Comedian-actor Jerry Lewis had a long career that spanned 70 years, and during that time, he made millions of people laugh with his stage, screen and television antics.

He also worked very hard for the fight against muscular dystrophy, hosting the annual Labor Day telethon on ABC for decades.

His gregarious and lovable personality were his trademarks throughout his long and distinguished career, including his partnership with fellow comedian and actor Dean Martin, though that friendship went on hiatus for 20 years.

The entertainment industry has lost yet another talented and respected individual. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and colleagues in the entertainment industry.

Rest in peace, Jerry!
