Lewis & Griffin
August 20, 2017  | By Eric Gould  | 1 comment
 
Comedian Jerry Lewis passed away today, Sunday, August 20, at his home in Las Vegas. He was 91. Lewis, a brilliant slapstick writer and performer, was equally notorious for his difficult reputation. The Washington Post perhaps put it best, saying “Mr. Lewis could be candid and coy, insightful and insulting in the same sentence. He was tireless, demanding and insecure – in his own words ‘a neurotic, temperamental imbecile.’” Lewis’ influence was far and wide, including in this 2010 Family Guy tribute to his Count Basie “Blues in Hoss' Flat” bit from his 1961 comedy, The Errand Boy. A side-by-side comparison here shows Seth MacFarlane’s animators getting every loving detail of Lewis’ performance.

Sorry,not a Jerry lover given his awful personal choices from the divorce to the failed project The Day the Clown Cried and the wasted ABC TV series on Saturday nights in the 1960s. The MDA telethon split is also a low moment of his monster ego despite all the good done for so long in fundraising for research. He was an old man for way too long and even that final film,Max Rose,was a mistake. Yes,the funny films will endure and he will always be respected for the video assist technical innovation. And France still likes him. But,he made huge mistakes and we early fans from childhood,turned away in disgust.
