Marty Allen got his start in the comedy world performing at nightclubs while going to college during the day. It became so lucrative for him, that he eventually quit college to pursue comedy full time. It was shortly thereafter that he became part of the popular ’50s comedy duo Allen and Rossi with fellow comedian Steve Rossi. Together, the two toured the country, released several hit comedy albums, performed more than 40 times on the “Ed Sullivan Show” and starred in the comedic film “The Last of the Secret Agents.” Allen then conquered dramatic roles with appearances on television and in film, including “Mister Jericho” and “The Ballad of Billie Blue,” as well as several appearances on “Hollywood Squares” and other popular TV game shows. Allen and his wife of 25 years, Karon Kate Blackwell, perform together across the country, on cruise ships and often in their hometown of Las Vegas.
