More than a week after undergoing heart surgery, comedian Rodney Dangerfield remains hospitalized in intensive care and hooked to a respirator, his publicist said Thursday.

The 82-year-old comic -- famed for his self-deprecating one-liners and the catchphrase "I can't get no respect" -- underwent a heart valve replacement at the UCLA Medical Center last Wednesday.

Since the operation, Dangerfield "has been in intensive care, resting in stable condition," spokesman Kevin Sasaki said.

He said the comedian remained on a respirator but he knew of no complications stemming from the surgery.
