  • Jerry Lewis talks Nutty Professor, makes faces with Jimmy Fallon (Video)

    In what was a great convergence of the old guard and the new, Jimmy Fallon hosted comedy legend Jerry Lewis on The Tonight Show. Lewis stopped by to promote the 50th anniversary Blu-ray release of arguably his most memorable film, The Nutty Professor. At 88, Lewis kept up with Fallon with vintage quips and gave insight to a famous scene from The Errand Boy before recreating it with Fallon in a silly musical conversation.

  • Joan Rivers biography slated for 2016 as investigation into her death continues

    As the investigation into the death of Joan Rivers continues, more positive news has surfaced— a biography about the trailblazing comedian will be written and has been slated for a 2016 release. Titled Joan Rivers: A Life, the tome will be written for Little, Brown and Company by Leslie Bennetts, a veteran journalist for the New York Times and Vanity Fair. "Joan Rivers' life story was, in every way, a remarkably dramatic roller-coaster ride characterized by triumphant highs and devastating lows, one that is both wildly entertaining and deeply moving," Bennetts said. "But Rivers' career was also enormously significant in American cultural history, breaking down barriers for women in television and comedy and continually redefining the acceptable boundaries of truth-telling for women in public life. It's hard to imagine a more compelling subject for a book — or one that would be more fun."
