Watch this film and see the trail blazed for all comedy shows that followed.
25 October 2000 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

Even if they only showed one sketch, this would be one of the funniest films ever. Billy Crystal was right. Sid Caesar was the Chaplin of television, and this film gives you the opportunity to see him at his peak, as well as the work of a writing staff that was to comedy what the 1927 Yankees were to baseball. The takeoff of "This is Your Life" provided us with the funniest ten minutes in the history of the human race (it was even funnier than Richard Nixon's resignation speech!!!).
