      And away we go! It was Jackie Gleason’s turn to be honored as the Man of the Hour on the The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast which took place in one of the showrooms in Las Vegas. The dais did include some Honeymooner alumni, and I was happy to see that since that added a great deal

      to the humor of the show.

      As always, entertainer Dean Martin began things off by doling out his own list of zingers against Jackie and the dais. His stuff is usually pretty good, and Martin’s natural ‘I’m drunk’ delivery works well for him during these programs.

      It was Phyllis Diller who started it off and was followed by Milton ...


      • Berle and Danny Thomas, who was a hoot. The real fun started with Audrey Meadows, who interestingly was on the right side of the podium while Sheila MacRae was on the left. Both played Alice, Ralph’s wife on The Honeymooners. Both women were funny in their bits.

        Gleason’s Honeymooners guy pal Art Carney was on the

        dais, too, but for his bit he changed into his Ed Norton getup, which was fun to see.

        I enjoyed this hour tribute to the great one quite a bit. Many more members of the dais had good jokes to tell and tie ins with Gleason. Then Gleason wrapped it up with his comic routine. He was terrific.
