I have great memories watching comedic heroes Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin, with my father as I grew up. Lewis, like Lucille Ball brought years of laughter as two of my top funniest comedians.
I spent hours watching so much comedic originality Cinderfella, The Errand Boy, The Bellboy, Disorderly Orderly, and The Nutty Professor, over and over again.
Today you will see glimmers of those giants in the physical comedy in today’s greats like Jim Carey (sorry Jim, even though you ARE funny and do well with comedy movies, to me, you will always be standing on the shoulders of Lewis).
Here’s to you, Mr. Martin and Mr. Lewis!
I plan to draw quite a collection of past-time celebrities, so please keep checking back.
