Throwback Thursday Comedy Special: Sid Caesar and Imogene Coca in The Bus to Riverdale


Today's nostalgia trip takes us back 64 years to 1954 and a classic episode from Your Show of Shows, the 90 minute weekly sketch comedy series featuring Sid Caesar, Imogene Coca, and Howard Morris.

This episode shows the talent of Howard Morris, who is less well remembered today than the rest of the cast of Your Show of Shows, but only because he stood in the company of giants like Sid Caesar,  Imogene Coca (and Carl Reiner, who is not in this sketch).

In this episode, Sid and Imogene are waiting for their bus in a bus station when Howard approaches them and asks which bus goes to Riverdale. The ensuing chaos is a prime example of the ensemble comedy that made the program a must to watch every week.

Enjoy!
