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

It's incredible in these roasts to see the greats lined up on the dais. To listen to the humour akin to thinking out loud with no regard for what's correct to joke about. It's old era ... See full summary »

Dean Martin Roast: Muhammad Ali
22 December 2015 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast: Muhammad Ali (1976)

Muhammad Ali is the celebrity guest in this Dean Martin special. Of all the roasts that I've seen up to this point there's no doubt that this one here contains the last amount of laughs and I'm going to guess it's because there wasn't much to say. I mean, the majority of the jokes are aimed at a few loses Ali suffered and that's it. Red Buttons, Wilt Chamberlain, Howard Cosell, Rocky Graziano, Gene Kelly, Tony Orlando, Nipsey Russell, Freddie Prinze, Floyd Patterson, Sherman Hemsley, Ruth Buzzi and Orson Welles are among those throwing the jokes. Overall there are a couple nice laughs but there's really nothing hilarious. Foster Brooks does the best job as a former boxer who Ali "refused to fight." Buttons does a nice job and Russell is also very good.
