Allen and Rossi appear at 6mins 8s into the program, or enjoy the entire episode.
Steve is thrilled to be among the A list entertainers who will lend their humor to the ShowBiz Roast of Oscar Goodman on July 23rd at the Stratosphere.
As a performer with over 50 years of roasting other entertainers you can bet Steve will bring in the brutal tongue and cheek revelations you expect to hear about his friend Oscar Goodman. You may recall that Steve and Marty were roasted at the Friars club of New York in 1965.

This event is a benefit for Oscar Goodman’s charity Miracle League of Las Vegas.
