America's comic genius
Jerry Lewis is a comic genius and his legend and films endure over the years. I loved him in Cinderfella and the Nutty Professor. There cannot be enough accolades to applaud his contributions to comedy and film. TCM please DEVOTE A DAY TO THIS MASTER OF COMEDY.
Jerry Lewis - The Last Great Comedian
I love a great comedic movie and none are better than the antics of Jerry Lewis, with or without Dean. Jerry knew how to not only make a person smile, but laugh aloud. Although the last decade or two has been filled with controversy, I really don't care. I look at seeing his movies as a privilege I have had that many of younger generations may never know. How sad for them. Sadly I have seen very few of Jerry's movies on TCM, there were two fairly recently that were not his best. TCM, please add more of Jerry's great comedy to your programming.
There will never be another Jerry...

I recently caught the premier of "Method to the Madness of Jerry Lewis", a new documentary from Gregg Barson on Encore when it premiered (December 17, 2011)-- totally by accident. I loved it so thoroughly that it has created a revived obsession with all things Jerry for me! Having grown up in the late 60's-70's, I always loved JL in his movies and caught the MDA Telethon every year. This movie has taught me things I never knew about Jerry (provoking me into more and more research). Among other things, I never knew that he created Video Assist and how much he was involved with every film on so many levels. More importantly, gazing upon Jerry with my 40-something eyes and sensibilities I was shocked to realize how smoking hot, handsome, sexy and then some he was! Now I am enjoying all of his old films for more than just laughs!!! LOL. Long live Mr. Lewis--we will never have the good fortune to experience another like him. Mary Barberio Conrad
Pure Comic Genius
- Bruce Reber
To me Jerry Lewis has always been one of the top (if not THE top) comic talents in film. I have seen most of his films and I particularly like the early ones he made with Dean Martin (The Caddy, Living It Up, Sailor Beware, etc.). I also like many of his later films (The Nutty Professor, The Disorderly Orderly, The Bellboy, etc.). I have read the book he wrote (Dean and Me) about his life when he was with Martin, after they broke up and his other experiences. I think the reason they finally broke up was that Martin became annoyed at Jerry because he felt the audience was paying more attention to Jerry's comedy than to his singing. I think Martin also grew tired of playing straight man to Jerry after 10 years as one of the greatest comic teams ever. I hope TCM pays tribute to this great comic talent with a SOTM festival of his best films soon, especially the ones we don't see often or not at all. Whenever I'm down and need a good laugh, I know a Jerry Lewis film is just the thing.
What can't you say about Jerry? He's a great comedian all the way around. They don't make them like him any more. One of my personal favorites is The Nutty Professior. I recall this as the first of his movies that i had seen and fell in love with it. If only we had more comedians like jerry our future might be a little brighter. Annie

Jerry Lewis is the greatest; not only is he hot, but he is extremely talented. I am the biggest fan of Dean, Jerry, Frank, Sammy, Peter, Joey, and all them. I never get tired of his act or his looks (especially not his looks !)He is, and always, will be the greatest !
Jerry Lewis is an amzingly talented man. I have watches all the films that he and Dean Martin made and they are charming and hilarious! Jerry Lewis is also a renowned director, singer, producer, and film writer! If you haven't watched his movies, you are missing out!!!
Jerry Lewis - What's Not To Love?
I can't express enough, the effect Jerry Lewis has had on my life. I LOVE Jerry, he never fails to make me laugh. When you pair him with Dean - wowsa, what a duo. Then you add the MDA stuff and you have an all around good guy. I have seen him perform live and don't miss his movies when they are on. Once again I say, Jerry Lewis - what's not to love?
Jerry is the hottes, funniest, most talented man/comedien EVER! period! I love u Jerry! :)
Jerry Lewis IS the greatest comedian of all time, no one will ever be able to top his abilities. He always gave 1,000%. Him and Dean were the greatest comedy team to ever stage together. Dean, you're truly missed.

The great Jerry Lewis
Jerry Lewis: The great comedian of his time. Amazingly funny, increadibly talented, and extremely handsome.
A wonderful performer.
Jerry Lewis is a wonderful actor. He is able to just glue you to the screen. I don't know how anyone could not love Jerry Lewis!

Jerry Lewis is probaly the most entertaining male comedian I've come by. Sure you've got Jim Carey and Chris Farley but Lewis was...is the forefather of great physical comedy. He's also got that monkeyish charm and high-pitched voice in his arsnel. No matter how many years go by, his material never gets old. I highly recomend reading his book Dean and Me--chronicling (in freakishly deep detail) his 10-year partnership with Dean Martin.
jerry! he could sing, dance, write,act. He can never be toped. He is the american icon.
the greatest comedian of all time!
