Was nominated for the Nobel Prize for his telethons that attempted to raise money for medical research and advancement.

He literally has an I.Q. of 145.

His legendary character performance of Buddy Love in the 1963 picture "The Nutty Professor" has been long the talk of speculation as it portrayed Lewis in a total polar opposite contrast of his usual persona--a smooth, attractive hipster. Not unlike his old longtime collaborator Dean Martin. Many said the character was an impersonation of Martin. Some said Buddy Love was the REAL Jerry Lewis. Lewis himself said Buddy Love was a composite of every obnoxious, arrogant, self-important S.O.B. he ever knew who could get away with being so hateful because they were "hip."

He was placed No. 50 on the list of the "50 All-Time Greatest Directors Ever!"

He was elected into the 2008 New Jersey Hall of Fame for his services to Arts and Entertainment and charity.

Lewis always wore tiny lady's sized wristwatches, usually made by Cartier. They are easy to spot in all of his films.

As a young Catskill comic recorded "I Love A Murder Mystery", a speaking novelty record, in the early 1940s.

In 1956, in an attempt to dispel rumors of their impending breakup, Dean Martin and Jerry performed "Side by Side" (We Ain't Got A Barrel of Money) on one of the last of their many appearances on their variety show, NBC-TVs "The Colgate Comedy Hour" (1950)

He once played first base in an exhibition game for 5 innings for the Houston Astros .

His classic character "Julius Kelp" from The Nutty Professor (1963) was cleverly parodied by Joe Piscopo in 1984, on Joe's self-titled HBO TV Special.
