Dean Martin, Peter Sellers, Nipsey Russell, Dom DeLuise – 1973 – “The Barbershop Sketch”

 

 

 

” Dean Martin (born Dino Paul Crocetti; June 7, 1917 — December 25, 1995) was an American singer, actor, comedian, and film producer.

  One of the most popular and enduring American entertainers of the mid-20th century, Martin was nicknamed the “King of Cool” for his seemingly effortless charisma and self-assuredness. He was a member of the “Rat Pack” and a star in concert stage/nightclubs, recordings, motion pictures, and television. He was the host of the television variety program The Dean Martin Show (1965–1974) and The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast (1974–1985).

  Martin’s relaxed, warbling crooning voice earned him dozens of hit singles including his signature songs “Memories Are Made of This”, “That’s Amore”, “Everybody Loves Somebody”, “You’re Nobody till Somebody Loves You”, “Sway”, “Volare”, and “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head?”.

  Peter Sellers, CBE (born Richard Henry Sellers; 8 September 1925 — 24 July 1980), was a British film actor, comedian and singer. He performed in the BBC Radio comedy series The Goon Show, featured on a number of hit comic songs and became known to a world-wide audience through his many film characterisations, among them Chief Inspector Clouseau in The Pink Panther series of films.

  Julius “Nipsey” Russell (September 15, 1918 — October 2, 2005) was an American comedian, best known today for his appearances as a guest panelist on game shows from the 1960s through the 1990s, especially Match Game, Password, Hollywood Squares, To Tell the Truth and Pyramid.

  His appearances were distinguished in part by the short, humorous poems he would recite during the broadcast. These lyrics became so closely associated with Russell that Dick Clark, Bill Cullen, Betty White, and others regularly referred to him as “the poet laureate of television.” He also had a leading role in the film version of The Wiz as the Tin Man. He was also a frequent guest on the long-running “Dean Martin Celebrity Roast” series.

  Dominick “Dom” DeLuise (August 1, 1933 — May 4, 2009) was an American actor, comedian, film director, television producer, chef, and author.

  He starred in a number of movies directed by Mel Brooks, in a series of films with career-long best friend Burt Reynolds, and as a voice actor in various animated films by Don Bluth.”

George Carlin & Flip Wilson – 1973 – Wonderful Wino Radio

 

 

” George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 — June 22, 2008) was an American comedian, writer, social critic, and actor who won five Grammy Awards for his comedy albums.Carlin was noted for his black humor as well as his thoughts on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various taboo subjects. Carlin and his “Seven dirty words” comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which a 5–4 decision by the justices affirmed the government’s power to regulate indecent material on the public airwaves. One newspaper called Carlin “the dean of counterculture comedians.”

  The first of his 14 stand-up comedy specials for HBO was filmed in 1977. From the late 1980s, Carlin’s routines focused on sociocultural criticism of modern American society. He often commented on contemporary political issues in the United States and satirized the excesses of American culture. In 2004, Carlin was placed second on the Comedy Central list of the 100 greatest stand-up comedians, ahead of Lenny Bruce and behind Richard Pryor. 

  He was a frequent performer and guest host on The Tonight Show during the three-decade Johnny Carson era, and hosted the first episode of Saturday Night Live. His final HBO special, It’s Bad for Ya, was filmed less than four months before his death. In 2008, he was posthumously awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

  Flip Wilson (December 8, 1933 — November 25, 1998), born Clerow Wilson, Jr., was an American comedian and actor. In the early 1970s, Wilson hosted his own weekly variety series, The Flip Wilson Show. The series earned Wilson a Golden Globe and two Emmy Awards.

  In January 1972, Time magazine featured Wilson’s image on their cover and named him “TV’s first black superstar”. “
