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 »

Trivia

Foster Brooks does his drunk act, naturally. His jokes are based on the (made up) premise that he and Lucy were high school sweethearts in Jamestown. He playfully calls her 'Big Red,' 'Lucille Bald,' and 'Cherry Head.' See more »

The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast: Lucille Ball

The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast: Lucille Ball (1975)

The legendary Lucille Ball is the guest for this episode of the Dean Martin Celebrity Roast series. Jack Benny, Henry Fonda, Dick Martin and Dan Rowan, Don Rickles, Bob Hope, Ginger Rogers, Totie Fields, Milton Berle, Rich Little, Foster Brooks, Vivian Vance and Nipsey Russell are the people who showed up to throw jokes and insults. Overall this is certainly a high point for the series as all of the speakers are rather funny and deliver some hilarious jokes. The highlight is obviously Don Rickles who always steals these shows. He has some hilarious moments with his jokes but has something pulled on him that I won't ruin for you first time viewers. If you're a fan of the series then you know what you're getting into and I'm sure this one will be loved.
