Wonderful funny contribution from Red Buttons. Kinda leaves you feeling two things. Almost all of these acting/comedic legends have passed and this sort of unbridled humour is no more

Who's who of Hollywood in hilarious Roasts!
24 October 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A previous user complained on and on about these being scripted! SO WHAT! They are quite funny. Ruth Buzzi is a standout as her "Laugh In" character Gladys Ormfby who takes more insults than she doles out. Dean is his usual self playing tipsy to great effect. Sadly, there are not too many stars of this caliber anymore. It's a lot of fun to see them having fun with these Roasts taped in Las Vegas. I think some of the celebrities were having almost as much fun doing these as we are watching them. La Wanda Page is another standout, her insults are as funny as anything Don Rickles belts out. I have a couple of these DVD's and do not get tired watching them over and over.
