Redd Foxx / Las Vegas Headliner

"My first wife, I'll never forget her — and I've tried."
- Redd Foxx

Redd Foxx was an extremely popular Vegas headliner who started on the Chitlin' Circuit and worked his way up to the big showrooms at the largest casinos on the Strip. Redd used to do a standup act at 2:30 in the morning in Las Vegas.

Watch Redd Foxx from the Merv Griffin Show in the mid-sixties. Redd had a very dirty act, this was his cleaned up material for TV.


Here's Redd's standup routine:


Redd Foxx was in the hot seat on an episode of the Dean Martin Roasts filmed at the MGM Casino and Showroom in the 1970s. He was also a popular guest on other Roasts like this one for Frank Sinatra.


Redd Foxx's funeral was held in the city he loved, Las Vegas and is buried at Palm Valley View Memorial Park. It is rumored that his ghost haunts his former home.


"We were poor. If I wasn't a boy, I wouldn't have had nothing to play with."
- Redd Foxx
