Jerry Lewis (born Joseph Levitch; March 16, 1926– August 20, 2017) was an American comedian, actor, singer, filmmaker, and humanitarian, dubbed “The King of Comedy” and “The Total Filmmaker”. He gained his career breakthrough with singer Dean Martin, becoming Martin & Lewis in 1946 and would perform together for ten years until their acrimonious breakup in 1956. Lewis then pursued a solo career. He starred in theatrical movies, worked behind-the-scenes as director, producer and screenwriter, appeared in numerous television programs, performed comedy routines on stage, and released many albums as a singer. He raised awareness for muscular dystrophy during his fifty-five years with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, most notably through his annual Labor Day telethon.
