The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast is a NBC television special show hosted by entertainer Dean Martin from 1974 to 1984. For a series of 54 specials and shows, Martin would periodically “roast” a celebrity. These roasts were patterned after the roasts held at the New York Friars' Club in New York City. The format would have the celebrity guest seated at a banquet table, and one by one the guest of honor was affectionately chided or insulted about his career by his fellow celebrity friends.

Jimmy Stewart captured the hearts of Americans with his kind, warm, boy-next-door appeal. Of his 79 films, he is probably most remembered for the perennial Christmas classic, ITS A WONDERFUL LIFE, for which he received an Oscar nomination in 1946. If that movie's theme holds true, "No Man Is Poor Who Has Friends", then Jimmy Stewart was one of the richest men in Hollywood. Some of Jimmy's friends joining Dean Martin in this rare and hilarious 1978 roast include Henry Fonda, Lucille Ball, Milton Berle and George Burns.
