Johnny Carson featured Rodney Dangerfield more than 70 times on the dominant Tonight Show. Rodney always delivered his best for Johnny, who adroitly set up each topic for Rodney once he was on the couch. This brilliant combination of talent is showcased above in January 1971.
A year earlier, Rodney Dangerfield appeared on one of the final episodes of The Jackie Gleason Show where he was still fine tuning his bits.
Rodney appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1969 where he had to keep his jokes a little more sanitized for a more modest audience.
Rodney always saved his best for The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson. Legend!
