Dean Martin showcases Don Rickles and Roy Rogers

Dean Martin showcases Don Rickles and Roy Rogers –

Donald Jay “Don” Rickles (born May 8, 1926) is an American stand-up comedian and actor. A frequent guest on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, he has acted in comedic and dramatic roles, but is widely known as an insult comic.

While working in a Miami Beach nightclub known as “Murray Franklin’s” early in his career, he spotted Frank Sinatra and remarked to him, “I just saw your movie, The Pride and the Passion and I want to tell you, the cannon’s acting was great.” He added, “Make yourself at home, Frank. Hit somebody!” Sinatra, whose pet name for Rickles was “bullet-head,” enjoyed Rickles so much that he encouraged other celebrities to see Rickles’ act and be insulted by him. Sinatra’s support helped Rickles become a popular headline performer in Las Vegas. Rickles earned the nicknames “The Merchant of Venom” and “Mr. Warmth” for his insult comedy in which he pokes fun at people of all ethnicities and walks of life.

Roy Rogers (born Leonard Franklin Slye November 5, 1911 – July 6, 1998) was an American singer and cowboy actor who was one of the most popular Western stars of his era. Known as the “King of the Cowboys”, he appeared in over 100 films and numerous radio and television episodes of The Roy Rogers Show. In many of his films and television episodes, he appeared with his wife Dale Evans, his golden palomino Trigger, and his German Shepherd dog Bullet. His show ran on radio for nine years before moving to television from 1951 through 1957. His productions usually featured a sidekick, often Pat Brady, Andy Devine, or George “Gabby” Hayes. In his later years, Rogers lent his name to the Roy Rogers Restaurants franchised chain.
