Rodney Dangerfield was an American stand-up comedian, actor, producer, screenwriter and comedian known for the catchphrase “I don’t get no respect!” and his monologues on that theme. At the age of 15, he began to write for stand-up comedians, and he himself began to perform at a resort in Ellenville. He struggled financially for nine years, at one point performing as a singing waiter until he was fired, and also working as a performing acrobatic diver before giving up show business to take a job selling aluminum siding to support his wife and family. He later said that he was so little known then that “at the time I quit, I was the only one who knew I quit!”
