Another comedic icon, Jerry Lewis, has left us.
Lewis’ death was confirmed in a tweet by the Las Vegas Review Journal:
Jerry Lewis was not only a legendary comedian but an actor, singer, director and philanthropist. The world knew him and loved him. Celebrities are starting to tweet their love and grief over losing one of the last great comedians of an era gone.
Penn Jillette just tweeted:
I remember him from the old movies with him and Dean Martin and of course, his loved MDA Telethon.
Thank you for the decades of entertainment and selfless love you gave to others. You will be missed. ~grace
