Jerry Lewis - Jerry Lewis Scraps More Shows

Veteran comedian Jerry Lewis has cancelled the Sydney leg of his Australian charity tour as he recovers following his hospitalisation for exhaustion.
The comedian/actor planned the shows to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation, of which he is a patron, but pulled out of a charity gig on Friday (24Jun11) after falling sick. He checked into a local medical facility, where doctors concluded he was fatigued and overworked and ordered him to rest.
Lewis has now scrapped a number of upcoming appearances, including turns at a dinner gala and a luncheon, so he can rest up before flying to Melbourne on Wednesday (29Jun11). The veteran star is due to perform for 1,300 fans in the city on Thursday (30Jun11), but his appearance depends on his health, according to Muscular Dystrophy Foundation Australia boss David Jack.
Jack tells the Aap, "When Jerry lands he goes at it 110 per cent... Understandably, Jerry's health is our primary concern throughout this period and we want to ensure he's able to travel home healthy... That's very sad for Jerry because he's so passionate and committed to Muscular Dystrophy...
"He wanted me to give a very important message just to quash any rumours: 'I'm not pregnant'."
