I doubt way back then you would have seen Dean Martin make a quip about how one of the women roasters only had sex with black dudes.

I've recently taken up watching some of his roasts and let me tell you, there's a lot of heavy handed editing going on. I just wish they had as much off air material as they did on. THEN we would see a show. His variety show was a hoot as well.

And FYI. Dean wasn't a drinker. The majority of the time, he had apple juice in that glass that was always in his hand. Now, as for the rest of them....

I just wish I had the opportunity to see the Rat Pack live back in the day on the Vegas strip. I listen to some of their uncensored MP3's from back then, and they are hilarious. No *****-footing around back then.

Johnny Carson was the king of late night. A lot of that had to with his guests. It's amazing to see how people change over the years when you watch them on those talk shows.

But if you really watch em, they said some pretty out there things, but dressed up the jokes to slip past the censors. Alot like TOS used to do with alot of their stroylines.

If I recall correctly, Johnny Carson got fined one time for a segment on his show. He was interviewing some female celebrity (may have been Raquel Welch), and she had a pet cat on her lap.

Raquel: Would you like to pet my pussy?
Carson: Move the cat.

LMAO!!!!! This really happened.

That was Zsa Zsa. I saw the clip years ago.

Carson said he would but only if she got rid of that damn cat.
