He rose from humble beginnings to become one of the most popular entertainers of his day. His landmark Your Show of Shows launched the careers of some of comedy's biggest names. Sid Caesar is a true show biz giant. Like Milton Berle and Ed Sullivan, he was one of television's first superstars, but he originally planned to find success as a musician, not an actor. In fact, in his teens, he played sax with some of New York City's hottest big bands. See how he made the jump from the bandstand to TV stardom in this revealing profile made with Caesar's full cooperation. In exclusive interviews, the cast and crew of Your Show of Shows - including Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Imogene Coca and Neil Simon - recall what it was like working with Caesar in his heyday. And the madcap comic reveals the long descent into drugs, alcohol and depression that took him decades to overcome.With classic clips of some of the funniest moments in TV history, BIOGRAPHY invites you to share in the genius of Sid Caesar.
