How tall was Rodney Dangerfield?
Raised on 22 November 1921 in Deer Park, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York, Rodney Dangerfield was Jacob Cohen. He was the son of Dorothy "Dotty" (Teitelbaum) and Phillip Cohen who played under the name Phil Roy in vaudeville. In 1971, Rodney Dangerfield stole a small supporting role in the film The Projectionist (1970). He had cemented his reputation as a comedian by the mid-1970s, continually tugging at his red hat, often expressing little regard for him. His big break came with his performances on Saturday Night Live (1975), taking himself to a much wider audience, and many times becoming hilarious. Dangerfield was, with the film Caddyshack (1980), a staple of American comedy in 1980.
