Bill Cosby vs. Jerry Lewis
31 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this show on its original air date, 19 October 1982. I was hypnotized by the disinterest Bill Cosby showed to Jerry Lewis. Jerry was pulling out all the stops, including his trademark physical shtick, but Cosby never cracked a smile. In fact it seemed to me that there was an underlying hostility emanating from the veteran Cosby towards the legendary Lewis. I am a fan of both these comedians. As a kid my family always watched Cosby's TV shows, starting with "I Spy", and "The Bill Cosby Show" (in which he played a bachelor gym teacher). My dad had a collection of Cosby comedy albums. As for Jerry Lewis, I remember watching & loving his comedy movies on TV while growing up, like "The Delicate Delinquent", "Cinderfella", and "The Nutty Professor" (featuring his Buddy Love role). So I've always been haunted by the question, since the day I saw these two stellar funny-men on the Tonight Show (with Cosby guest-hosting), why Bill Cosby seemed like he would not give Jerry Lewis the time of day?
