it ain't easy being me

i could have titled this entry, "i don't get no respect," but either way, it's the same thing, eh?

sunday night we watched a rodney dangerfield special called rodney dangerfield: it ain't easy being me.

the show featured dangerfield doing some standup and some vignettes concerning his love life, marriage, children. most of the show, though, dealt with comedians coming up on stage and doing their thing.

as the progressed i commented to dawn about how old the show might be. i didn't recognize the first few acts. then jerry seinfeld came on, looking young and daper. he was introduced as an up and coming comedian. we knew then that the show was pre- "seinfeld." sam kinison was on, too. so was robert townsend who was extremely funny.

near the end of the show, something clicked in my head. roseanne was playing dangerfield's wife in the vignettes. at the end of the show, dangerfield introduced each comedian then roseanne.

then it clicked. she asked to go up and do a little standup. when she did that i remembered i'd seen the show-- 20 years ago when i was in college. i watched it on hbo when i lived in the dorms. i remember laughing, though i'm sure the only comedian i knew was sam kinison. though, i don't find him amusing. but i knew roseanne from her show. and her standup cracked me up.

it's crazy how it's been that ong since i'd seen the show and only remembered it because of roseanne.

Ah, have no idea how I missed that about the version variety.
Though the amusing point is that the unsigned motorist on
the ML-1210 page is then model 3.01. Anyway, I will certainly update the
blog post to make this a bit more clear.
