    He had a long and very successful life, leaving behind a great legacy.

    Jerry Lewis wasn’t high on my list of funnymen, but I thought he and Dean Martin made a pretty fair team….and, of course, the almost 50 years-run of his annual telethon for Muscular Dystrophy is a legacy that supersedes any opinion of his comedic talents.

    I wasn’t a fan – I just never found him amusing. x

    I’m with you there, mistermuse. The annual telethon must be the legacy to go for.

    I didn’t enjoy his silly-faces, or slapstick. But I liked him when he was acting in more serious roles. He was perfect with De Niro, in ‘The King of Comedy’. That’s a very under-appreciated film, full of pathos and dramatic undercurrents.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    I’ve never managed to watch The King of Comedy all the way through!

    Oh well. Different stokes, for different folks. Never an issue. x

The Stuff They Won't Include in Any Tourist Guide: The Real England

The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
