Rodney Dangerfield Gets My Respect And Then Some

May 15, 2016

Last night Antenna T.V. aired a phenomenal Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson, who was back from a vacation that took him to among other events, the great Bjorn Borg 5 set victory vs John McEnroe in the 1980 Wimbledon Men’s (Tennis) Final.

Rodney Dangerfield was one of the guests and using his famed gyrations and incredible non stop, “bang bang” arsenal of jokes, often regarding his “getting no respect,” showed why all these years later, he is more than “respected,” as he ranks in the pantheon of great comedians.

After his stand up routine, Mr. Dangerfield sat with Johnny and Ed McMahon (watching again I have gained great respect, there is that word again, for Mr. McMahon’s contribution to the great show) and with Johnny setting him up, barely took a breath, with more non stop comedy.

I believe Rodney finally went down a notch in tone from his frenetic pace, saying “Caddyshack” as a clip from the 1980 movie was shown. It is great seeing the Carson Tonight Shows particularly so with Rodney Dangerfield, in one that aired last night.



On the 1980 Carson Tonight Show, that aired last night on Antenna T.V, Mr. Dangerfield pictured above, talked about his then new comedy album, “No Respect.”
