After having started off with humble beginnings, the ace comedian, actor and Roman General, Julius Caesar, went on to reach dizzying heights when suddently attacked by several close friends.
His friends lead by Caesar's confidant, Brutus, accused him of sleeping with their sheep as well as stealing sausage, cheese and wine from their pantries.
With a Comedy Nights Show to attend, he was deterred and had to make a mad dash to visit the local physician, Suetonius, for injuries from the skirmish, which was soon followed by the looting of his property and the sale of his horse.
Just as one thought that Julius Caesar was on his way to reclaim his lost glory and credibility, there came another shocker in the form of the stand-up comedian Octavius, who wrote a detailed post about how Caesar would return to his old ways if allowed to join their orgies and festivities.
After being expelled, one of Caesar's jokes was used against him by the savvy Octavius: "There are two ways to eat a sheep, yet only one offers the best reward."
A box full of noisy crickets was placed in Caesar's empty seat at the festival to remind people of his previous nuisance.
