Much Better than those awful Dean Martin Roasts
4 September 2017 | by foosie-2See all my reviews

After the recent passing of Jerry Lewis, WFUT dug out of the archive this old Kraft Music Hall roast of Jerry, chaired by the dry Johnny Carson. Charlie Callas stole the evening in a spot-on impersonation of Georgie Jessel, complete with a chestful of medals, with his whiny voice, NY accent and reputation for speaking at memorial services. Also speaking were Alan King, Jack Carter, Milton Berle, Don Rickles, and the utterly gorgeous film critic Rex Reed, infamous for appearing in MYRA BRECKINRIDGE. By the time this aired September 3, 2017, everyone was in comedy heaven, except the 78 year old Reed.
