For all his accomplishments as an entertainer, Jerry Lewis, who died Sunday at the age of 91, is best known to many Americans as the host of his eponymous Labor Day telethon to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. His entertainment career began as a 5-year-old singing "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime" in resorts in NY state's "Borscht Belt" resorts.
In 2012, Lewis missed an awards ceremony thrown by his beloved Friars Club because his blood sugar dropped from lack of food and he had to spend the night in the hospital.
He was forced to cancel a fund-raising show in Australia due to poor health in June 2011.
Outside of the huge successes, though, his filmmaking career had more than its share of stumbles, possibly due to offscreen issues like his prickly impatience and his struggles with-as Variety puts it-"numerous illnesses and a prescription drug dependency". He reportedly had at least two heart attacks.
He was born in Newark, New Jersey, as Jerome Levitch on March 16, 1926.

Spain could overtake Greece in Migrants in flow

The comedian is said to have started his career in his teens, in movies, television, stage, and radio.
The reunion of Martin and Lewis made global headlines, but Martin downplayed it to his daughter, Deanna, telling her "it was OK".
Jerry became a double act with singer Dean Martin, though their partnership ended in July 1956.
Lewis became a major comedy star with his first solo film, 1957's "The Delicate Delinquent", followed by "Rock-A-Bye Baby" and "The Geisha Boy".
"Jerry was a pioneer in comedy and film".
