Description by OLDIES.com:
Comedian, actor, film producer, writer and director Jerry Lewis is best known for his own particular brand of slapstick humor. "The Jerry Lewis Show" was an ABC variety series that aired from September to December 1963.
This particularly packed episode, aired soon after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, features Lewis with a whole host of guests: Sam Cooke performs a classic rendition of "Twistin' The Night Away" and there's vintage footage of Cassius Clay reading poetry and special appearances by The Marquis Chimps, Patrice Munsel and Phil Foster.
Jerry Lewis hosts this classic, jam-packed episode of his own 1963 variety show. Aired just after John F. Kennedy's assassination, the proceedings include visits from Phil Foster, Patrice Munsel, The Marquis Chimps, soul singer-songwriter Sam Cooke, and a bit featuring a Cassius Clay poetry reading. For fans of vintage television, this program is a must-see.
