Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis - Funny Guys
I love these guys. This has to be my favourite skit of theres that they ever did!
The other guy is (if you didn't know) Mr Burt Lancaster!
I blame my Dad for my obsession with their TV show and their movies! Just classic laughs!
My favourite movie of theirs has got be Living It Up followed closely by Artists & Models.
My favourite song which they both performed together is "Every Street's A Boulevard" (from Living It Up):
I bought Jerry's book "Dean & Me: A Love Story" a few years ago, and it is a truly beautiful book of friendship and showbiz!
Unfortunately, Dean passed away almost 20 years ago now, but we still have Jerry around with us to make us laugh - 85 years old!
I am saddened to hear that Jerry was not given a proper farewell when leaving the MDA Telethon last year. This year would have been excellent had he gotten a proper farewell - after all, the man started the charity and made it what it is today more than 50 years ago!
Part of the very first MDA Telethon in 1953!
Jerry's Last MDA hosting-gig last year:
Jerry recieved an Honorary Oscar for his charity work in 2009, which was lovely.
The man needs an ACTUAL Oscar though! What both and he and Dean did for comedy in the 50s and also what he did solo in the 60s was revolutionary!
Such a great team. They don't make acts like them anymore!
