Jerry Lewis Tribute
Hello MPIR Fans & Friends,
With the sad news of the passing of Jerry Lewis this past Sunday, I have placed some of the radio works of Martin & Lewis on the MPIR Comedy stream for your listening enjoyment.
Jerry Lewis (born either Jerome Levitch or Joseph Levitch, depending on the source; March 16, 1926 – August 20, 2017) was an American comedian, actor, singer, producer, director, screenwriter, and humanitarian. He was known for his slapstick humor in film, television, stage and radio. From 1946 to 1956, he and Dean Martin were partners as the hit popular comedy duo of Martin and Lewis. Following that success, he was a solo star in motion pictures, nightclubs, television shows, concerts, album recordings, and musicals.
Lewis served as national chairman of the Muscular Dystrophy Association and hosted the live Labor Day weekend broadcast of the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon for 44 years. He received several awards for lifetime achievement from the American Comedy Awards, Los Angeles Film Critics Association, Venice Film Festival and Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and was honored with two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Mystery stream is now playing episodes from the following series: Lux Radio Theater, Mysterious Traveler, The Adventures of Philip Marlowe, Richard Diamond Private Detective, Suspense, The Line Up, The Whistler and more.
