Marty Allen, the 86-year-old stand-up comedian, will be the celebrity VIP guest on "Dancing with the Stars" on Oct. 21.
The long-time Las Vegas resident may be the best dancer to ever grace the TV series' stage. After World War II, Allen sold dance lessons door-to-door to supplement his income as a comic while attending USC.
