#Quote
1 Everywhere I go in America, when they learn I'm from France, the first thing they ask me is if I'm a huge Jerry Lewis fan. I've never been able to figure that out. Maybe it's because of his body movements. It's just so weird. Maybe it's because of the theatrical comedy tradition in France. But it just makes no sense to me... I remember someone asked Jerry why he never does political material. He said that was funny, because no one ever asks those guys who do political stuff why they never do neurotic observational material. That's a good point.
