RODNEY DANGERFIELD / Las Vegas Headliner

"I haven't spoken to my wife in years.
I didn't want to interrupt her."

- Rodney Dangerfield

Rodney Dangerfield on the Tonight Show in the 1970s & 1980sRodney Dangerfield knocked them dead in Las Vegas with his rapid fire delivery and drop dead funny jokes. He might just be the most hilarious entertainer of all time in the eyes of many who saw him live.

He broke out on The Ed Sullivan Show in the 1960s and soon became known for his "I Don't Get No Respect" routine, a genius hook for a comedy bit.

Dangerfield appeared on the Tonight show 35 times, he was one of Johnny's favorite guests and no wonder, he killed every time and was right in line with Johnny's sense of humor.

Here's Rodney in 1978, it will give you an idea of what his stand up routine was all about:
