Re: Richard Pryor tells Jerry Lewis "You're the god of comed

Jerry started working solo in 1943. He's been working steadily for the past 70 years.

The reason he must sit is the pulmonary fibrosis. You never recover from that and if he uses too much energy, he needs oxygen.

Great that he is still performing for audiences, educating them, AND making them laugh.

I have fond memories of seeing Martin-Lewis flicks at the drive in. Martin, so suave and handsome, Jerry, so goofy, and off-the-wall. :)

The Martin-Lewis split was big news, then Dean and the Rat Pack. Guessing those were some lean years for Jerry.

He's done a lot of good with his life. He's another "last man standing."
