Description - Caesar's Hours by Sid Caesar
It is no exaggeration to say that without Sid Caesar, life in America would have been a lot less funny. He was the star and guiding force behind Your Show of Shows and Caesar's Hour, two of the most innovative programs in the Golden Age of Television, and the writers and stars of those shows went on to create the plays, movies, and sitcoms that we now think of as classic American comedy. So many of our greatest comedy writers-Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Neil Simon, Larry Gelbart, Woody Allen-were part of Sid Caesar's creative troupe. Caesar's Hours is Sid Caesar's touching, wise, lively, and funny artistic autobiography, his account of how these great routines were fashioned and performed, and the interactions that gave birth to them. He takes us inside his family, the famed writers' room, the rehearsal studios, and onto the stage itself, where some of the funniest moments in television history came to life.
