Your Show of Shows is considered one of television’s best (and most groundbreaking) programs of all time, but that is just part of the reason why Sid Caesar was a creative trailblazer. Shout! Factory’s Sid Caesar: The Works, which comes out as a 5-DVD set on August 14, spans over 11 hours of Caesar’s work, including previously unreleased material. Throughout his career Caesar collaborated with such comic stalwarts as Imogene Coca, Nanette Fabray, Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Larry Gelbart, Neil Simon and Woody Allen, and the set will feature footage from The Admiral Broadway Review, Your Show of Shows, and Caesar’s Hour. A 20-page book along with the 2014 Paley Center for Media Tribute Program is also featured in the collection.
TV and comic buffs who order Sid Caesar: The Works via ShoutFactory.com will also receive Sid Caesar: Extra Portion, a single disc that includes two hours of additional sketches. Also included is the first time DVD release of the 1973 feature Ten From Your Show of Shows and the Emmy winning 1967 CBS Reunion Special.
