2014: Comic legend and TV pioneer Sid Caesar dies at age 91 in Beverly Hills, California. He became known for a flair for verbal and physical comedy that he showcased on the live 1950s comedy-variety series "Your Show of Shows" and "Caesar's Hour," which both served as great influences on later generations of comedians. Caesar also acted in movies, including playing Coach Calhoun in "Grease" and its sequel, and appearing in films such as "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World," "Silent Movie," "History of the World, Part I" and "Cannonball Run II."
