Wonderful. Many thanks for giving it to the world.
I remember seeing this many years ago. What an incredible constellation of writers!

karassThink of the small group of people you have ended up running into and spending time with over the course of your life. Some may be friends, others not. A big part of Vonnegut's Karass concept revolves around coincidence evolving beyond apophenia, into the realm of the mystical.
The author suggests a divine plan behind the interactions of those within a karass, but adds it is unlikely that it's purpose will ever be revealed. I suspect it is, like the universe itself, recursive in function.
In summary, to begin to understand one's karass and those who are entwined within it, simply look for a common denominator between all those you have spent substantial time with, by choice or otherwise. The collective experiences garnered through these contacts both become and determine one's karass.I have a friend who I went through 6 years of elementary school with and then Jr. High. We were friends, but from different neighborhoods so not especially close. I quit high school, and after we only maintained sporadic contact. Several years later we both ended up as belated Freshman at the same university in Florida.
Through mutual friends we kept in touch for 5 or so years after college, then were disconnected again when I moved to California. A few months ago we found each other once again in the metaverse, and I just sent him an email today explaining karass, and how I always saw us as part of one. Disappointed after looking into what was available via Google, I ended up here posting this definition. Karass?
I liked Sid when he played a jazz guy with inch thick glasses 🙂
you forgot Woody Allen
I guess everyone knows Alan Brady was based on Sid Caesar.
I ❤️ Sid Caesar!
I ❤️ Howie Morris!
thx for sharing.
I'v seen this video about 10 times through the years, and I still laugh like an idiot
Auschwitz could have had a field day with these guys.
At 51:44 Carl says, "this cumbersome diamond.." and describes the cleverness in putting it in a brown paper bag, I wonder if he got that the joke (at 51:30) is that the name of it was the Cumbersome Diamond – like the Hope Diamond. IOW, he should have said "the" instead of "this" at the quote noted first. The cleverness is the naming of it.
Maybe it’s not, but it sounds like canned laughter.
I think just Mel and Carl are the only 2 still alive in 2019. Mel's 93 and Carl's 97.
We need more comic writers and performers like these guys
What the fuck where is Adrian Dunbar and James Nesbit there supposed to be on this TV show
Thanks for posting this. Sid Caesar is one of my favorite comedians of all time of course Mel Brooks. What's funny was the ad libbed song about Brooks committing suicide I couldn't stop laughing as well as the Anti Semitic Polka Oh My God that was hilarious.
I have been back several times to watch this over again. I still laugh every time. These guys were genius.
