    Age 91. You have to be an oldtimer to appreciate the whacky slapstick days of the Nutty Professor or Martin & Lewis, which goes way back. It's amazing he lasted this long.

    Lewis raised millions for muscular dystrophy research and treatment through his Labor Day telethon. A good man and a comedic ground breaker.

    Martin & Lewis are timeless. The world lost a great comedian & philanthropist.

    He was funny. Red Skelton funny. Physical comedy like Lucy funny. 91 means he outlived most of his critics and more than a few of his fans.
    Great man.
