An Evening with Jerry Lewis
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.
