Dick Van Dyke, whose memoir My Lucky Life In and Out of Show Business, made the New York Times Bestseller list, admits that his retirement plans have yet to work out.
With five Emmys, a Tony and a Grammy, Van Dyke, 88, has the zest for life that propelled him into the limelight with the Broadway and film version of Bye, Bye Birdie, “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and film classics “Mary Poppins” and “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.” More recently, Dick has appeared in the Ben Stiller comedy, “Night at the Museum” and just wrapped the third installment.

Since Dr. Mark Sloan solved his final crime, on the long running CBS Series, “Diagnosis Murder”, Dick’s “retirement” has also included returns to the stage with Chita Rivera in “A Dancer’s Life” as well as with brother Jerry Van Dyke in Neil Simon’s “The Sunshine Boys”
Dick’s life-long love of singing, especially acappella, has led to the formation of his singing group, The Vantastix. Started twelve years ago, “just for fun”, the guys have performed across the country at world class venues, including the Ford’s Theatre in Washington for President Obama.

He has also been tirelessly committed to his work at The Midnight Mission, Los Angeles’ downtown shelter for the troubled and homeless.
In honor of Dick’s on-going contribution to the world of entertainment and charity, he was the recipient of the 2013 SAG Life Achievement Award. The SAG Awards have become a very special place for Mr. Van Dyke. In 2007, when presenting the award to Julie Andrews, Dick met his future wife, makeup-artist and now occasional Vantastix vocalist, Arlene Silver. They were married on February 29, 2012, in Malibu.
