For those of you not old enough to remember the old Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts, they enjoyed unparalleled television popularity back in the 1970s and 80s. The show would “roast” a different celebrity each week, featuring a roster of well-known comedians. One of the staples of those shows was the former vaudevillian star Red Buttons, who would routinely question why a particular celeb was getting honored when some of the greatest members of his nationality (Jews, Irishmen, African-Americans and others) were never feted. It was a different time back then and the routine was a hilarious highlight of the celebrity roasts.
