Conan O'Brien & Mel Brooks Remember The Brilliance Of Sid Caesar

Posted: Updated:

Conan O'Brien spent most of his Tuesday show reminiscing with Mel Brooks about the legend that was Sid Caesar.

When Caesar's death was announced last Wednesday, O'Brien offered a brief, moving tribute during that night's episode, but clearly, a more thorough remembrance was in order. So he brought in one of Caesar's "Your Show Of Shows" writers, Brooks, to talk about his old friend and help introduce some of his most loved clips.

Our favorite was this section about Caesar's gift for mimicking languages he didn't actually speak, including German. Brooks penned this particular sketch and the ending is nothing short of sublime. Watch above, then do yourself a favor and click over to Team Coco to see the entire episode.
