Comedy Legend Sid Caesar Passed Away, Conan O’Brien Gives Tribute
Comedy legend Sid Caesar, whose name you might have been brought on so many comedy podcasts or you might be a thorough enough of a comedy nerd to know in 2014 or you might have actually seen in your youth, has passed away.
Conan O’Brien even took some time on Conan to pay tribute to Sid Caesar, citing him as an inspiration to do comedy.
So, if you’re unfamiliar, you should go look up Sid Caesar now.

13) Saw a “comic” point out noises instead of telling jokes or do ANYTHING because apparently we weren’t on board with his weirdness, which he didn’t approve of, and then cut and run right after his set. If he was trying to make sure that people won’t come to his shows where his name is on the bill, he’s doing a damn good job.
