Sid Caesar Dead: Comedy Titan and Rob's Boyhood Idol Was 91

He starred in the 1950s sketch classics "Your Show of Shows" and "Caesar's Hour" and influenced the likes of Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Neil Simon and Woody Allen.
Sid Caesar, the intelligent and yet nonsensical comic who forever changed the course of television with his groundbreaking 1950s live Saturday night variety shows Your Show of Shows and Caesar's Hour, has died. He was 91. His friend, Carl Reiner, confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Inarguably he was the greatest single monologist and skit comedian we ever had," Reiner said in a statement to THR. "Television owes him a debt of gratitude for his pioneering work and the great shows he gave us all. Render onto Caesar what is his due. He deserves real applause from the American people."
Caesar, who died Wednesday at his longtime home in the Trousdale Estates section of Beverly Hills after a brief illness, was known for his physicality, improvisation, mimicry and his whimsical signature, the double-talk.

"Albert, do you REALLY think you are old enough to know what love is?"
"I must be Pa. I love you, I have for a long time."
