Episode 335: The Bellboy (1960)

Special Guests: Shawn Levy
Guest Co-Hosts: Craig Bierko, Peter Flynn

The 1960 directorial debut from Jerry Lewis, The Bellboy, also stars in the titular role. He's Stanley, a put upon hotel worker at the Fountainbleu hotel in Miami. The film doesn’t necessarily have a three act plot per se but is more an opportunity for a string of gags.

Filmmaker Peter Flynn and actor Craig Bierko join Mike to discuss The Bellboy as well as many other aspects of Lewis's career. Special guest Shawn Levy is the author of King of Comedy: The Life and Art of Jerry Lewis.

Please note that Craig Bierko is an ardent supporter of Loma Linda University Children's Hospital (LLUCH), pioneers of the first infant heart transplant. Please help LLUCH keep its pledge to never turn away any child in need by texting KIDS at 27722 and donating $10 instantly from your phone bill.
