Sid Caesar net worth: Sid Caesar was an American comic and performer who had a net worth of $10 million. Sid Caesar was born Isaac Sidney Caesar on September 8, 1922 in Yonkers, New York. Sid Caesar was probably most famed for hosting two initiating televisions programs, “Your Show of Shows” and “Caesar’s Hour”. Caesar’s Hour ran three seasons from 1954 — 1957. During his career he was nominated for 11 Emmys. He was nominated at least once every year from 1951 to 1958. His first of two total Emmy triumphs came in 1952, for Best Actor.

#Fact
1Infamous in his earlier years for an explosive temper and being quick to anger, one possibly apocryphal story has Caesar arguing with a cab driver over the fare and getting angrier by the moment. When the cabbie said "I'll remember you, pal", Caesar exploded, yelling "I'll give you something to remember! Remember birth?" and then proceeded to reach into the cab, grab the cabbie by the neck and pull him out of the cab though the window of the driver's door.
2Following his death, he was interred at Mount Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.
3Inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame in 1985.
4Awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7000 Hollywood Blvd. on February 8, 1960.
5He was the son of Jewish immigrants, Ida (née Raphael), from Russia, and Max Caesar, from Poland. The two ran a 24-hour luncheonette. Sid would help his parents by waiting on tables, and it was during this time that he learned to mimic many of the accents he would use throughout his long career.
6Despite his apparent fluency in many languages, in reality he can only speak English and Yiddish.
7At age 14 he first went to the Catskills as a saxophonist with Mike Cifficello's Swingtime Six and would also occasionally perform in sketches.
8Arrived in New York City penniless and tried to join the musician's union (later he audited classes at the famed Juilliard School of Music).
9Has played at the Vacationland Hotel in Swan Lake in the Catskills during his salad days. There, under the tutelage of Don Appel, the resort's social director, Caesar played in the band and learned to perform comedy, doing three shows a week.
10Made his Broadway debut performing in the 1948 revue "Make Mine Manhattan", which featured "The Five Dollar Date", one of Sid's first original pieces in which he sang, acted, double-talked, pantomimed and wrote the music.
11Caesar's appearance in his first series The Admiral Broadway Revue (1949) with Imogene Coca was a huge hit with television audiences. Simultaneously broadcast on NBC and the Dumont network, its sponsor, Admiral Corporation, an appliance company, could not keep up with the demand for its new television sets, so the show was canceled on account of its runaway success.
12In his book "Caesar's Hours", he describes the essence of his comedy as "working both sides of the street", the deliberate blending of comedy and pathos. His idols were Charles Chaplin, Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Buster Keaton and W.C. Fields.
13He gave up alcohol "cold turkey". His autobiography, "Where Have I Been", published in 1983 and his second book, "Caesar's Hours", both chronicle his struggle to overcome alcoholism and barbiturates.
14He was assigned as a musician in the Coast Guard, taking part in the service show "Tars and Spars", where producer Max Liebman overheard him improvising comedy routines among the band members, and switched him over to comedy. Sid later made his film debut in the adaptation of his stage hit, Tars and Spars (1946).
15His father, Max Caesar, owned a restaurant in Yonkers, New York.
16Best remembered on Your Show of Shows (1950) and the movies Grease (1978) and Grease 2 (1982).
17Was nominated for Broadway's 1963 Tony Award as Best Actor (Musical) for "Little Me".
18His son Rick Caesar attended Yale University.
19His children are Michele ("Shelly"), Rick (born February 18, 1952) and Karen (born in 1956).
20Biography in: "Who's Who in Comedy" by Ronald L. Smith. Pg. 84-86. New York: Facts on File, 1992. ISBN 0816023387
21Received the Sylvania Award in 1958 for his work in television.
22Also won Best Comedy Team (with Imogene Coca) in 1953.
23Voted the United States' Best Comedian by Motion Picture Daily's TV poll in 1951 and 1952.
24Studied saxophone at the Julliard School of Music before becoming an actor.

#Quote
1When I did comedy I made fun of myself. If there was a buffoon, I played the buffoon. And people looked at me and said, "Gee, that's like Uncle David", or "That's like a friend of mine.". And they related through that. I didn't make fun of them. I made fun of me.
2The trouble with telling a good story is that it invariably reminds the other fellow of a dull one.
3The things I see now on TV and in movies are so outlandish. Kids doing rude things with pies! And the language that they use! It's being outrageous for the sake of being outrageous. I can't watch it. It turns me off.
4After all those years of doing a live, hour-and-a-half show every week, I've got nothing more I need to prove.
