Legendary performer Sid Caesar may be gone, but he leaves behind an extensive body of work from his illustrious career on screen and stage, much of which is available at our very fingertips (with a little bit of detective work). Case in point: this clip of Caesar on The Dean Martin Show from 1966, performing the Cy Coleman-Carolyn Leigh song "Real Live Girl" from the musical Little Me. With a book by Neil Simon, Little Me, which premiered on Broadway four years earlier, was built around Caesar's prodigious talents as a sketch comedian, requiring him to play seven roles of various ethnicities and specialties. Caesar earned a Tony nod for his work, and in the aforementioned clip (which you can watch below) of Caesar, Martin, and Abbe Lane, it's easy to see why.
