Rodney Dangerfield was an hilarious American stand-up comedian and actor known for his "I don't get no respect" routine. He starred in the hit movie comedies such as, 'Caddyshack' and 'Back to School' in the 1980s.

Fun Fact

On the day of Dangerfield’s death, the randomly generated Joke of the Day on his website happened to be “I tell ya I get no respect from anyone. I bought a cemetery plot. The guy said, ‘There goes the neighborhood!'” This led his wife, Joan Dangerfield, to choose “There goes the neighborhood” as the epitaph on his headstone.
