This is a clip from the movie, "The Bellboy" from 1960. Although he portrays the title character, Lewis doesn't speak one word throughout the entire film. ALL of his humor is displayed physically. I think it's just brilliant.
This clip is Lewis "conducting" an empty orchestra. Notice there are no other actors present, and that he has absolutely NOTHING to work off, except a bunch of chairs, a baton, and his own amazing wit. Jerry Lewis' style has often been referred to as silly and elementary, but I can assure you that bits like this take a tremendous amount of concentration, rehearsal, and supreme talent. I think it's fantastic, hope you agree!
