Legendary Comedian Marty Allen & Co-Star Karon Kate Blackwell to Perform at Plaza Hotel & Casino Oct. 24-26
September 12, 2013 by VegasNews.com
Beginning on Thursday, Oct. 24, legendary comedian Marty Allen and co-star Karon Kate Blackwell will take the stage of the classic showroom at the Plaza Hotel & Casino for a special three-night engagement.
In the 1970s and 80s, Allen made hundreds of television appearances, becoming a regular on “Hollywood Squares.” He also appeared on “Circus of the Stars,” in a cameo on “The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!,” as a guest star on game shows such as “Password”, and in ten made-for-television movies.
At only 91 years of age, Allen has no intention of retiring and still works a full year and runs two miles on a treadmill daily.
“I feel like the Energizer Bunny. I just keep going,” Allen remarks. “I enjoy it. I can’t stop. People ask me where I get all the energy from to keep going and I joke that I’m on the pill. They believe me and want to know where to buy it for themselves.”
Allen met his co-star Blackwell in the mid-1980s, and the duo began performing together, combining his comedy with her music.
Marty Allen and co-star Karon Kate Blackwell will appear at the Plaza on Oct. 24, 25 & 26, at 7 p.m., and tickets for their limited engagement will be available at the Plaza’s box office or online at www.plazahotelcasino.com.
