5. Lasorda Shares His Sense of Humor
There are hundreds of documented examples of Tommy Lasorda being the funniest man in the room, a phenomenon that hasn’t dissipated at all in recent years — in fact, the man crossed over and appealed to the current generation with his appearance on Barstool’s “Pardon My Take” podcast in recent years.
Always quick with a comeback or a quip, we present this 1984 example of Lasorda recalling the “funniest joke he’d ever heard” for a television special.
Hollywood his whole life, Lasorda’s on-screen career includes cameos in “Hart to Hart,” “Simon & Simon,” Rodney Dangerfield’s “Ladybugs,” and “Everybody Loves Raymond”.
Yes, the man loved to ham it up, and the examples are nearly endless.
