Saluting Sid

"Ten from 'Your Show of Shows'" was my introduction to the amazing art of Sid Caesar (although I did see "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" when it hit the Ridgefield Playhouse in 1964); I first saw him in person in "Last of the Red Hot Lovers" at Connecticut's Candlewood Playhouse, a tour of which he claimed to remember very little thanks to his booze consumption at the time. Next time it was at Proctors in Schenectady, in 1988, and I filed this report.
