Throwback Thursday Comedy Special: Sid Caesar Plays French Waiter Serving Ed Sullivan and Shirley Bassey

In 1971 Sid Caesar played the role of a waiter in a French restaurant serving Ed Sullivan and Shirley Bassey who want to order a quick dinner while on a break from rehearsing the Ed Sullivan Show.

With only a half hour for dinner, they start to order hamburgers and soda pop, but the waiter keeps insisting that they order chateaubriand, duck a l'orange, or pheasant under glass, with an appropriately paired wine.

When the waiter (a young Sid Caesar) brings the order into the kitchen, the French chef is insulted by the order and takes it out on Caesar. It's a very funny bit of sketch comedy.
