This was really funny, 13 June 2004
Author: William (wmattifo) from Lubbock, TX

This was one really funny special that aired at the time that Rodney Dangerfield was being accepted as America's top comedian. For years, Rodney had been a big hit in night clubs and in Las Vegas, but in the late 1970's he was able to finally start making movies and television specials. This special pretended to show Rodney "behind the scenes", and it was hilarious. I remember one really funny scene was with Rodney and Bill Murray. Murray was trying to give Rodney "career advice" (like a pushy Hollywood agent) and he advised Rodney to change his "look" and his name to "Chubby Wells." Really funny stuff. Hopefully someone somewhere will decide to put this on the air, again. It was great.
