Jerry Lewis (born Joseph Levitch; March 16, 1926 – August 20, 2017) was an American comedian, actor, singer, filmmaker and humanitarian, who in 1946, teamed up with Dean Martin to form Martin and Lewis, before going as a "solo" stage act, movie star and singer in 1956. Lewis was an early and prominent user of video assist, which allows real-time review of how a scene looks on camera.
Lewis performed in concert stages, nightclubs, casinos, theaters, music recordings, radio and starred in 118 film and television productions throughout his career. While nicknamed as "The King of Comedy" in the U.S., Lewis was also known as "Le Roi du Crazy" in France.
