Marty and Karon currently perform on several cruise ships and at other venues each year. Marty also makes guest appearances throughout the year at various events around Las Vegas, Nevada.Marty turns 88 on March 23rd!

RIP Steve Rossi

Steve Rossi

It is hard to put into words... a great loss of a wonderfully-talented and a genuinely nice guy.

Steve and I were together as Allen & Rossi for over 15 years.  We had a thrilling show business  career and became one of the top comedy acts.  Still, today, the name Allen & Rossi brings a smile to our many fans.

I still remember the day Steve told me that we should team up.  Steve was physically handsome.  He had a warm sense of humor and a singing voice that made him a great straight man to my physically-crazy comedy.

We hit the heights of national success.  When it was finally over we parted ways amicably and remained close friends throughout the years.

Today many of Steve’s friends and family mourn his loss.  In my heart I say “Thank you God for the gift of a man named Steve Rossi that you sent into my life.”

Marty Allen
