It's not Jerry's Fault
13 January 2017 | by utubesSee all my reviews

When you watch this series, you'll notice that it doesn't seem like the Jerry you remember from the Colgate comedy hour or from his movies. The issue was that in 1965 Jerry Lewis fell off a stage while he was performing and cracked a vertebrae in his back. After that incident, he was in excruciating pain for decades. He had to take pain killers for years. His performances from that point on on were affected. Jerry Lewis was one of the hardest working and best physical comedians of all time, and it's a shame that this happened to him. A lot of his genius was stifled due to the medications he had to endure to relieve his pain. So when you watch these episodes, keep in mind that Jerry is actually in pain while making them so please cut him some slack.
