Throwback Thursday Comedy Special: Sid Caesar in "The Commuters: Small Apartment"


When Your Show of Shows was canceled in 1954, Sid Caesar started a new show called Caesar's Hour. The popular series of sketches called The Hickenloopers, about a bickering married couple, was recast as The Commuters, with Nanette Fabray playing Sid's wife as Imogene Coca had played in The Hickenloopers.

In this 1955 episode, "The Small Apartment," Bob and Nan Victor (Sid Caesar and Nanette Fabray) try to host a dinner party for three couples in a city apartment that's far too small for the task. Meanwhile, their guests continually needle them about their spacious suburban homes.
Enjoy!
