Martin & Jerry
August 22, 2017  | By Eric Gould
 
Our tribute to Jerry Lewis continues with this Martin Short homage to Lewis from his old SCTV days (1982-3). Short quickly proved himself a brilliant comic and impressionist, playing Lewis as surreally appearing in atypical film roles – once as the Robert Duvall character in Tender Mercies and in this one, an Ingmar Bergman send-up entitled “Scenes From an Idiots Marriage.” Short told Howard Stern that his Lewis impression was like a Al Hirschfeld caricature — exaggerations of the silly voices, the ubiquitous throat lozenges, the botching of names – as his way of honoring the icon that had influenced him so. Only low res copies are available on YouTube.
