Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis were the hottest act in America during the early 50's. Dean Martin was the straight man and Jerry Lewis added the comedy.

The pair met in 1945 but didn't perform together as a duo until July 1946 at Atlantic City's 500 Club. Before they teamed up Martin was a nightclub singer, while Lewis did a comedy act in which he lip-synced to records. As a team, they worked in nightclubs, radio, television and films. Their separate identities helped them launch successful solo careers after they parted ways.

In April of 2012 Tony Lewis placed a long distance phone call to Las Vegas after watching Tom Stevens performing on YouTube as Dean Martin. They talked about teaming up, and little did they know what would come about in the year to follow.


The both of them just 'clicked' and this led to performances in Australia, around the US, Las Vegas, and US TV shows - pretty much following the same path as Martin and Lewis. They were quickly becoming an act in demand.

The act is in a class all its own. Never have two artists captured the very essence and chemistry of the celebrities they perform as have Tom Stevens (Dean Martin) and Tony Lewis (Jerry Lewis). These two incredible performers have each had success on their own, very much like Martin and Lewis.

Since his first appearance at the Dean Martin Festival in 1998, Tom Stevens has earned his title as "The Best Dean Martin Tribute Artist". Even Dean Martin's daughter Deana said "I've never seen anybody look and sound more like my Daddy." Having spent the last 11 years in Las Vegas, Tom has amazed audiences with his uncanny tributes to over 100 celebrities.

Together they are undeniably a one of a kind show that will make you feel as if Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis are still performing together today. Not only will this show bring back memories to those who remember the Martin and Lewis era, but will also entertain a whole new generation of fans who will grow to respect the talents of these two tribute artists, hailed as the best in the world.

Both performers are currently performing in Las Vegas and we're lucky to have them in Adelaide as they're only visiting two Australian cities.
