Martin and Lewis formed a fast friendship which led to their participation in each other's acts and the formation of a music-comedy team. Martin and Lewis's debut together occurred at Atlantic City 's Club on July 24, , and they were not well received. The owner, Skinny D'Amato, warned them that if they did not come up with a better act for their second show that night, they would be fired. Huddling in the alley behind the club, Lewis and Martin agreed to "go for broke", they divided their act between songs, skits, and ad-libbed material. They did slapstick, reeled off old vaudeville jokes, and did whatever else popped into their heads.
Just more leftist BS. Getting shot isn't close to being a leading cause of death for anybody, unless you're a black guy age 15-34. Then you're gonna get shot by another black guy. That's half the homicides.
