Lewis, the comedian whose fundraising telethons became as famous as his hit movies, has died according to his publicist. After a period of absence from the big screen, Lewis made a triumphant return in Martin Scorsese's 1982 film The King of Comedy, alongside Robert De Niro. Martin played the part of the cool, smooth operator while Lewis, as his sidekick, played an eccentric with a silly grin and high-pitched voice. He was an innovator. When I met him, I feel apart, just sobbed. According to Vanity Fair, Jerry hated surprises but he got a doozy on September 5, 1976, when Dean Martin strolled on stage after mutual pal Frank Sinatra told Jerry he had a "friend" who wanted to come out and say hi. I was fortunate to have seen him a few times over the past couple of years. France's adoration of Lewis became a running joke in the US.
Late-night host Jimmy Kimmelcalled Lewis a "genius comedian" and "as a Las Vegan, what I miss most". He sang, he acted, he made people laugh - frequently from the comfort of a long-running Las Vegas residency. "France. will remember his life, his silhouette, his voice, his legendary comedy".
Lewis died in his home on Sunday morning at the age of ninety-one.
"Legendary entertainer Jerry Lewispassed away peacefully today of natural causes at 91 at his home w/ family by his side", said a Lewis' family in a statement to entertainment reporter John Katsilometes.
The duo formed the Martin and Lewis comedy team in 1946 and started gaining national prominence, making many appearances on live television shows like their first one June 20, 1948, on "Toast of the Town" on CBS, later renamed "The Ed Sullivan Show".
Lewis starred in, produced and directed many films including "The Delicate Delinquent" in 1957, "The Bellboy" in 1960 and "The Nutty Professor" in 1963.
Lewis had been touring Australia to raise money for the country's Muscular Dystrophy Foundation, which is separate from the American association, where he served as president. In the last four decades or so, Lewis appeared in Martin Scorsese's The King Of Comedy, Daniel Noah's Max Rose, and the infamously awful (and rarely seen) Holocaust drama The Day The Clown Cried.
