Here’s a place worth visiting: Stranger in Town. Like for George Jones and Elvis Costello; Leonard Cohen and Pete Seeger; Lee J Cobb in Death of Salesman; Rodney on Johnny; Dick Gregory and even Mort Sahl.

Cool site. Dangerfield on Carson is required viewing for those who study or appreciate the funny. What a gift he had. Smart, simple jokes for everyone, and expertly crafted for the connoisseur.
Oh, and nothing ever sold a joke like his mug.
And he was around for years in the 40s, quit, was a salesman, did well and then came back as Rodney.
Yeah, the salesman skills are apparent in his second coming. He's never slacking and wisecracking. He's always working an angle, even if he's coming straight at you, and always closing the deal with those crazy eyes, and self-conscious gestures.
Not just a joke seller, but an entertainer, and a fuggin' funny one at that.
