Description & Features+

"The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts" were a fixture on NBC's Thursday night lineup from 1973 to 1984. In those 11 years, Dean and his panel of pals successfully ridiculed, embarrassed and made fun of legendary stars like Johnny Carson, Bob Hope, Lucille Ball, Jackie Gleason, Don Rickles and Dean Martin himself, to name a few, and America loved it! These roasts were patterned after the roasts held at the New York Friars Club in New York City. The format would have the celebrity guest seated at a banquet table, and one by one the guest of honor was affectionately chided or insulted about his career by his fellow celebrity friends. These days, the roast format is sort of American folklore. Where else would the guest of honor be showered with insults? "The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts" bring back all the fun from years gone by. These DVDs contains hours of hilarious camp and humor as stars like Jimmy Stewart, Sammy Davis Jr., Jack Benny, Michael Landon, Kirk Douglas, Joan Collins and more are roasted by a who's who of stage, screen, sports and political stars!.

DVD Special Features: Rare Dean Martin TV Specials, Bonus Sketches, Interviews with Betty White, Jackie Mason, Ruth Buzzi, Tim Conway, Rich Little and Don Rickles, Exclusive Featurettes: "Legends of the Roasts," "The Art of the Roast" and "The King of Cool: Always in Fashion!"
