RoyH (Burl) Sid Caesar dies, 91 (18) RE: Sid Caesar dies, 91 14 Feb 14


Mike, I agree with you about Sid Ceasar, huge in America, little known over here. Another case of this was Fred Allen, gifted comedian who made little impact iin the UK. It was possible to hear his 'Allen's Alley' show during wartime courtesy of AFN. Another similar UK-obscure comic was Myron Cohen, a master joke teller. We missed out on these people but then, what would the Americans have made of Tommy Handley, Frankie Howerd? Or the greatest comic in the world, Chic Murray?
