Joseph Levitch (March 16, 1926 – August 20, 2017), better known by his stage name Jerry Lewis, was an American comedian, actor, singer, filmmaker and humanitarian, dubbed as "The King of Comedy" and "The Total Filmmaker". He gained his career breakthrough with singer Dean Martin, billed as Martin & Lewis, in 1946 and would perform together for ten years until an acrimonious breakup in 1956.
Lewis then pursued a solo career, starring in several theatrical movies, worked behind-the-scenes as director, producer and screenwriter, performed comedy routines on stage, released albums as a singer, selling millions of records and raised awareness for muscular dystrophy, while as national chairman of the Muscular Dystrophy Association, most notably the telethons he hosted, raising $2.6 billion for the cause.
