The Hilarious “Rappin’ Rodney”! Comedian Rodney Dangerfield’s Rap Hit! His Funniest Movies Too!

Rodney Dangerfield


“I Don’t Get No Respect!”

It was his signature catchphrase, but legendary Comedian Rodney Dangerfield got respect for being one of the greatest standup Comics of all time!

“That’s The Story Of My Life…”

Dangerfield perfected a deadpan delivery of jokes that always put himself down – always along the lines of:

“I don’t get no respect, no respect, no respect at all…that’s the story of my life”…no respect…you now my wife, she cut our lovemaking down to once a week…that’s nothing, two guys I know she cut out altogether!”

Rodney Rocks The Tonight Show!

Rodney Dangerfield was a salesman in the 60’s, who took his stage name in order to do standup comedy at night. After years of struggle, he got a chance to perform on The Ed Sullivan Show, and a star was born. His non-stop string of self-deprecating one-liners were hilarious. He ended up appearing on The Tonight Show 35 times, and Johnny Carson loved him…

Here is a six minute bit with Rodney on The Tonight Show – siting on the couch with Johnny Carson the entire time – tossing out non-stop one-liners and cracking Johnny up!

Dangerfield then made a string of hit comedies – beginning with the comedy, “Easy Money”- check out the trailer:

One of Dangerfield’s biggest hits was the comedy “Back To School”, when he enrolls in college to try and become closer with his estranged son.

Here is the classic scene where he angers his history teacher, the brilliant Sam Kineson…

“Oh…Somebody Step On A Duck?”

Finally, Dangerfield will always be loved for his role in “Caddyshack”…what was originally a cameo role grew and grew based on the comic’s hilarious ad libs during filming…

The film is legendary for all of Bill Murray’s ad libs on set, but here’s Rodney turning a clubhouse meal into hilarious chaos…

Recently, my wife bought me a turntable – I collected albums growing up, and managed to save 100+ over the years…as a friend said:

“You dragged those around for twenty years!?!?!?”

Well, I’m glad I did!

Yes, I have two classic Rodney Dangerfield albums!

Of course, his classic “No Respect” album – but did you know he released a rap song?

Rappin’ Rodney!

That’s right, Rodney Dangerfield had one of the first rap hits with his 1983 single “Rappin’ Rodney.” Here is the hilarious music video – the quality isn’t great, but enjoy the song:

Performing on The Tonight Show was a launchpad for many comics, and here a book that takes you inside Johnny Carson’s world…

Read some incredible stories about Johnny Carson, as told by his Attorney, described on the show as “Bombastic Bushkin!” Read more here:

Another comic who became famous thanks to incredible appearances on The Tonight Show was the late Garry Shandling:

Sadly, Shandling passed away – I took a look at his career and you can see his best moments here:

Of course, one of the greatest and most iconic standup Comedians ever was Richard Pryor:

His greatest work is still widely available, and here is a look at some of his greatest work:

  2. Rodney was the master of the punchy, quick joke. I used to love him on Carson. When he got on a roll, there was nothing better.

  3. He was one of the greatest comedians. Thank you for that Johnny Carson video. Great memories. I think Caddyshack was one of the best comedy films, and Rodney Dangerfield starred!

  7. Hi John, I know Rodney Dangerfield from CaddyShack. I have seen pictures of your record player on Instagram. I also have one with about 40 old records that were my mom’s.

  8. I used to like Rodney, but he didn’t appear much over here. The Carson Show clip really made me laugh this afternoon, and I was amazed to see a lot of the ‘Goodfellas’ cast in ‘Easy Money’. I will have to search out that film. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
