Men Lie! (new geo Blog for the week of Sept 25/17)

Upon hearing that comedian Jerry Lewis had died, it got me thinking about a couple of odd things that I’d heard about him. Who knows what happened with the telethon, but I did hear that the reason he and Dean Martin had broken up was that in those days the straight man got 60% of the take Jerry wanted the arrangement changed but Dean wouldn’t budge, so that was the end of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. The other thing I did hear was that after feeling pretty f**ked up for a long time, Jerry finally made an appointment with a psychiatrist. After their first session, the Doctor asked him if there was anything else he could do to earn a living. Jerry explained that he literally had been born in a trunk backstage and show business was all he knew. The Doc went on to explain that he thought he could fix him but he might not be funny anymore. With that, Jerry stood up and walked out.
