Personal Quote:

When I did comedy I made fun of myself. If there was a buffoon, I played the buffoon. And people looked at me and said, "Gee, that's like Uncle David", or "That's like a friend of mine.". And they related through that. I didn't make fun of them. I made fun of me. See more »


In his book "Caesar's Hours", he describes the essence of his comedy as "working both sides of the street", the deliberate blending of comedy and pathos. His idols were Charles Chaplin, Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Buster Keaton and W.C. Fields. See more »
