The duo of Dean Martin (“straight man”) and Jerry Lewis (“comedian”) first
met in 1945 and staged their first show together as a replacement act when
the scheduled singer was unable to perform at Club 500 in Atlantic City, NJ.

Their success at the club led to a series of well-paying engagements up
and down the Eastern seaboard, culminating with a triumphant run at New
York’s Copacabana. The team split up in 1956.
