Comedy TV legend Sid Caesar has passed away at the age of 91.
His friend Larry King revealed the news on Twitter Wednesday.
Caesar's 90-minute live variety program Your Show of Shows helped cement the comedian as one of the first real television stars. The sketch series, which co-stared Imogene Coca, featured an impressive roster of writers, including Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Neil Simon and Larry Gelbart.
Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones
In the spring of 2009, a new kind of romance was born on NBC when overeager bureaucrat Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) met sweet nurse Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) on the Parks and Recreation series premiere. Over the last six seasons, their journey has spawned catchphrases, beautiful compliments and a new faith in female friendships on television. However, that will all soon come to an end when Jones and co-star Rob Lowe leave the comedy early next year.
"Amy and Rashida, like Leslie and Ann, are dealing with it in real time," Jones tells TVGuide.com. "Amy has been saying to people, 'She thinks she's leaving, but I'm going to lock her in my trailer.' I'm a little bit in denial about it, too."
