It's incredible in these roasts to see the greats lined up on the dais. To listen to the humour akin to thinking out loud with no regard for what's correct to joke about. It's old era ... See full summary »
In October 2014, "Saturday Night Live" presented a sketch about a roast in heaven hosted by Joan Rivers (Sarah Silverman). Lucille Ball (played by Kate McKinnon) was on the dais of 'dead celebrities.' See more »
Lucy and I were drawn to each other physically. Like two moths to a sock. I was a lusty larva and she had a cute cocoon.

The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast: Lucille Ball (1975)
The legendary Lucille Ball is the guest for this episode of the Dean Martin Celebrity Roast series. Jack Benny, Henry Fonda, Dick Martin and Dan Rowan, Don Rickles, Bob Hope, Ginger Rogers, Totie Fields, Milton Berle, Rich Little, Foster Brooks, Vivian Vance and Nipsey Russell are the people who showed up to throw jokes and insults. Overall this is certainly a high point for the series as all of the speakers are rather funny and deliver some hilarious jokes. The highlight is obviously Don Rickles who always steals these shows. He has some hilarious moments with his jokes but has something pulled on him that I won't ruin for you first time viewers. If you're a fan of the series then you know what you're getting into and I'm sure this one will be loved.
