METHOD TO THE MADNESS OF JERRY LEWIS takes a contemporary look at a true living legend through in-depth and candid interviews with Jerry Lewis, never-before-seen film footage and contributions from some of Hollywood’s biggest names: Alec Baldwin, Chevy Chase, Eddie Murphy, Carl Reiner, Quentin Tarantino and more. Director/producer Gregg Barson explores the superstar comedian from a fresh perspective. Barson is the only filmmaker to be granted unlimited behind-the-scenes access to Jerry Lewis, resulting in unfiltered reflection on an 80-year career in show business. Plus, travel the world with the evervibrant and charismatic man himself as he continues his comedic reign at the ripe, young age of 85.

“If you don’t get Jerry Lewis, you don’t really understand comedy, because he is the essence of it. He is the diamond.” (Jerry Seinfeld)
