by EDITOR'S NOTE: Nobody had ever heard of Rodney Dangerfield unf/7 he went on the "Ed Sullivan Show" and became an overnight success. But he'd spent years paying his dues, working as a businessman during the week and a comic in tiny clubs on weekends. "I played one club, it was so far out, my act was reviewed in 'Field and Stream,'" Rodney sighs. Sighing is one of his comic mainstays; itfs a tough, monotone sigh, and it propels him from joke to joke. "I get no respect," he laments. "I never get a break. To me, life is just a bowl of pits." Aside from performing steadily at his New York club, Dangerfield's, Rodney has made two IP's, "I Don't Get No Respect" (Bell) and "Rodney Dangerfield--The loser" (Decca), and written two boofo, "I Don't Get No Respect' and "I Couldn't Stand My Wife's Cooking So I Opened a Restaurant." This summer he'll be performing at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas from July 2 through Sept. 5. So here's Rodney, getting no respect: I get no respect from .my dog. The other day, the dog went to the door and started to bark. I went over and opened it. The dog didn't want to go out; he wanted me to leave." · . * I remember the day I got married. The judge said, "If anyone is against this marriage, speak now." I looked up. Her family was forming a double line. I get no respect from my kids. Every time I leave the house, they wish me heavy traffic. · Nothing goes right for me. I went into a store and bought something. I paid in cash and it bounced. · I got no respect again last week. I went to buy a new suit and told the salesman I'd like to see something cheap. He told me to look in the mirror. · The other night I took my wife out. I felt romantic but it didn't work out. I took her for a lobster dinner and sat there very manly. Then the waiter put a bib on me. ·· I have a weird neighbor. He told me he broke out from chocolate and San Quentin. Mm£^^^!^'^ · The other night in my neighborhood, a guy pulled a knife on me. I could see it wasn't a real professional job. It had butter on it. With me, nothing works out. Every time I leave my house, my wife tells me to call her in case something goes right. I went to a really high-class zoo. The kids were throwing almonds and pecans to the elephants. My old man was a gambler. Everything was the horses. In my family album every picture is a photo finish. I get no respect from my kid. The other day I was outside his room. I heard my wife say, "Now you'll kiss Daddy good night." The kid started to cry. He said, "Why? I wasn't bad to^ day." I never got any respect, even when I was a kid. Whenever I got hurt, they ! gave me second aid. I never got any respect from my old man. I said, "Nobody likes me." He said, "Don't feel that way. Everybody hasn't met you yet." The way my wife irons a shirt is very discouraging. I mean, when you bum a shirt, who puts on butter? I GET NO RESPECT AT ALL Whenever I get in an elevator, the operator says the same thing: "Basement?"
