Sid Caesar

Recommended Posts

Comedian Sid Caesar, 84, is looking kind of rough. Any of you heard of him? He was in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World!"

 

Movie to be on Turner Classic Movies Saturday at 8pm eastern US.

It would depend on how Western you are. Are you in Omelet territory?

 

 

Surely you've heard of the Western Omelet :)

 

Zippity doo dah....visitate this location for help deciphering your timeage.

 

World Time Zones

 

Or....

 

 

Time Clock

 

 

 

Perhaps all this mention of Sid is because his cohort back on his Television show back int he 1950s, Janet Blair departed the stage last month at the age of 85.

 

 

Speaking of cohorts....how's Carl Reiner doing these days? Reiner turned 85 just yesterday.....

I know I brought Sid up at one point or another... ahhh... here it is: Sid

 

I don't think that Sid has looked that great in the last 5-6 years or so. He certainly hasn't aged gracefully - I don't know if he's in bad health though - some people just look like hell.

I had a quick look at your list, not very good, eh? Only one (to my knowledge) dead out of eleven.

 

Must do better, see me after class

That list was drawn up in Dec'04. I'm sure you've scored a few more hits since then?

Very bad list indeed - all survive except poor Al - that's what he gets for lying about his age.

News from the Larry Gelbert memorial evening...

 

Perhaps the most touching moment came from Sid Caesar. I'll say this as delicately as I can: The great Caesar is not in great shape. He is frail and largely confined to a wheelchair. Unable to get up on stage, he delivered his speech from the front row of the audience, helped to his feet by an aide.

 

Edit - I should have known he'd have his own thread somewhere: http://www.deathlist.net/forums/index.php?...5&hl=Caesar . Mods, please merge

In the 1950's Superman TV show, newspaper boss Perry White would frequently exclaim, "Great Caesar's ghost!" Not sure that is well-enough known for deadline purposes. So, maybe we should go with, "I come to bury Caesar", (and praise the committee for picking him).
