Dean Martin and that Drunk Foster Brooks. Born Today - May 11.

Foster Brooks was born today. Here's a really funny clip of him roasting Don Rickles at a Dean Martin celebrity roast.

His pretend drunkenness cracks me up but the reaction of the other people makes it even funnier.

But I still think Ed Norton and Ralph Kramden on The Honeymooners were funnier drunks when they drank grape juice and thought they were drunk. Does anyone remember that episode?

I'm pretty sure I was just insulted over at my corner, somehow...

yet still I come back for the abuse.

*Flips to Nick at Nite to try and find some Honeymooners, or at least some good old Newhart.*

Lilu - insulted? I'm jealous that you get 100 plus comments.

Hi Dr. Zibbs!
So sorry I haven't come by for cocktails lately. What are you serving for the Scandalous this week?

Michelle said...

He is funny.

And no!

Dr Zibbs said...

Scandalous - you name it I got it.

Apparently.

I had to wait till I was home to truly appreciate that. It was awesome, thanks for that! What I really like about the old roasts is that it is funny as hell without being so personal and insulting. The newer roasts are just so far over the top!

Dr Zibbs said...

Lilu - I think I understand.

Fancy - you've got a point but I still love the new ones too.

This is funny ~ I just watched a bit the other day where he was a drunk airplane pilot & of course Dean-o was chain smoking and laughing his ass off.
