TV legend Marty Allen celebrates 90th birthday -- by working

Marty Allen and Karon Kate Blackwell.

Allen is best known for his mid-century comedy partnership with singer Steve Rossi. The duo was featured on more than 40 episodes of “The Ed Sullivan Show,” including a night in February 1964 on which they shared the Sullivan bill with The Beatles, and so achieved cultural near-ubiquity for several years at midcentury. (The duo's appearance was The Beatles' second "Sullivan" show, Feb. 16, 1964).
The act split in 1969. Allen worked steadily on game shows and in TV movies for the next couple of decades, and has pursued a third act in recent years performing in Las Vegas and on cruise ships with his wife, Karon Kate Blackwell.
