Back when I used to live in Los Angeles and collected celebrity autographs on a much grander scale than I do these days, I used to see today’s birthday boy, comedian Rodney Dangerfield a lot! I loved his stand up routines a lot as well as his movies such as “Easy Money,” “Caddyshack” and “Back to School.” I even enjoyed his foray into singing with “Rappin’ Rodney.” He used to live at one of the hotels where many of the celebrity events took place. Rodney lived quite a wild life and you’d often see him in the lobby of the hotel in his bathrobe looking totally out of it – but looking like a good time was being had by all in his room. Happy birthday Rodney! Who says you get no respect?
