Jerry Lewis (born March 16, 1926; died August 20, 2017) was an American comedian, actor, film producer, writer, film director, singer and humanitarian. He was best known for his slapstick humor on stage, screen, television, radio and recording, his singing ability in a string of music albums and his charity fund-raising telethons for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
When Marty McFly told Emmett Brown in 1955 that the President of the United States in 1985 would be Ronald Reagan, he scoffed at the idea that a famous actor would hold such a high-ranking government office, and sarcastically asked whether the vice president was Jerry Lewis.
