Marty Allen and Karon Kate Blackwell

AIR DATE: September 26, 2011

Marty Allen is 89 years old but getting on stage and performing comes as naturally to him as it did when he first got started. Allen was one half of the comedy duo Allen and Rossi where his act had him play a lovable buffoon next to the dapper Steve Rossi. Over his career he's also taken on serious roles. For the past twenty years Marty Allen and his wife Karon Kate Blackwell have performed on stage together. Marty Allen joins us to discuss his long career and performing with his wife.
