Jerry Lewis has been called "The King Of Comedy", the "Consummate Entertainer" and is one of the most recognized people on earth. As the writer, director, and producer of many of his feature films, Jerry Lewis is a comic auteur firmly in the tradition of Chaplin and Keaton. He is not only one of the biggest stars in history but also one of the most powerful. Performing since he was 5 (with his parents in the Catskills), Lewis has been a successful star in every entertainment medium. By the late '40's, with stage shows and regular radio and television appearances, Lewis and his performing partner, Dean Martin, were hailed as the most popular comedy duo in the nation. They made their film debut in 1949 and starred in 13 block buster comedies before their split in 1956. Lewis went on to star in over 25 films, 13 of which he directed including The Bellboy, The Ladies' Man, The Family Jewels, and The Nutty Professor.

In the 80's, Lewis garnered some of the best reviews of his career for his work in Martin Scorsese's The King of Comedy and also appeared in the major studio films Mr. Saturday Night and Funny Bones.

Jerry Lewis realized a lifelong dream when he starred on Broadway as Applegate in the successful 1994 revival of Damn Yankees. His 185 "standing room" performances were adored by audiences and critics. He went on to tour with the show and during its 2nd year, the tour broke all attendance records of any previous traveling Broadway production.

Lewis recently received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the 81st Academy Awards. Star and director of many hit films, Nobel Peace Prize nominee, French Legion of Honor inductee, recording artist, composer, professor, maestro, inventor of the video assist, and author of The Total Filmmaker, and Dean and Me, Jerry Lewis is an American Icon and an International treasure.
