlier today in Los Angeles. He was 91 years old.
Born to immigrant parents in 1922, Caesar made his first television appearance on Milton Berle’s Texaco Star Theater in the late 40’s. He soon met NBC president Pat Weaver and landed his first TV series, The Admiral Broadway Revue, with Imogene Coca.
