Jerry Lewis isn't a comedian. He's comedy incarnate, an absolute auteur of the form, and a national treasure. It's not just that oft-imitated, high-pinched voice that turned phrases like "froyndleyven!" and "hey, lady!" into popular punch lines. Nor is it the way he's mined a Fort Knox of comedy gold from pratfalls and pantomime. The magic of Jerry Lewis works like this: he has funny bones, and his heart is as big as his mouth. In fact, he may be the most generous funnyman in entertainment history, having received an honorary Oscar in 2009 for his humanitarian efforts and hosting telethons for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
In a rare live appearance, the 87-year-old legend reviews his eight-decade career with humor and warmth. Jerry shares memories of vaudeville days, Hollywood stardom, and foiling Dean Martin through impeccably delivered jokes and gags. Songs backed by a full orchestra, along with rare clips and montages of his favorite movie moments, make for a multimedia experience that remains timeless thanks to Lewis’s old-fashioned showmanship.
Bergen Performing Arts Center
In 2004—on a mission to bolster its community’s wellspring of creativity and education—the nonprofit Bergen Performing Arts Center took over the former John Harms Center, an art-deco-style movie and vaudeville palace built in 1922. Today, in the same antique theater where Frank Capra screened his first car chase, the Bergen Performing Arts Center hosts 150 yearly events that bring dance, music, and theatrical productions to an estimated 250,000 annual audience members. Networks such as HBO, PBS, and MTV all have filmed international broadcasts on Bergen Performing Arts Center’s stage, which has seen the likes of Diana Krall, Heart, and ZZ Top.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
