Father of TV sketch comedy Sid Caesar dies at 91 PDF Print
Wednesday, February 12, 2014 9:23 PM

Sid CaesarNEW YORK (AP) — Milton Berle was the funnyman whose pioneering presence in the nation’s living rooms earned him the title Mr. Television.

But Berle echoed the past. His wildly popular wisecracks and cavorting were repurposed from his burlesque days for the brand-new miracle of TV.


Sid Caesar was different. Arriving on Berle’s heels in 1949, Caesar was the future of TV comedy — a future that was evergreen and, with his death on Wednesday at 91, is certain to survive him. To put it simply: Caesar invented TV sketch comedy and gave it stature as a funhouse mirror of the everyday.
