We give you a taste of comedy with the comedy duo of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. The app give you access to over 70 episodes of the hilarious Martin and Louis Radio Show.

Martin and Lewis were an American comedy team, comprising of singer Dean Martin (as the "straight man") and comedian Jerry Lewis as the comedic "foil".Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis first met in 1945; their debut as a duo occurred at Atlantic City's 500 Club on July 24/25, 1946.

The duo performed at nightclubs for several years. Some of the Network executives caught a nightclub act of Martin and Lewis. They were instantly won over by their chemistry. They tried them on television, but radio was a more popular venue, so they moved them on over and made plans for The Martin & Lewis Show.

The Martin & Lewis Show went on the air on April 3, 1949, still searching for a sponsor. The network spent $10,000 per show, paying each star $1,000 a week. After a riotous movie and further difficulty finding a radio sponsor for their show, The Martin & Lewis Show went off the air after broadcasting what they thought was their last old time radio show on January 30, 1950. However, they couldn't keep these two down for long, because they were rip roaring and ready to go on another self-titled radio program just over a year later. Meanwhile, they gained popularity with their appearances on The Colgate Comedy Hour and The Big Show. With all these appearances, they used up a lot of their new material, and so tried to do fewer shows until they could come up with some more laughs. But Martin and Lewis were in-demand and so instead of doing less, they were asked to create The Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis Show.
