Jerry Lewis Live In Las Vegas, 1984

I was given a beat up copy of "Jerry Lewis LIVE!" on VHS years and years ago, and I have to say that it was really damn entertaining. Here's a clip from that performance. Jerry delivers what has become my second favorite quickie joke of all-time at the 4:05 mark. Watching his act, you get the impression that Jerry is willing to do absolutely anything--ANYTHING!--to entertain these people. Is he willing to sing? Yes. Tell jokes? Absolutely. Dance? Of course. Physical tomfoolery? Just say the word. Cut his wrists? Sure. Crush a puppy with a kettle drum? Hey, whatever it takes.
