The passing of Sid Caesar had me wanting to revisit his work, but it's sad how little of it is available on DVD. Just a couple out of print sketch compilations, now going for a few hundred dollars on Amazon. It's a shame no one tried releasing full-length shows. It's sad to think the work of one of the greatest television comedians of all time will practically be lost to the ages, as so little of it is out there for people to enjoy or discover for the first time.

I watched Airport 1975 yesterday in tribute to Sid Caesar, since a made an appearance in it. So long Sid, RIP.

I got the first box set of his work around 2000 and there was two others, but was unsure whether it had new shows or was merely the first box set repackaged. He had his own website that sold these sets -- a reprint of all of these would be certainly welcome, and above all, at a reasonable price (as these early sets were very expensive, compared to the content they had)

 

I took my set to a drinkers club of people who would have known Sid's work of the era and played it on the main tv -- none of Sid's shows played here in Australia, so it was all new, and everyone was amazed that it was all done live. Before long, everyone was laughing and was a huge hit on the night -- the fact that everyone was quietly getting loaded at the same time certainly made Sid and co's stay at the club that evening a very memorable one.

I tried ordering those sets, but they immediately cancelled the orders, saying they were out of stock. If anyone has any better luck, let us know.
