    Every Labor Day I would watch at least part of the telethon. Age and health have really taken a toll on Jerry now. Say what you want about his comedy but he has done a lot of good over the years.

    Your title should read Jerry Lewis, so that it matches the article.

    He's still doing the telethon?!? I thought his health had been failing, like ten years ago or something.

    Good for him for continuing on when he did, and good for him for hanging it up now. I never cared for his style of comedy, but I'm sure the telethon has been great for raising money and increasing awareness of a serious ailment.
