Personal Quote:

[on Sid Caesar] He was a saxophonist but had a sense of memory - where you pick up something and mime it. We wanted to do a funny sketch with it. Sid pretended to open up a jar of olives in his hand. So, without knowing it, he screwed the lid back on and put it down on the floor. That's the greatest sense memory Iive ever seen. See more »

Trivia:

Served in the Army in 1942 and was trained as a radio operator. He later was assigned to Maurice Evans' Special Entertainment Unit, which included Werner Klemperer, and toured the South Pacific as a comedian in GI reviews. See more »
