It is with deep regret we report that Legend Jerry Lewis has passed today August 20, 2017.  Lewis, the brash slapstick comic who seemed to be joined at the hip with Dean Martin in the 50s, also played a lot of other roles later in life.  He played in “The Bellboy” and “The Nutty Professor” and also appeared in a few later films such as Martin Scorsese’s “The King of Comedy,” but Jerry was the King of the very famous annual Labor Day Muscular Dystrophy Telethon.  He was the leader for many years and raised over $2.5 billion before being relieved in 2011.  We will miss your Jerry.  Thanks for all the laughs and lives you changed!
