Pioneer of Television Comedy

Sid Caesar: Pioneer of Television Comedy

Sid Caesar was a master of comedic performance and developing characters that the audience could relate to. His style of comedy is still fresh, funny
and family friendly today. This lecture will highlight some of his show’s most memorable skits and examine the creative process that brought them to
light.
Dr. Ira Epstein is Professor Emeritus at LaGuardia Community College, CUNY and has worked as a musician, taught music and toured with Theodore
Bikel and Herschel Bernardi in the 70s. Currently, he lectures to adults on comedy and music.
