• Jerry Lewis dies at 91

    From CNN Breaking News@VERT to no-reply@siteservices.cnn.com on Sun Aug 20 12:13:12 2017
    Jerry Lewis, the slapstick-loving comedian, innovative filmmaker and generous fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, died Sunday[1] after a brief illness, his publicist Candi Cazau said. He was 91.

    Cazau would not elaborate on the illness from which Lewis was suffering.

    Lewis first gained fame for his frenzied comedy-and-music act [2]with singer Dean Martin. When that ended in the mid-1950s, Lewis went solo, and by the early '60s, he had become a top draw in movies such as "The Bellboy," "The Nutty Professor" and "The Patsy." Along the way, he pioneered the use of videotape and closed-circuit monitors in moviemaking, a now-standard technique called video assist.

    Not sure why but I could never take more than 10 seconds of him in anything. something about his personality that just grinded on my like fingernails on a chalboard.
    and Paul Rubens (peewee Herman was even worse than that for me.
    Not putting Jerry Lewis down its just one of those things in life, I just can't watch him.
