Since the passing of Sid Caesar in February, we've been reminiscing and paying tribute to his comedic genius.
Caesar left a treasure trove of video clips of some of his funniest character portrayals and skits from his own Your Show of Shows and Caesar's Hour and from his appearances with sidekick Carl Reiner on the Ed Sullivan Show and other TV specials.
We've already run some of his most famous comedy routines and we'll be tapping into the collection for more of them from time to time.
Today we're visiting with one of Sid's most endearing characters, the wisecracking and loopy Viennese archaelogy professor, interviewed by the persistent and straight-talking Carl Reiner.
