The Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis Show Ep. #90

Classic Radio Theater

Enjoy two free comedy episodes of The Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis Show w/ guests, Marlene Dietrich and Rosemary Clooney A) 3/21/52 w/ guest, Marlene Dietrich B) 9/16/52 w/ guest, Rosemary Clooney In 1949, NBC tapped the comedy duo of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis as a Summer replacement for The Bob Hope Show. Dean and Jerry were popular nightclub performers with sold out crowds everywhere they played. NBC offered them Bob Hope’s vacated timeslot and committed to one of the biggest build-ups ever given to a pair of newcomers to radio comedy. Dean and Jerry didn’t disappoint and proved that they could dish out their distinctive brand of zanyism over the airwaves in a big way. The Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis Show was more than just Martin’s golden voice and Lewis’ zany antics -- the network insisted on a weekly celebrity guest which included Dick Powell, Henry Fonda, Bing Crosby, John Garfield, Vincent Price, Jane Russell and even Bob Hope himself. The weekly budget was a pricey $10,000, but after a short while, the series attracted a sponsor and executives at NBC patted themselves on the back for establishing a hit show that also became a financial success. With that kind of budget, NBC could afford Norman Lear, the comedy genius later responsible for All in the Family and Sanford and Son, as writer. The success of the radio series led to Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis also appearing as monthly hosts for NBC’s Colgate Comedy Hour, a highly-rated television show. NBC used the television program to cross-promote the radio program, even recycling some of the radio sketches for the television counterpart. Film producer Hal Wallis jumped on the Martin & Lewis bandwagon, signing the boys to a multi-picture film contract. Their film comedies were box office gold catapulting them to mega-stardom. With meteoritic success on radio, TV and films, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis proved they were masters of all three commercial media. After their partnership ended in 1956, both went on to successful solo careers and neither would comment on the split nor consider a reunion.

What a CreepSeason 14, Episode 9Jerry LewisJerry Lewis was a comedian, actor, and director whose goofy comic style made him one of the most popular performers of the 1950s and ’60s. You might also know him as the guy that hosted the Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon that ran from 1966 until 2014.But he was also difficult, cruel, and an insecure egomaniac who couldn’t keep it in his pants. He was a sexist creep who sexually harassed and assaulted many of his female co-stars.Sources for this episode: The Hollywood ReporterPeople MagazineThe SunThe New York TimesNew York Times ObitVanity FairWashington PostBritannicaWikipediaBe sure to follow us on social media.
