It is Labor Day weekend and that means that in a few hours from now, the annual Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon will begin. For those who may not be familiar with the telethon, here is some history:

The Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon is hosted by Jerry Lewis for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. It has been held annually since 1966.
It is always held on Labor Day weekend, starting on the Sunday evening preceding Labor Day and continuing for 22 hours until late Monday afternoon, syndicated to 190 television stations throughout the United States and Canada. MDA calls its network of participating stations The Love Network.

To read more of the history of the telethon, read the following article: MDA Telehon

Many know Jerry Lewis because of the telethon, but he also starred in some very funny movies. In honour of the telethon, I thought I would post some links to video clips and trailers from some of his movies. I hope everyone enjoys the following links:
