Duke Mitchell and Sammy Petrillo were THE great dada comedy/music team of the 50's; Sammy Petrillo channelled Jerry Lewis in a way that creeped Jerry out so much that he efeectively stopped Petrillo from doing "Jerry" ever again.

Here's a great interview w/ Sammy, where he talks about the team, and Duke:

Interesting that Dean Martin tried to promote them after he split with Jerry Lewis.
