The most amazing thing thing about this man is that he almost never repeats the same joke twice

Imagine Jimmy Fallon being the host here. He would ruin all of this.

Oh my wife! I always knew she cheated. I got in a cab, I asked the driver where I could find some action, he took me to MY house!

“Yesterday was a beauty. I put on my shirt and a button fell off... I picked up my briefcase, the handle fell off... I'm afraid to go to the bathroom.”

Actually, the title states "Carson can't keep but in REALITY, Carson was the best "set-up" man or straight man for any comedian. Ask Don Rickles on interviews after Johnny had passed. Ask most any comedian of that era if Johnny set up the table, and let the artistry of the guest flow. Johnny was setting up Rodney. Both knew their roles, and I liked both of them very much, but believe me on this: Johnny was two steps ahead of most everyone in the entertainment business. He could be funny, or he could be the straight man. That's the sign of a great entertainer.

The guy was nearly 50 when he finally made it. Never lose hope. You never know where life will bring you.

Carson is fighting back his laughter so he doesn’t interrupt Dangerfield... that’s class.

"What a son I've got. I told him about the birds and the bees and then he told me about the butcher and my wife." Rodney Dangerfield

Imagine saying that first joke in 2019 "I'm not his father I'm his mother"

"Rodney, you're going in for heart surgery, when will you be out"

"If things go well, I'll be out in two weeks, if not I'll be out in 15 min"

(his last one liner)

My Favorite:
"My kids come running into the kitchen screaming 'Mommy Mommy! The house is on fire!'.... My wife says 'Quiet, youll wake your father.."

Author — James Conkey


The thing about Rodney was that he was always "in character." He rarely ever actually talked about himself in a real way.

"I told my psychiatrist I had suicidal tendencies, he said from now on you have to pay in advance" Boom, pow, zing. Dangerfield lit it up.
