38 Best Dean Martin Quotes from The King of Cool

Dean Martin, born Dino Paul Crocetti, was a famed American singer and actor whose career blossomed from a comedy partnership with Jerry Lewis into successful solo endeavors.

Born in Steubenville, Ohio in 1917, Martin initially worked in local steel mills, became a prizefighter and sang in local nightspots before being discovered by bandleader Sammy Watkins.

His casual onstage interactions with comedian Jerry Lewis in 1946 sparked a popular comedy duo, culminating in 16 joint Hollywood films.


After the partnership dissolved in 1956, Martin flourished solo, recording hit songs like “That’s Amore”, “Memories Are Made of This” and “Everybody Loves Somebody”, while maintaining his acting career in acclaimed films such as “The Young Lions” and “Rio Bravo”.

He also collaborated with Rat Pack members in films like “Ocean’s Eleven”. Martin was a television staple, hosting “The Dean Martin Show” and “The Dean Martin Comedy Hour”.
