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 »

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

Did You Know?

Goofs

Take note of the gold-colored trim around the perimeter of the Man of the Hour portrait which appears and disappears throughout this episode. By inference these different appearances seem to indicate two separate taping times. Possibly two different background props (portrait mounts) were used and care was not taken to ensure the same one was always used from start to finish of this episode which may explain the difference in the way they look.

The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast: Bob Hope
13 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast: Bob Hope (1974)

This episode of the now classic series has Bob Hope being roasted by friends and colleges including Flip Wilson, James Stewart, Ronald Reagan, Howard Cosell, Jack Benny, Phyllis Diller, Gen. Omar Bradley, Rich Little, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Billy Graham, Milton Berle, Foster Brooks and Don Rickles. Johnny Bench, Ginger Rogers, Neil Armstrong, Sugar Ray Rabinson and Mark Spitz are also there but their comedy bits must have been cut out of the show. For the most part this here is one of the better episodes as there are plenty of great laughs throughout the running time. Stewart, never really a full blown comedian, delivers some nice laughs as he slowly builds into his jokes. There are also some good jokes from John Wayne who appears via a recorded image. Of course, the highlight to any of these shows are Rickles doing his thing and that includes some great jokes at Dean as well as getting one thrown back at him. All in all this is certainly an emtertaining episode and one that is worth watching.
