Mel Brooks remembers Sid Caesar on 'Conan'
Legendary comedian Sid Caesar died last week at the age of 91. Tuesday (Feb. 18), fellow legendary comic and friend Mel Brooks was on "Conan," where he spoke at length about his late colleague.
Above, Brooks and host Conan O'Brien talk about Caesar's well-known talent for being able to fake many languages while doing improv. They show a clip of the famous "German General" sketch from 1954, but Caesar still had it into his old age.
He appeared on a "Whose Line it it Anyway" episode in 2001 where he faked multiple languages, going toe-to-toe with the "Whose Line" improv-ers at nearly 80 years of age. Video of that is below.
The other clips from "Conan" also have some delightful videos of Caesar, plus a hilarious story about how he once bodily moved a VW Beetle that was in his parking space.
