  1. I never found Jerry Lewis to be that funny anyhow… he’s a comedy dinosaur as far as I’m concerned. I’m fine with him raising money for good causes, just as long as I don’t have to listen to his act.

  2. This would appear to be a case of man hitting his own stumps. And if he understands that analogy, I will be very surprised.

    He’s an idiot and probably is voting for McCain/Palin who represent the party of hate that reflecs his views on LGBT people.

  4. The entire Cricket playing world should be as offended by such a comment as I am being a gay man. Lewis is 82. Soon the world will be rid of his brainless antics. Wouldn’t it be far more beneficial for Lewis to host an annual telethon for the terminally stupid with him as the poster person?

  5. I imagine that the cricket playing world is above responding to comments insulting their game, especially ones from an elderly gentleman who seems to be no longer amusing let alone funny.

  6. Th’s so-called “comedian” is nothing but a homophobic, bigoted dinosaur.

  7. Mr. Lewis is a remnant good-ol’-boy Abrahamic biggot who has ideas of what masculinity must be and feminity must be and which are fixated in the 40′s and 50′s. I thought him funny when I was 8, but then I matured. His only significance today is his annual telethon for MDA.

  8. “Comedian Jerry Lewis…” COMEDIAN????? Aye! Right!!

  9. Anyone who appreciates comedy, would see how much of an influence Jerry has had on the world of comedy – If anyone has bothered to see Jerry and he work live on stage you will know his style is slapstick and as much as he makes fun of other people, he equally makes fun of himself

    – God only knows what else was said in that interview – us the public only hear the the “bad” or the “offensive” –

    I think the world of today needs to step back and have a laugh at life (and ourselves) for once in awhile instead of taking it so serious – becuase at the end of the day, it was just a JOKE…….
