The Halves of the Staff had the pleasure of meeting Joan Dangerfield, widow of Rodney Dangerfield, when she was in town on the occasion of the dedication of The Rodney Booth at the Las Vegas Laugh Factory.
Factory proprietor Harry Basil was joined by Stephen Thomas and The Male Half on Friday November 22 on that club’s late show, which was also a tribute to the late comedian. At the conclusion of the show, Basil– who was for many years Dangerfield’s opening act and a collaborator in the capacity of director or screenwriter on many of the late comedian’s film projects– reminisced about Dangerfield, showed Dangerfield-related clips and thanked those in attendance (including Leslie Greif, who produced Dangerfield’s “Meet Wally Sparks”). He also unveiled two new items which were added to The Rodney Booth– a dedication plaque and the jacket that Dangerfield wore in “Sparks.”
Also announced was the launch of Dangerfield’s new website, www.rodney.com (two years in the making), which contains mountains of information and fascinating items like a typewritten page of the first attempt at standup by “Jack Roy” (Dangerfield’s first stage name).
