Wonderful funny contribution from Red Buttons. Kinda leaves you feeling two things. Almost all of these acting/comedic legends have passed and this sort of unbridled humour is no more

More Laughs in an Infomercial than in an episode of Friends!
17 July 2002 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

It's hard not to laugh at the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts even the infomercial has more laughs than any episode of the dreadful Friends or Will & Grace. Dean Martin and friends poke fun at each other and themselves. In these videos, you will see stars like Jackie Gleason, Johnny Carson, Dean Martin, Muhammad Ali, Lucille Ball, Bob Hope, and so many others who are no longer with us. It is hard to imagine the loss art of being a celebrity. Maybe they had problems with drinking, sex, drugs, but they still maintained a sense of dignity and apparent happiness to their fans. These celebrities like Bob Hope, Ali, and Carson are still with us but there are so many who are not with us anymore. Dean Martin deserved to be remembered as the father of the roasts. Rest in Peace, Dean, we still miss you!
