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

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 »

Dean Martin Celebrity Roast: Dean Martin
13 February 2018 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Dean Martin Celebrity Roast: Dean Martin (1976)

The host himself, Dean Martin, gets to be roasted as Don Rickles hosts this episode and there's no question that it was one of the strongest episodes of the series. With Rickles being the host you get his non-stop attacks throughout the show and we also get the likes of Orson Welles, James Stewart, John Wayne, Bob Hope, Gene Kelly, Muhammad Ali, Gabe Kaplan, Tony Orlando, Dan Rowan, Dick Martin, Howard Cosell, Joe Namath, Rich Little, Angie Dickinson, Joey Bishop, Foster Brooks, Paul Lynde and Nispey Russell.

As you can tell, everyone came out for this epiosde, which shows how beloved Martin was but it also means they were all bringing their "A" game as there's really not a weak act among them. Even a non-comedian like Namath gets a couple great jokes off and even John Wayne is rather funny in his bit. The highlight of the show actually turns out to be Joey Bishop who does a terrific and hilarious segment. The big guns like Welles, Stewart and Hope all live up to their big names and deliver some very funny moments as well.

Episode: A+
