Comedy just lost another legend. It was confirmed on Sunday afternoon by John Katsilometes of the Las Vegas Review-Journal that legendary comedian Jerry Lewis died Sunday morning at the age of 91. Lewis' publicist has also since confirmed the news to Bustle. According Katsilometes and Lewis' agent, the actor and director died of natural causes in his own home around 9:15 a.m. PST. There are plenty of Jerry Lewis quotes that show why he has been the master of comedy and insight for all these years.
Lewis dominated Hollywood in the 1950s as one of the boldest faces in comedy at the time, appearing in several big box office hits alongside Dean Martin. And he stayed pretty busy throughout his entire career. In 2016 he starred in Max Rose, a film about a musician who learns that his late wife may have cheated on him early on in their marriage. News of his death is definitely a shocking and hard pill to swallow, to say the least. The comedian was well known for his onstage persona but, offstage, he also dropped a few gems from time to time that can pretty much be considered relatable to anyone, Hollywood or not.
