Just released today: SIDE BY SIDE: Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis on TV and Radio, published by BearManor.

Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis were the most successful comedy team of the 20th century, but if you’ve only seen them in movies, you haven’t really seen them.

For years their only legacy was 16 starring films that shoehorned them into predictable situations far removed from the mutual affection and uninhibited slapstick that captivated audiences. That changed when their starring appearances on The Colgate Comedy Hour were released to home video. Fans of old-time radio have long known of their fine work in that medium. Television and radio gave the team freedom to improvise, as well as showcase favorite night club routines.

More than a chronicle of classic comedy, SIDE BY SIDE tells the Martin & Lewis story: two friends whose individual ambitions gradually drove a wedge between them that carried into their work. It recounts in detail their legendary feuds and final split, and their equally legendary reunions. ... 596&sr=1-1
