Dean Martin Roast: Johnny Carson
30 January 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Celebrity Roast: Johnny Carson (1973)

Another highly entertaining episode in the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts series. This time it's Johnny Carson taking jokes from the likes of Jack Benny, George Burns, Ruth Buzzi, Bette Davis, Redd Foxx, Dom DeLuise, Bob Newhart, Jonathan Winters and Doc Severinsen among others.

There were some awkward moments scattered throughout this episode include the sequence with Buzzi, which appears to have been edited in. I'm not sure what was up but the editing of this sequence really made it seem like she wasn't at the actual event. Outside of this for the most part there were some very funny moments and especially when Carson gets to go back at his roasters. Burns delivered some very good jokes as did Foxx and even Davis was good with her delivery.
