US comedian Jerry Lewis dies aged 91
Jerry Lewis, the rubber-faced comedian who starred in many hit movies, has died.
Lewis died on Sunday morning of natural causes, aged 91, in Las Vegas, with his family by his side, publicist Candi Cazau said.
Lewis first became a star in a duo with Dean Martin, entertaining audiences in nightclubs, on television and in the movies.
After their split in 1956, he starred in and directed a number of hit films such as The Nutty Professor.
Later generations knew him primarily as the conductor of weekend telethons to raise funds for victims of muscular dystrophy.
Lewis retired from making movies in 1995, but returned as star of the 2016 drama Max Rose.
