I love seeing some of the old time roasts. It was a different time. There was no political correctness. People were loaded and nobody cared. People smoked and nobody cared. People were just having a good time. Having fun! That’s what roasts are all about: Fun.
This classic video is a roast of the late, great Jackie Gleason and features a hammered Dean Martin at the start and a perhaps pretend drunk in Foster Brooks. None of that matters. It’s hilarious.
You see? It’s funny. What’s sad is this couldn’t happen today! So many people would line up with their grievances.
Share if you are a FAN of Jackie Gleason and Foster Brooks!
