You should read the Courage to change by Dennis Wholley. It has Sid's story on his addictions. What a remarkable man.

RIP Sid Caesar, Mr. Show of Shows. What a comedy legacy: Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Neil Simon. A hint of Caesar in almost all our laughter.

I remember the show too. I didn't know he was an addict. RIP dear Sid.

Had the honor of watching him perform live in the '90's. Already way past his prime, but what a class act. Thanks, Sid.
