DEAN MARTIN AND JERRY LEWIS SHOW Old-Time Radio Series
Series DEAN MARTIN AND JERRY LEWIS SHOW
Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis were far too visual as performers to be a successful radio act -- or so the conventional wisdom went. But nobody could convince the raucous nightclub comics of that -- and they proved that conventional wisdom wrong, enjoying a four-year run on NBC. Here they stressed the vocal elements of their act, with Dean's smooth crooning and smoother personality placed in high contrast against Jerry's honking, wailing, bellowing rambunctiousness. The usual parade of Hollywood guest stars broke up the antics, and while the program suffered from its lack of a visual element -- Lewis's on-stage mugging for the studio audience often generated reactions that left listeners at home wondering what was so funny -- it did manage to capture much of the energy that made the act so successful on stage, film and television.
