Martin & Lewis

Though their present show-biz personas (Martin like a boozy crooner, Lewis as an obnoxious telethon host) seem miles aside, at onetime Martin & Lewis were arguably the final great comedy team to exist. Their tv, nightclub, and film appearances were unequalled successes, producing them youngsters heroes and the latest act in the united states. Martin made an ideal foil for Lewis’s hyperactive antics, plus they worked like a well-oiled machine for nearly ten years. But quickly Martin sick and tired of his diminishing participation within their scripts and Lewis’s ego got the very best of them, resulting in their eventual separation in 1956.
