From one of a series of specials Sid Caesar did in 1959:

You can see the beginnings of the effects of Sid's addictions. He's lost a fair amount of weight since "Your Show of Shows", & he covers himself wonderfully when he flubs a line. Sid barely has a line through most of the sketch. But, when you have a red-hot Charlton Heston (just over 2 weeks before the premiere of Ben-Hur) playing opposite you (along with Audrey Meadows & Howard Morris) there's only so much time. Heston is actually funny in the part, hamming a bit & playing the laughs well. I'm Impressed!
Love & Peace, Clarence
