1. “Sid Caesar R.I.P.” Comedian of Comedians From TV’s Early Days Dies at 91.
“By the late 1950s, he was off the air, a victim of changing tastes as well as personal problems. He made a triumphant comeback on Broadway in 1962, playing seven characters in ’Little Me,’ a musical created by Cy Coleman, Carolyn Leigh and Mr. Simon. (A concert revival of ’Little Me’ was part of the Encores! series at City Center this month.) A year later, Mr. Caesar held his own among comedy heavyweights like Milton Berle, Mickey Rooney and Jonathan Winters in the hit movie ’It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.’ But his problems soon got the better of him, and his comeback was short-lived.”
