Steve Rossi, 82, Half Of Legendary Mid-Century Comedy Duo

“With Mr. Rossi as the good-looking one who sang and [Marty] Allen as the zany, childlike one who got the laughs, Allen and Rossi were reminiscent of the hottest comedy team of the early 1950s, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. But whereas Martin and Lewis specialized in broad physical comedy, Allen and Rossi’s humor was mostly verbal.”
