Comedian Steve Rossi dies at 82


Recommended Posts

From the Las Vegas Sun:



Steve Rossi was never at the end of his story. He always had one more tale to tell, another tantalizing anecdote, more delicious detail to unveil about his time as a member of the legendary comedy team Allen & Rossi.

“There are things I’ve never told anyone about when we were on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’ with The Beatles that nobody has heard,” Rossi would say in the later months of his life, as if bracing for a big finish. “We experienced so much. We’ll get together soon and talk about it.”

An entertainer with deceptive range and a magnetic personality, Rossi died just before 2 p.m. today at a Las Vegas hospice at age 82. He had suffered from cancer in his lungs, esophagus and liver. Family and friends, including his wife of 11 years, Karma, surrounded him at the time of his passing. Tentative plans are for a memorial service at Palm Eastern Mortuary on Friday.




Marty Allen is still alive and kicking at 92.
