SKY MOVIES PAYS TRIBUTE TO FILM AND COMEDY PIONEER JERRY LEWIS WITH SPECIAL POP-UP CHANNEL

Following the passing of Jerry Lewis, SKY Movies remembers the late comedic legend with a special tribute pop-up channel. Featuring two of his most notable films, The Nutty Professor and The Bellboy, the Jerry Lewis pop-up is available from 8.30pm tonight on SKY channel 035.

Jerry Lewis first rose to fame with his popular comedy and music duo act with crooner Dean Martin, before going on to build a successful solo career writing, producing and directing many of his own films, including The Nutty Professor and The Bellboy.

Most well-known for his slapstick humour in film, television, radio and Broadway, Lewis was also a devoted humanitarian, dedicating much of his time to raising money and awareness for Muscular Dystrophy.

“He’s universally recognised as one of the most influential comedians of all time; he’s a cinematic icon in France where he’s been lauded for decades; and the celebration of his career continues to permeate the international entertainment press from the moment his passing was announced. At SKY Movies we simply want to acknowledge his talent with his two most iconic films on a timely Pop-Up – namely The Nutty Professor and The Bellboy,” says SKY’s Director of Entertainment, Travis Dunbar.

Jerry Lewis - a comedian, film maker, actor and humanitarian whose innovation helped shape American entertainment in the 20th Century. Join us on SKY channel 035 as we pay tribute to a comedic icon with The Nutty Professor and The Bellboy.

The SM Jerry Lewis pop-up channel (SKY channel 035) is available from Tuesday 22 August, 8.30pm to Wednesday 23 August, 10.45pm to SKY Domestic customers with the SKY Movies package.
