It's incredible in these roasts to see the greats lined up on the dais. To listen to the humour akin to thinking out loud with no regard for what's correct to joke about. It's old era ... See full summary »

Red Buttons: "He wants to be cremated and to have the ashes thrown into Tony Randall's face!"
13 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Jack Klugman and Tony Randall were roasted together back in 1973, at the height of their success on THE ODD COUPLE, while this 1978 broadcast has Klugman alone the subject, during the second season of his new hit QUINCY (which lasted 7 years). The usual cast of suspects include Milton Berle, Dick Martin, Red Buttons, Joey Bishop, La Wanda Page, Ruth Buzzi, Don Rickles, and Foster Brooks. Perennial Jewish mother Kay Medford comes on as Jack's neighbor from Philadelphia, who talks about how he would have been expelled from school as a 'rotten kid': "but if you're never in school, how can you get expelled?" Connie Stevens joins in the chorus when referring to Klugman's Oscar Madison character: "Jack could clean up a room just be leaving it!" From the popular SOAP come Katherine Helmond ('Jessica Tate'), who explains how Tom Jones wound up in Dean's room at 3AM, and Robert Guillaume ('Benson'), who talks about his futile days as Klugman's houseboy: "it could have been worse, at least I never had to do the windows. I looked for 'em!" Leave it to Tony Randall to stick up for his old co-star, proclaiming him "a whale of an actor."
