The Deana Martin Celebrity Roast of Dennis Bono at The South Point

Dean and Deana Martin

Not only is my wonderful friend, Deana Martin, performing two evening shows at the South Point Showroom, this coming Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. but she’s hosting a down-to-earth celebrity roast just like her father used to host for national television. Last weekend she and her husband, John, travelled to Steubenville, Ohio, to help the town celebrate her father’s 100th birthday–had he lived. “I must’ve shook three thousand hands,” she said, holding out her right hand which was still a shining red.

 

Deana Martin, legendary songstress and daughter of Dean Martin, will host The Deana Martin Celebrity Roast honoring the ‘Man of the Hour’ Dennis Bono, in the South Point Showroom on Monday, June 26 at 6 p.m., with doors opening at 5 p.m. To celebrate Bono’s 70th birthday, entertainment legends on stage and screen will take part in the roast as well including Robert Davi, Clint Holmes, Lorraine Hunt-Bono, Robin Leach, Rich Little, Tony LoBianco, and Frankie Scinta.

Following the roast, an after party hosted by Chris Phillips (Zowie Bowie) and Dennis Blair will take place with a variety of musical performances in the Grandview Lounge at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 7:30 p.m. The birthday celebration doubles as a fundraising event for Opportunity Village, a local Las Vegas nonprofit that provides services and resources that help adults with intellectual disabilities lead enriched and productive lives.

Roseanne, one of America’s funniest comedians, has another side that not many people have seen. Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, she worked as a dishwasher during her teenage years. She worked doing stand-up comedy until her 1985 appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson,” which thrust her into the limelight.  In 1987, HBO offered her a show of her own, “On Location: The Roseanne Barr Show,” which was canceled after a short time. In 1989, Roseanne starred opposite Meryl Streep and Ed Begley Jr. in “She-Devil” and her sitcom, “Roseanne,” ran for nine seasons on ABC. In 1996, she was nominated and won a Golden Globe Award. After “Roseanne” was canceled, she went to Broadway to play The Wicked Witch of the West in “The Wizard of Oz,” to rave reviews. In 2014, Barr starred as judge on “Last Comic Standing” and her hit show “Roseanne” will reportedly make its return in 2018.

 

 

“Man in Black: A Tribute to Johnny Cash” will bring Cash’s classic hits to The Orleans Showroom on June 30 and July 1.  Johnny Cash rocked the country music scene with his unique baritone vocals and acoustic guitar.
