Movie Reviews

Absolutely hilarious
10/10/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When I was growing up, my dad used to talk about "Your Show of Shows" all the time. The way he carried on, you'd think it was some sort of religious experience to get to watch Sid Caesar. Well, he was right, and these tapes prove it. First of all, what other show in the history of television had such talented writers beind it? We're talking Neil Simon, Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Larry Gelbart... all more or less at the same time! Second, and this can't be emphasized enough, Sid is, hands down, the most talented comedic actor I've ever seen. His double-talk routines, in which he pretends to speak German or Italian, are unbelievable, and his one-man stage routines, such as "Five-Dollar Date," are breathtaking--and something you'd never see today. You must buy or rent this three-tape series. Not everything is spot-on, but the funny stuff is truly, transcendently funny. One complaint: How come no pickle sketch? Guess I'll have to wait till the next series is released..."
FUNNY!!

"The comedy is timeless! The new interviews with Caesar, Woody Allan, Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks etc. put the tapes in perfect context. My favorite sketch was the parody of "this Is your Life" when Harry Morris literally swung from Caesars body for half the sketch. I also loved the Three singing Haircuts! Gimme more tapes. Gimme Gimme Gimme. (And by the way, I'm not of that generation, I'm 27 years old.)"
Comic Genius!

"TV's Golden Age of comedy is lovingly preserved on these digitally remastered videos, and they're as hilarious today as they were in the '50s. What a welcome change from what passes as "comedy" today...no edginess, vulgarity or racy innuendo...just laugh out loud funny stuff delivered with superb timing. The "foreign language" skits are masterpieces of doubletalk, and Caesar's solo "Five Dollar Date" is a marvel of rapid-fire patter to rival anything that Danny Kaye ever did. This collector's set is a keeper!"

"I don't know much about "Your of Shows", but I bought a set for my grandmother's birthday, and she hasn't stopped talking about it. This is the first time I've EVER bought a gift for one of my Grandparents that they ACTUALLY LIKED. Thanks for the brownie points, Sid!"
