Lewis presented his show in three acts.  In Act One (The Early Years), he  told stories about his eight-decade career and showed rare video clips from his private collection.  Act Two (Kings of Comedy) focused on his years with Dean Martin as part of the most successful comedy duo in history.  Act Three (Alone at the Top)  recapped his rise to superstardom and recognition as a global philanthropist.  Lewis took questions from the audience at the end of the performance.

Murray SawChuck, Comedy Magician and star of MURRAY ‘Celebrity Magician’ at The Tropicana, attended the show and commented, “So glad I got to see Jerry Lewis’ show! It was priceless! His timing is as good now at 87 as it was in his 20’s. He looks fabulous and he even made fun of my hair…asking “What happened to your hair? Did you put your finger in a light socket?!”  SawChuck continued, “Jerry Lewis can make fun of me anytime.  If he ever does this show again, don’t miss it! There aren’t many left of his caliber if at all!”
