Sid Caesar’s Shape Up!

Sid Caesar

First a little background info on recently deceased comedy legend Isaac Sidney “Sid” Caesar:

Comedian, saxophonist, composer, actor and musician, he performed within the orchestras of Charlie Spivak, Shep Fields and Claude Thornhill as saxophonist. Later, as super-hip jazz musician “Cool Cees” in television skits, he played tenor saxophone, and sang with the satirical trio “The Hair Cuts” (with Carl Reiner and Howard Morris). He sang the lead role in “Little Me” on Broadway. Joining ASCAP in 1955, his popular song compositions include “I Wrote This Song for Your Birthday” and “Was That You?”. (Source)

Quite the storied career, huh? Sid was probably best known for playing Coach Calhoun in the GREASE movies.

Anyhoo, Sid got the fitness bug back in 1984 like pretty much everyone else did during the 1980s and decided to put out his very own exercise tape. Within this 8 minutes of video nirvana is just about some of the wackiest nonsense ever filmed by man. For some reason Sid feels the need to progressively strip during this vid until he is only in his itty bitty banana hammock (keeping in mind that Sid was well into his 60s when he made this) while performing a gaggle of exercises totally wrong. His form is terrible from start to finish and will more than likely result in a person injuring themselves if they were to follow this exercise regimen for any extended period of time. And he also included a bunch of call girls as eye candy and motivation. Believe me when I say that this video is absolute fuckery.
