Marty Allen, Wild-Eyed Comedy Star, Is Dead at 95

During the 1964 presidential campaign, for example, Mr. Allen portrayed the ultraconservative Republican candidate Barry Goldwater — although he made no attempt to sound like him, and began the interview with “Hello dere!” — and said he was confident of winning “all 13 states.”

Within a few years after teaming up in the late 1950s, Allen and Rossi had become a familiar presence in the nation’s top nightclubs and on television variety shows.
