Jerry Lewis in Person Reviews
I recommend this book to anyone considering a career in comedy or entertainment in general. The insight and the sheer amount of experience Jerry has are invaluable.Also, I laughed out loud a couple times.
It all started with Dean Martin... this book, in a way, and my fascination with Martin and Lewis, Jerry Lewis and now Dean Martin. Along the way I became curious about Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Marilyn Monroe and The Les Brown Orchestra, Count Basie and other big bands.But prior to this book, I had read "Dean and Me, a Love Story", by Jerry Lewis and James Kaplan, which made me very curious about Dean and Jerry. But, much of what is in that book is also covered by "Jerry Lewis in Person." If I were to choose between these two books, I'd say read Dean and Me. I read it and cried at the end even though you know what's coming.This book covered their career, Jerry's early life, born to a pair of show biz vaudevillian parents who left him with his grandmother or other relatives much of the time while they traveled the Borscht circuit. This led to a lifelong anxiety about being alone, and left behind. An interesting look at the comedian, what makes him tick, what made them so great together. He also professes his love for Dean Martin in both these books, and it feels real.
