Sid Steals the Show
22 August 2006 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Sid Caesar was about 80 when he appeared as the special guest on the "Salute to American Television" episode of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" hosted by Drew Carey. Both cast and audience obviously adored the pioneer star of television, giving him standing ovations both at the beginning and the end of his appearance.

In a skit that clearly was right up the comedian's alley, Sid and Drew, seated at a table, improvised dialog for a foreign language spy thriller. On cue from Brad Sherwood, the two would speak in gibberish that sounded like various foreign languages (French, German, Russian, Japanese), and their lines would be "translanted" by Colin Mochrie and Wayne Brady. Sid delivered his impromptu lines with verve, humor, and a level of acting and facial expression seldom seen on this slapstick comedy.

Sid walked slowly and with the aid of a cane, but it was obvious to this viewer that he is still and always will be the one to honor and adore for all that he did to bring comedy and class to the medium of television when it was in its infancy. (DVDs and VHS tapes of many of the pioneer's early shows are available at his web site, www.sidcaesar.com.)
