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: Sammy Davis Jr. (1975)
Freddie Prinze, Don Rickles, Danny Thomas, Phyllis Diller, Milton Berle, Wilt Chamberland, Nipsey Russell, Foster Brooks, Dionne Warwick, Joey Bishop and Norm Crosby are among the guests lined up for this episode of the Dean Martin Celebrity Roast tribute to the one and only Sammy Davis, Jr.. As you'd expect, the majority of the jokes are aimed at his race, him calling himself Jewish and of course his small frame.
Fans of the series will find this one to be another very good one with the majority of the jokes hitting the right spot and being quite funny. There are many highlights but the funniest moment of the night is probably the drunken act of Foster Brooks. He keeps messing up Sammy's name and it's certainly a hilarious sketch. Also quite good is Prinze who apparently lived with Sammy for a while. Rickles brings the same madness that you'd expect and I also thought Warwick was quite good considering she's not a comedian.
