Sid Caesar, 91, has recently passed on February 12. Sid was a great comedian from the mid 20th century and one of the biggest stars from the golden age of comedy. Then how come I’ve never seen much of his work until now?
I, like the majority of the digital age generation, receive just about all of my entertainment from the internet. However, when I first saw a clip of Sid Caesar, I knew I was going to need to watch more, even if I pay! After watching the few ones available on Youtube, I thought more about why I’ve never heard of him until his death put him in the headlines. It’s because the online community doesn’t do enough to share his works!
The older generations that grew up with Sid Caesar already know he is a legend so his great capacity of comedy isn’t much news. But we need to keep his work current. It’s the least we can do for Caesar’s dedication to his projects. Who else has the dedication to create an entirely new 90 minute show , memorize it, and then perform it every week for continuous years?
So let’s show our respect for this great comedy legend and share his work on the internet.
