Rodney Dangerfield was/is one of the most successful comics to ever hit the stage. Not only was he a brilliant stand up comedian that could fire off one-liners like a machine gun to your funny bone, but he was one of the few comedians who could insert their stage presence and personality flawlessly into movies (i.e. Easy Money and Caddy Shack).  Rodney may have not got much respect from his peers, girlfriends, or ex-wives in his lifetime but he most certainly deserves and has it now. Enjoy the magic man, Rodney Dangerfield.
