Who would like to help me bid a final farewell to the TV comic pioneer Sid Caesar?
Caesar and other classic funnymen like Jackie Gleason and Milton Berle made the late ‘40s, ‘50s and early ‘60s the golden age of TV, of which you can get a good taste in the very funny 1982 movie “My Favorite Year” (in it, Joe Bologna portrays a Caesar-like character King Kaiser). Or you watch the real thing on YouTube. Comedy like Caesar’s and Gleason’s wouldn’t play today—but boy, “how sweet it was” back in the days when my dad insisted we be the first in our neighborhood to own a TV (black & white and tiny screened, of course). If you remember the great Sid Caesar, please help me give him a good sendoff.
