History is Made!"
viewers of ABC's "Whose Line is it Anyway" were given a very
special treat on the evening of November twenty-first, as Sid
Caesar made a triumphant return to primetime television. The
79-year-old comedy icon made his first appearance in two decades,
and did not disappoint. Sid received a standing ovation and
the respect and admiration of the "Whose Line" cast, as well
as, audiences everywhere. After the episode aired we were flooded
by messages wishing Sid well. Here are a few letters, which
we would like to share:
Caesar; Saw you on "Whose Line Is It", and you are BETTER THAN
EVER. Your Japanese is so good we wanted Sushi later. Happy
-Jack & Dee Kestler
was truly a treat to watch the legendary Mr. Caesar on last
week's episode of "Whose Line". Foreign Film Dub was the perfect
skit to show his true talent to us. Even at age 79, he can still
make me laugh. He outdid Drew Carey, but he gave him a good
challenge. I'm proud to say how much he has brought joy to my
life with his brilliant comedic wit. Even in the 21st century,
MR. SID CAESAR is an American treasure. !!! The memories are
always with me from the golden days of TV to his appearances
in film and variety programs and they are truly treasured in
my heart. God Bless You!!!
Caesar, I saw you Thursday night on Whose Line Is It Anyway,
and you proved that the truly great ones never loose it. I've
loved you since I was a kid and watched you on Your Show of
Shows. You made me laugh then and you still make me laugh. You
have brought so much happiness to so many including myself,
and for that I would like to say THANK YOU and may God bless
you with many more years of health and happiness. We love you.
-Philip J. Di Marco
Sid, Thank you so much for the entertainment you have provided
me from "Your Show Of Shows" to last night's "Whose Line Is
It?" I saw you in person in San Francisco in "Little Me" the
next night after you had broken your arm and did the play in
a cast. You are living proof that "the show must go on!" To
me and many others you are one of the greatest comedians ever.
-Bob Ramsdell Magalia, CA
was great seeing you on television again. My girlfriend and
I were talking about the Greats and you are one of them...please
rethink your retirement and show these young bubs how it's done.
to see you on "Whose Line . . ." You're a National Treasure!
You've been my idol my entire life and once again made me laugh.
Job well done! Happy belated birthday! :-)
Sid: Watched you with Drew Carey last night on "Whose Line Is
It Anyway?" You were terrific! Your linguistic skills are superb!
I know a few people who can do a pretty good imitation of one
foreign language, but the way you went between French and German
and Russian was a kick! Totally believable because it was so
well done. You certainly made chopping onions and celery for
our Thanksgiving dressing a whole lot more fun! Happy Birthday
and many more. I hope we see more of you in the near future.
-Margaret W. Roberts
a joy it was to see you on the Drew Carey show this evening.
It brought back so many wonderful memories of my family, all
of which are all gone now. We would sit around the television
and laugh till we had tears in our eyes. Each week we waited
for your show. Seeing you tonight made my heart feel warm. We
had love in our home and you were part of it. I hope you have
had as much happiness in your life as you have spread throughout
the world. You certainly deserve it. God Bless You.
Sid Cesar a very Happy Birthday! I very much enjoyed seeing
you on Drew Carey's show. Hearing you speak "French", "German",
etc. was just a great walk down memory lane for me. Remembering
when I was a young person babysitting and watching your wonderful
show. TV has never been able to match what you and your group
of actors did in the '50's. Thanks again and wishing you good
was truly touched by all of the well wishes he has received
after the show aired. At 79-years-old, Sid proved that his wit
and timing is just as sharp as it's ever been and that he still
remains one of the funniest men on earth. Thank you so much
for all your love and support. Check back soon for Sid's personal
response to his fans.
