Los Angeles – (May 29, 2019) – Entertainment icons share their thoughts on the pop culture figures, films, series, and more that defined a decade in AXS TV’s all-new countdown show The Very VERY Best Of The 70s. In this exclusive first look at the series’ third episode—airing Thursday, May 30 at 8pE/5pP—Morgan FairchildAnson WilliamsGeorge Wallace, and more examine the era’s top “Stand-Up Comedians.”

Of course, no discussion of the 70s’ best comics would be complete without Rodney Dangerfield, the beloved star of films such as Caddyshack and Back To School, and the beleaguered everyman who could “get no respect.” Though, as fellow comedy trailblazer George Wallace notes, Dangerfield did not become popular until later in life, he was able to leave a lasting impact that has continued to influence and inspire generations of comedians. In a nod to the timeless nature of the funnyman’s humor, Anson Williams says, “Rodney Dangerfield to this day makes me laugh,” while Morgan Fairchild remarks on his authentic persona as “that kind of comedian that had been through the mill.” Watch the clip here.
