They WERE funny after all!

I'm not a great big Martin & Lewis fan, but I found out from this
that they were much funnier on TV and stage than in their films. They
much looser, "play-with-the-audience" style that didn't translate to
This video is a documentary with Martin Short interviewing Jerry Lewis
and showing (almost exclusively) video clips from "The Colgate Comedy
of the early to mid '50s. There are also rare clips from their night
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
