Steve Rossi

Comedian/actor

Born - 25 May 1932, New York City, USA
Died - 22 June 2014

Jovial, round-faced New Yorker, born Joseph Tafarella, who formed one half of the comedy double act Allen & Rossi with burly Marty Allen (born 1922). An enormous amount of TV and nightclub work for the duo - Allen was the singing straight man, patterned after Dean Martin -was punctuated by a few, largely unsuccessful, film appearances: The Last of the Secret Agents? (1966), The Man from O.R.G.Y. (1970) and Allen & Rossi Meet Dracula and Frankenstein (1974). Later, on his own, Rossi made appearances in The Mexican (2001), Vegas, City of Dreams (2001) and Sadie and the Slot Machines (2006), his last. He died from cancer of the oesophagus.
