Conan O’Brien Pays Tribute to Comedy Legend Sid Caesar


The great Sid Caesar passed away yesterday, so last night Conan saved a tiny moment of his show to recognize Caesar for inspiring him to get into comedy before he really understood what comedy was. It’s a brief but beautiful moment for a man who has influenced Conan just as much as every other late night comedy show host working today, and hopefully in the future there will be a talk show host who credits Conan’s string dance as their earliest comedy inspiration.
