Monty Aidem


Monty Aidem first entertained audiences on the radio, in cities including Atlanta, San Francisco, and Philadelphia, and during that time he also wrote topical comedy material for leading radio personalities across America. Eventually, he moved to Los Angeles and became a TV comedy writer.

His first TV writing job was on a revival of the ground-breaking series "Laugh-In", with the revival introducing a little-known performer named Robin Williams. Monty went on to write for stars including Bob Hope, John Wayne, and Dean Martin on various TV specials, including The Dean Martin Roasts. Soon, he became a staff writer for Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show. Later he wrote for other late night shows starring Joan Rivers, Alan Thicke and Pat Sajak, and Monty was Vicki Lawrence's writer on her Emmy-nominated daytime talk show. Monty also wrote for many comedians, including Frank Sinatra's longest-running opening act, comedian Tom Dreesen, and on several occasions for Mr. Sinatra himself.

Now, while Monty continues to write for Vicki Lawrence, he also performs a Frank Sinatra tribute and leads a Rat Pack Tribute with two co-stars from Las Vegas. Monty's been seen in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace, The Bellagio, The Venetian, The Mirage, Planet Hollywood and The Palms, plus at Hollywood's Sheraton Universal Studios, Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm, and across America in theaters, casinos and event centers, presenting his on-stage portrayal of Frank Sinatra in concert.
