Back to the Dean Martin Show - 06/22/2019


Felix J Denaeu, Jr. as Dean Martin

Felix was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He grew up with such television favorites as, The Ed Sullivan Show, The Jackie Gleason Show, and of course The Dean Martin Show. He collected almost all of Dean’s albums of the time and would practice impersonating him on his record player. He would also imitate a number of other celebrities as well.

After graduating high school, Felix joined the U.S. Navy, and continued to act and impersonate people while off duty. On his free time from the ship/base, Felix would go to Las Vegas to catch some shows. When he went to see Dean Martin at the MGM Grand, he was able to get on stage with Dean on a couple separate occasions, and performed his impersonation of him. Dean was pleasantly amazed with the likeness, and said, “That’s pretty damn good, kid.”

After the Navy, Felix went onto college and received his Bachelor of Science in Communication / Theatre Arts at the University of Wisconsin, River Falls. He auditioned for Walt Disney World and landed the job to open Disney/MGM Studios, bringing him to Central Florida.

Felix currently works for Universal Studios Orlando, impersonating a variety of movie celebrities and performing in their shows. He has been with Universal since its opening.
