The "Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts" were taped in the Celebrity Room of Las Vegas' MGM Grand Hotel. The hotel (no longer in existence) was also seen in "Lucy Gets Lucky" which co-starred Dean Martin and was filmed in and around the newly opened casino hotel.

The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast: Lucille Ball (1975)
The legendary Lucille Ball is the guest for this episode of the Dean Martin Celebrity Roast series. Jack Benny, Henry Fonda, Dick Martin and Dan Rowan, Don Rickles, Bob Hope, Ginger Rogers, Totie Fields, Milton Berle, Rich Little, Foster Brooks, Vivian Vance and Nipsey Russell are the people who showed up to throw jokes and insults. Overall this is certainly a high point for the series as all of the speakers are rather funny and deliver some hilarious jokes. The highlight is obviously Don Rickles who always steals these shows. He has some hilarious moments with his jokes but has something pulled on him that I won't ruin for you first time viewers. If you're a fan of the series then you know what you're getting into and I'm sure this one will be loved.
