Fans will also have a chance to win dinner with Marty at Downtown Grand’s award-winning Triple George Grill. Downtown Grand will draw winners* on March 22 and 23 at the Casino Stage one hour after the show. Five winners will be chosen each night. 
Following the show, guests can meet and greet with Marty Allen in the casino, where he will be conducting an autograph signing to promote his new book, “Hello Dere”, an autobiography about his remarkable 70-year career in showbiz.

During the 1950s, Marty worked as an opening act for stars such as Sarah Vaughan, Eydie Gorme and Nat King Cole. It was at this time he became part of the comedy team of Allen & Rossi. The duo comedy team produced a string of hit comedy albums, made 40 appearances on “The Ed Sullivan Show” and starred in the film The Last of the Secret Agents. Allen & Rossi appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show” the same night as The Beatles.

Throughout the 1970s and into the 80s, Marty made hundreds of television appearances, becoming a regular on “Hollywood Squares”. He also appeared on “Circus of the Stars”, on games shows such as “Password” and in ten made-for-television movies.
