THE PALEY CENTER FOR MEDIA PRESENTS
MEL BROOKS, CARL REINER, AND FRIENDS SALUTE SID CAESAR
ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 16 IN BEVERLY HILLS
Eddy Friedfeld to moderate the conversation
|WHAT:||The Paley Center for Media will host a special evening with Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner and more honoring iconic comedian, Sid Caesar, on Wednesday, July 16 at the Center’s Beverly Hills location. The evening will be moderated by Eddy Friedfeld, co-author (with Sid Caesar) of Caesar’s Hours: My Life in Comedy, With Love and Laughter.
When Sid Caesar passed away earlier this year, he left a creative legacy that both shaped and indelibly transformed television comedy. His admirers, whose ranks included Albert Einstein, compared his comic mastery to the genius of his idol Charlie Chaplin. In this special Paley Center evening–filled with clips of Sid’s work from the Paley Archive– industry guests salute the genius who gave them their start, and remember his extraordinary and enduring contributions to the entire comedy world.
The event is sold out, but the Paley Center will be live-tweeting from the event, so those unable to attend are invited to join the conversation in real-time as the evening unfolds via twitter: @PaleyCenter and #PaleyLiveLA.
The Paley Center for Media’s public programs connect the stars and creators with fans and are part of the Center’s ongoing commitment to increase the public’s understanding of media and its growing significance in our lives.
