The Martin & Lewis Tribute Appears Sunday, September 2-

The Martin and Lewis Tribute Appears Sunday, September 2 By Sandy Zimmerman (Photos by the Martin and Lewis Tribute Show)

I had the opportunity to interview Tom Stevens, a talented performer living in Las Vegas. Tony Lewis, the other half of the Martin and Lewis Tribute, lives in Australia and will be flying in next week for their appearance at the Suncoast Hotel.

It is amazing how Tony Lewis, from as far away as Australia, and another man, Tom Stevens, from across the globe living in the United States, could get together to produce a show!

For 27 years, Tony Lewis had been seeking a Dean Martin partner to join him and was blown away when seeing Tom Steven’s Dean Martin video. Tony knew Tom would be perfect! Tony and Tom met on the telephone and afterwards Tom enthusiastically photo-shopped his “Dean” picture next to Tony’s and the response was phenomenal.

The duo were booked in Australia before meeting in person! They only had a few months to create an act and sent everything back and forth until Tom arrived with only three days to rehearse their new act.

As two professionals, their success united the pair. Tony Lewis has 30 years of experience as Jerry Lewis in Australia while Tom Stevens appeared in Las Vegas celebrating more than 15 years and over 1,000 shows performing his tribute to Dean Martin.

Since Tom Stevens’ first appearance at the Dean Martin Festival in 1998, he received the “Best Dean Martin Tribute Artist” and Dean’s daughter agreed.

They both have amazed audiences and are known for their own shows yet together they truly are the essence of the famous duo. Tom and Tony chose some of the classic comic routines and have even added new ones to their show.

Many of the tribute artists don’t look like the celebrities but the resemblance is uncanny the way Tony and Tom really do! Tom is a singer and Tony, a comedian, just like Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.

The public loves these tribute shows and they are very popular today as a way to hear the songs and enjoy the tributes to their favorite performers.

I reviewed Dean Martin at Bally’s Hotel when he performed
by himself and Jerry Lewis the same at the South Point Hotel,
and am looking forward to seeing the Martin and Lewis Tribute,
Sunday, September 2, at 3 PM, in the Suncoast Hotel,
9090 Alta Drive and South Rampart.

Showtime is 3 p.m. Tickets start at $14.95 plus taxes and fees,
and can be purchased by calling Ticketmaster at 800.745.3000;
