“The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts” were before my time. That being said, I still love to watch aging comedians and celebs talk trash. I didn’t realize the show was on the air so long, but there was a gap between 1979 and 1984. I can’t imagine a time where a cleaned-up version of this show works, but Don Rickles makes it pick up. Blue humor cleaned up for network television doesn’t work anymore. I don’t want to be the one to throw out pale imitation of the real Roasts, but I don’t know how we can’t get to that point.
The DVD comes with bonus sketches, featurettes and interviews as the special features. The A/V Quality is pretty sharp, but it shows its age. The transfer is what it is for the source material available. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to fans.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Release Date: 04/14/15[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
