      This was a different type of outing for the celebrity roast. This issue of The Dean Martin Show roasted Dean Martin himself. Taped in Las Vegas, it had a tremendous dais, one of the biggest and best of the entire roast history. Everyone had to love this show. With Martin as the roasted celebrity, the roastmaster was Don Rickles, a logical choice. Rickles had the humor and the jokes to be the

      host. He was great.

      Martin sat in his normal spot, though, choosing not to move over to the honoree’s normal seat on the dais.

      One of the things I didn’t like was Orson Welles’ bit. The reason I didn’t like it is that it was largely a repeat of zingers he’s tossed Martin’s way before. Either that, or this is the original and what I saw in other roasts was the repeat. Either way, it’s ...


      • a downer to reuse material like that.

        Paul Lynde was one of the roasters. Gee, I really miss him. He had a zestful humor that could be spot on. He did some off color things from time to time that I didn’t like, but on shows like this, he seldom missed.

        Another favorite moment was Joe Namath saying he and Dean Martin were both “broad” minded.

        Boxing great Muhammad Ali was terrific. Howard Cosell was on

        and they got into it, after which Ali and Rickles went a round. This is my kind of funny.

        I loved John Wayne’s remarks. I was a big Wayne fan and he was just bigger than life. He got a few good punches at Martin.

        This was definitely one of the best roasts in all the years of celebrity roasts. It was funny and had a super dais. This is for sure one to watch.
