Jerry Lewis Disses an Imitator This is one of the most awkward showbiz clips you'll ever see: From a 1994 show in Brooklyn, Jerry Lewis allows an audience member to come onstage to do a Jerry Lewis imitation. Less than two seconds into the interloper's act, Jerry snaps and gives the guy the boot. I'm torn: Who looks worse here? Is it the intruder or Jerry?

Its really hard to tell from the clip. If anything Jerry probably thought this would go no further; which would be true if it were even 10 years earlier. Technology changes and he didn't. Nothing wrong with that. I read the other day he got in trouble making fun of someone being gay, like he got in trouble two years ago on his telethon. In Jerry's day the press wasn't PC and find yourself in the headlines day after day after a slip up.

I think both parties are at fault here. Jerry was reckless in allowing this guy on the stage in the first place. The guy was wrong for attempting to poke fun of the song Jerry sings at the end of his telethons. The lesson here for performers is don't let interlopers into your act!

I think he should have been a big enough man to let the kid sing, then let the audience handle it. If it had been distaseful, they would have let him know about it and it would have been done. But that's just my opinion.
