I always liked him, or found him entertaining. Like most comedians, his RL was far more complex than the simpleton he portrayed.

Never one of my favorites but he did have a passion for "Jerry's kids". RIP

His energy and generosity will be missed in this sad world.

Cinderfella was brilliant…as was The Nutty Professor. He was a very funny and talented man which was only upstaged by his generosity. RIP Mr. Lewis.

How ironic and seemingly symbolic that Mr. Lewis's passing would come so close to Labor Day, the time when his beloved MDA Telethon would air.

During my school-aged years, along with Labor Day, his 20+ hour telethon (which I eagerly tuned in to over the years) signaled the unofficial end of summer vacation. Whether you "got" him or not, he was undeniably a titanic force for entertainment: comedian, actor, singer, live performer, philanthropist, and, at one time, the namesake of a chain of movie theaters. "Silly", "goofy", or "lighthearted", his movies entertained millions (and possibly billions given his international appeal) over a career that spanned almost 70 years. His talent and style has influenced many, many others, but he stands alone as the perfect and proverbial "second banana".

"You'll Never Walk Alone".

Godspeed, Mr. Lewis, and thank you VERY, very much.

If I can, I never miss one of his movies – NOT 'films,'
please !

One of my favorites: The Ladies' Man

Thanks, Jerry, many many thanks for providing
light during the dark times.

RIP

Am I in error, believing that Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin actually didn't like each other? They worked well together. That's not the same thing.

I think the animosity at the end of their 10 year run came from the feeling that it was time to move on. I believe they never "disliked" each other though.

Also did a good job in an episode of "Law & Order SVU" playing Richard Belzer's dad.

They got on well together but after ten years Dean Martin wanted to move on and dissolved the partnership in acrimonious terms. They resolved their differences years later.
