This roast is notable for three reasons. The first is the incredible number of drug references. Tommy Chong actually pretends to snort coke on the table while someone is speaking. At least I hope that he is pretending. Totally tasteless.
Second is a very early appearance by Jerry Seinfield. He's not that good and out of his element, but it's nice to see him trying, anyway.
Last, and most important, is a typically insane appearance by Dick Shawn, one of his last. It is the greatest non-stand up stand up I have ever seen. He doesn't tell a single joke and yet he wipes everyone else out. The man was pure genius and his part makes searching this out worth it.
