Apparently Jerry Lewis existing is enough to elicit laughter? I call it the Full House effect.
Also, while I definitely see the influence on Jim Carry, Carry had much more charisma and his physical comedy had better form and technical complexity.
With Lewis, I just want to punch him.
But you've got to admit, for better or worse Carrey was more or less doing a straight Jerry Lewis impression in Dumb and Dumber.
True, but even in that he had more charisma.
It's just that intangible something that separates the annoying from the entertaining.
That said, Jim Carry the person is fucking insane and seems like an even bigger asshole than Jerry Lewis was in his post-career years.
