LOS ANGELES — Sid Caesar, a television pioneer who reigned as the king of live TV sketch comedy in the 1950s with his inspired brand of mimicry, pantomime and satire on the classic comedy-variety series “Your Show of Shows” and “Caesar’s Hour,” has died. He was 91.

Caesar died Wednesday at his home in Beverly Hills after a brief illness, according to his biographer and friend Eddy Friedfeld.
