I Respect Rodney

"In 1980, Rodney Dangerfield was at the height of his popularity and at the top of his form. That year his landmark comedy album "No Respect" was released. It went on to win the Grammy Award for best comedy album of the year. It wasn't until 2000 that "No Respect" was finally released on CD, but it's well worth the wait. It is the definitive Rodney album, and contains many classic bits. The jokes come frequent, fast and furious. Here's one example. "Today's been a terrible day. I got up this morning, picked up my shirt and a button fell off. I picked up my briefcase and the handle fell off. I'm afraid to go to the bathroom!" I just hope that the album "Rappin' Rodney" follows suit and is released on CD."
...His "2nd" best LP...

"The LP/CD No Respect is the one for which we'll all remember Rodney, a comedy legend. It's a must-buy for all Rodney fans. But...for an even FUNNIER Rodney recording, try and check out Rappin' Rodney (1983) on rare, hard-to-find LPs, audio tapes or eight-track tapes. I don't know why it was never released on CD, but on that one, his rapid-fire delivery and one-liners top even No Respect. I always wondered if maybe Rodney was a little embarrassed by the rap song "Rappin' Rodney" that he sung on that album -- which to some could sound a little out of date these days -- and maybe that was why he never pushed for it to be released on CD, but that was just a guess on my part. Who knows what the real reason is/was. But aside from the song, which I happen to think is funny too, the jokes on Rappin' Rodney will have you absolutely ROLLING in the aisles, if you can get your hands on it anywhere. The jokes on both No Respect and Rappin' Rodney are classic Rodney Dangerfield at his best, so definitely purchase No Respect if you're any type of Rodney fan. If you've ever seen him on The Tonight Show, then you might've even heard him telling some of the same jokes heard on both recordings. Rodney was awesome at what he did...like I said...a comedy legend."
Is he a loser, a smartalec, or just a genius?

""I get no respect", has always been a Rodney Dangerfield trademark and if you have never heard Rodney's humor from his own mouth, then it is about time. This routine was recorded around 1979-80, and Rodney stayed in the limelight for about 10 years after this with various late night specials and even his own comedy show in 1988. In about 50 minutes of stand-up, Rodney goes from loveable loser, to a-hole, to sexual pervert, to jerk, to loser that is a jerk, to sarcastic twit, and finally to comic genius. Rodney was indeed the man, as his crazy jokes could indeed happen to anybody. I mean, who can't help but laugh at jokes about "Rodney's wife" being "easy", or even about Rodney seeing a naked guy jogging outside his house and when Rodney asks him why, the guy answers, "because you came home early". I don't know how to classify Rodney Dangerfield, but I do know that he is one of the greats."
