Jerry Lewis's About

[]

Jerry Lewis is more than simply a hilarious man: he's also an outstanding actor, film producer, and screenwriter. He rose to popularity as one of the immensely successful pair 'Martin and Lewis' during the 1950s. He was introduced to the world of show business at the age of five, as the son of professional entertainers. He had devised his own comic performance, Record Act, an exaggerated mime of popular songs, by the time he was in his teens. He met Dean Martin, a nightclub singer with whom he established Martin and Lewis, a comedic duo. Before moving on to radio, films, and television, the duo performed in nightclubs. The duo rose to fame when they participated in a series of comedy films, known for their slapstick humour and exaggerated physical antics. Despite functioning as a team, each member carved out his own specialty, allowing them to pursue successful solo careers once the trio disbanded. Jerry made his first film without Martin, The Delicate Delinquent, which went on to become a major smash and established him as a single performer. The actor went on to direct and produce films, receiving the Best Director of the Year award in Europe eight times.
