Dean Martin Celebrity Roast-Collectors Edition DVD Review

Synopsis: THE DEAN MARTIN CELEBRITY ROASTS were a fixture on NBC s Thursday night lineup from 1973 to 1984. In those 11 years, Dean and his panel of pals successfully ridiculed, embarrassed and made fun of legendary stars like Johnny Carson, Bob Hope, Lucille Ball, Jackie Gleason, Don Rickles and Dean Martin himself, to name a few, and America loved it!
ALSO FEATURED ARE THESE GUEST "ROASTERS" THROWING NON-STOP ZINGERS: Flip Wilson, Ronald Reagan, John Wayne, Ginger Rogers, Foster Brooks, Jimmy Stewart, Milton Berle, Billy Graham, Rich Little, Howard Cosell, Jack Benny, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Nipsey Russell, Omar Bradley, Phyllis Diller, Neil Armstrong, Ginger Rogers, Redd Foxx, Henry Kissinger, Don Rickles, Jonathan Winters, Sugar Ray Robinson, Mark Spitz, Dolores Hope, Lucille Ball, June Allyson, Greer Garson, Red Buttons, Barry Goldwater, Henry Fonda, Eddie Albert, Foster Brooks, George Burns, Tony Randall, Janet Leigh, Jesse White, Orson Welles, Mickey Rooney, LaWanda Page, Ruth Buzzi... just dozens and dozens of stars! It s a fun walk down memory lane.

Review: The Comedy Central roasts are so highly anticipated that millions tune in to view celebrities ripping on each other...but the roasts were first made famous back in the day with Dean Martin helming the show and tons of the famous people of the day taking cracks at each other.  Famous names like Jack Benny, Milton Berle and Jimmy Stewart!  These are such a joy to watch.  This is when comedians were comedians!  This fantastic DVD set includes 12 complete roasts and tons of interesting bonus features!  This one is a must have for anyone that enjoys classic actors and good old-fashioned comedy! 

12 Complete ROASTS on 6 DVDs, a special booklet, plus over 3 hours of Bonus Features including:
*Rare Dean Martin TV specials
