      As surprising as it may seem, Republican Senator Barry Goldwater appeared multiple times on roasting editions of The Dean Martin Comedy Hour , socking it to different entertainers. On this particular evening, the Arizona senator was on the receiving end of the barbs. Naturally, the political jokes went on throughout

      the night.

      William Conrad, Norm Crosby, Steve Landesberg, and Carroll O’Connor were some of the early speechmakers. O’Connor was the best of this group. His jokes were all slanted on liberal politics, and they all hit the mark.

      I was very surprised to see actor William Holden on the dais. He ...


      • must have been good friends with the man. I don’t recall him doing any other of the celebrity roasts, so that made his appearance a bit special for his fans.

        Goldwater himself did a respectable job. I loved his line about inflation coming at the wrong time, right when prices are

        so high. He had some very good retorts.

        Overall, this was actually better than some of the other roasts that have been held. Maybe it was the wealth of political material that was available. So much of that is relevant throughout time. Just change the names and the humor is there.
