The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast: Jack Klugman (1978)
Jack Klugman is a comic legend and he finally got in the hot seat to take the insults and jokes. When it comes to this series, more often than not the bigger the legend the bigger the laughs but that actually wasn't the case here. The roasters include Connie Stevens, Dick Martin, LaWanda Page, Joey Bishop, Milton Berle, Phyllis Diller, Red Buttons, Foster Brooks, Joyce Brothers, Ruth Buzzi and Don Rickles. I must admit that I was a little surprised to see how light this was on actual laughs. That's not to say this is a bad episode or that it isn't worth watching because it is. It's just that I expected it to be a lot funnier. It almost seems as if some of the guests were taking it easy on the jokes and this is especially true for Rickles. He certainly wasn't what you typical saw from him as he took it rather easy on everyone.
