Dick the stooge
9 July 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Dick is forced to work as a sidekick in a new late night talk show hosted by Don Prince, an obnoxious former sitcom star.

Prince is played by legendary insult comic Don Rickles, who in reality was good friends with Bob Newhart. Your enjoyment of this episode will depend on how you feel about Rickles, I think he is hilarious so I loved this show. Don throws some insults at Dick which becomes popular with the audience. The funniest scene is when it becomes a regular skit on the show called "Pick On Dick" where audience members insult him and win T-shirts. Don also talks about Joanna, saying that he doesn't know what those Merchant Marines see in her! She later gets a heavy breathing Merchant Marine caller and she has a funny line when she tells him "Go lift weights!"
