They WERE funny after all!
20 September 2002 | by jcoonsSee all my reviews

I'm not a great big Martin & Lewis fan, but I found out from this video that they were much funnier on TV and stage than in their films. They had a much looser, "play-with-the-audience" style that didn't translate to their movies. This video is a documentary with Martin Short interviewing Jerry Lewis and showing (almost exclusively) video clips from "The Colgate Comedy Hour" of the early to mid '50s. There are also rare clips from their night club act, and the final chapter (there are three) deals with Jerry Lewis after the team broke up. Lots of laughs, and interesting history of the team. Martin Short was pretty funny too. Good video! Maybe I'll become a Martin & Lewis fan after all...
