The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts were a fixture on NBC's Thursday night lineup from 1973 to 1984. In those 11 years, Dean and his panel of pals successfully ridiculed, embarrassed and made fun of legendary stars like Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin himself, to name a few, and America loved it!
Roastees include Bob Hope, Johnny Carson, Jimmy Stewart, Sammy Davis Jr., Jack Benny, Lucille Ball, Dean Martin, Jackie Gleason, Don Rickle, Michael Landon, Kirk Douglas and Joan Collins.
This 6-DVD collection includes 12 complete roasts, plus almost three hours of bonus features, including rare Dean Martin TV specials, bonus sketches, interviews with Betty White, Jackie Mason, Ruth Buzzi and Tim Conway, plus exclusive featurettes Legends of the Roasts and The Art of the Roast and more!
There were 54 installments of THE DEAN MARTIN CELEBRITY ROAST over the course of a decade, and this set compiles 12 of them featuring appearances by such famous faces as Bob Hope, Johnny Carson, Jimmy Stewart, Sammy Davis Jr., Don Rickles, Jackie Gleason, and Kirk Douglas.
