Roasting a guy with no sense of humor
24 August 2013 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Ralph Nader might possibly rank as the least interesting personage ever roasted by the Dean Martin show. At the time, he was well known as a safety nut, before becoming a political joke at election time. Rich Little even shows up as President Nixon, wearing a sign on his back that says 'Impeach Nader.' Former child actress Jane Withers was then playing Josephine the Plumber in Comet commercials, while singer Donna Fargo had just enjoyed her only top ten hit, 1972's "Funny Face." Ruth Buzzi (as Gladys Oormphy), Jack Klugman, Mort Sahl, James Brolin, and retired baseball manager Leo Durocher do what they can, but the shining stars have to be Steve Landesberg, Jackie Gayle, and Foster Brooks. Jackie talks about Nader holding out for King, rather than run for the Democrat Nomination for President, while Foster, as usual bringing up the rear, plays Nader's chief test driver, who smashes up every car. Landesberg, future deadpan regular on BARNEY MILLER, is a study in contrast as Nader's houseboy, complete with phony accent, enjoying his first night off (!). One hand is completely bandaged (electric carving knife), one finger (electric pencil sharpener,) hoping to buy some false teeth before testing the electric toothbrush. Much of this is indeed funny, yet through it all, the unresponsive Nader wears the same bewildered expression on his face.
