Marty Allen & Karon Kate Blackwell
When Marty Allen uses his wits he is the reigning champion of comedians. With the sensational vocal cords of partner, Karon Kate Blackwell, the Allen and Blackwell team is a stellar performance. The two of them together are still one of the best comedy/straight routines on the strip today and the reason simply is “ I enjoy what I’m doing, or else I wouldn’t be doing it today” Says Allen. When you see the show, you will see that he is the Marty Allen of thirty years ago. After performing on cruise ships to and from Alaska, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, Marty and Karon have settled back home to do their act in the showroom at the gold coast hotel and casino.

Marty is one of those old but new again performers that are bombarding the showrooms at local casinos. It’s amazing to see a man who was part of the few great comedy teams that graced the television screen still perform today. He is among the last generation of the old Vegas style performers (Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, and Nat “King” Cole). We will probably never see a group of entertainers like these again. To experience their show is to be able to experience the way it was in Las Vegas. When the Ed Sullivan Show was at its prime you could find the likes of Mary Allen and straight man, Steve Rossi, as regulars on this popular prime time show.
Unlike most performers, Marty is one that has stood the test of time and he “enjoys every minute of it!” Throughout the 1970’s and into the 80’s, Marty made hundreds of TV appearances “ I went up and down the dial I did all the talk shows and even became a regular on Hollywood squares.” Says Allen. With just as much pizazz as he possessed thirty years ago, you can catch Marty and his infamous “Hello Dere” along with his lovely partner Karon singing her sultry “ Wedding Vows” song at the Gold Coast through August.
Karon Kate Blackwell is the other half of this outstanding duo. She is known for her Jerry Lee Lewis style piano skills and her vast musical abilities. As a vocalist she can glide effortlessly from rhythm and blues to country, gospel or to a ballad. Her rang of singing is incomparable to most. “ I heard her sing and it knocked me out” commented Marty. Her popular Wedding Bows song is suck a hit at every show, that they sell the sheet music after each performance. As a humanitarian, all the proceeds form her CD’s and sheet music are given to the Child Haven charity. Besides her superb singing abilities Karon is known for her exemplary straight performances. “She is a phenomenal straight women. “Karon can hold her own with some of the greatest people.” Said Marty.
Marty and Karon met fifteen years ago at Los Angeles restaurant. Neither one of them knew that they would be performing together on cruise ships and in showrooms of popular casinos. But here they are and as strong as ever. One thing that they pride themselves on is that they do not use profanity of vulgarity in their shows whatsoever. They have proven over and over again that you don’t need to use profanity in every sentence to make an audience laugh. It is their clean and humorous routines that have gotten Marty inducted into the Casino Legends Hall of fame and accomplishment to be proud of!
Aside form his comic routines, Marty is a superb dancer who at one time went door to door selling dance lessons to women. “ I finally had to give it up. It was costing me a fortune in new shoes and foot power,” laughs Marty. The way that he jitterbugs can jolt an audience into a haze of enthusiasm. You can still catch his swift feet in his routines.
With the music of Karon and the comedy from Marty this show is one to be seen by all. The classic straight man comedy routine is definitely one worth watching. Look for Marty Allen and Karon Kate Blackwell at the Gold Coast Showroom from June through August. To miss Marty Allen and Karon Kate Black well is to miss entertainment at its best!
