We lost a television and film icon last week when comedian Jerry Lewis passed away. Known for his impeccable comedic timing and slapstick delivery, Lewis enjoyed an amazing career that spanned six decades and earned him worldwide adoration. He also started and hosted the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon, which raised over $2.5 billion dollars for the Muscular Dystrophy Association over the 44 years he hosted the event.

As an actor, Lewis starred in more than 40 movies, almost all of them comedic roles that won him countless awards and honors. The clip below is from Smorgasbord, one of Jerry’s last great roles. He played a bumbling Sherrif’s deputy just doing his job when things took a turn for the worse, to put it mildly.

The clip opens with Lewis’ character pulling over a motorist, a mountain of a man in an ironically tiny car, for a routine traffic stop. The deputy steps out of the car and begins to pull his glove off, finger by finger, only to realize after going through each finger several times that he’s making no progress, so he yanks the glove back on tightly and heads toward the motorist. He very politely asks the driver for his drivers license, but loses his cool when the driver replies that he doesn’t have his license. Things go downhill, literally, from there. He orders the man out of his car at gunpoint, and…

… well, we aren’t going to spoil the clip for you. Just go ahead and hit the play button below and enjoy this look at one of the all time comedy greats doing what he did best. Lewis passed away last week at the age of ninety-one from heart disease. He leaves a legacy of entertainment and humanitarianism that few could even hope to follow, and will be missed by all who knew him.
