For stand-up comedian and actor Tom Dreesen, being at a celebrity roast is nothing new. The show business veteran used to take part in the Dean Martin roasts. It was no surprise then that we caught up with him at the roast for actor Joe Mantegna [see here] hosted by Deana Martin [see here] a few weeks ago. Deana is, of course, the daughter of Dean Martin. The roast tradition continues.
For over a decade Mr. Dreesen toured with Frank Sinatra as his opening act. Speaking of Frank, he told us, “He was the greatest story show business has ever known.” Tom Dreesen was also a frequent guest on The Tonight Show, during the days of Johnny Carson. See our photo above.
Today, Tom has a one man show called An Evening of Laughter and Memories of Sinatra, where he performs some of his best comedy routines and shares stories of his time with Frank.
To hear why Tom Dreesen thought Sinatra was the best story in show business history and more, listen to the entire CYInterview below:
