Ted Trevorrow - A Tribute to Rodney Dangerfield
Rodney Dangerfield was born Jacob Rodney Cohen in 1921 on Long Island, NY. He started performing in his teens and worked at the fringes of show business (He said he worked one club. It was so far out that his act was reviewed by Field and Stream.) He changed his legal name to Jack Roy.

In the early 1960's he got the idea for a stage persona for whom nothing went right. He took the name Rodney Dangerfield, which had been used comically as the name of a cowboy character by Jack Benny on his radio program. Dangerfield's big break came on Sunday, March 5, 1967. The Ed Sullivan Show needed a last-minute replacement and he became the surprise hit of the show. Rodney used to joke that people could buy aluminum siding from him during the week and watch him on the Ed Sullivan show on Sunday.

He told a joke about a bartender who wouldn't serve him because he was too ugly. Rodney lamented that "He gets no respect around here". Jack Benny told Dangerfield that his line-"I don't get no respect"-cuts right to everyone's soul. The line made him famous and wealthy (net worth about $10 million), although he remained depressed throughout his life. He used marijuana almost every day from the age of 21 to get relief from his anxiety.

Rodney's genius was his ability to tell an entire story about the human condition in one or two lines. Join us in celebrating the life and humor of Rodney Dangerfield as we resurrect some of his best material through the comic stylings of Ted Trevorrow in a Tribute to Rodney Dangerfield.
