Quotes from the news wire:
It's just an amazing opportunity. With Jerry Lewis the man's history speaks for itself. What Jerry Lewis was able to do with Jerry Lewis telethon and the money Jerry Lewis was able to raise, it was unbelievable, the numbers are astronomical, to have the opportunity to revive it, change it and still, of course, fulfill the cause at hand as well as bring some awareness to other things that are going on, I just felt it was a great moment.
It's a bonus for me because it's different than anything I've done at this point in my career, kids are your future and some kids are put in positions that others aren't and given things that they have no control over... if you have the opportunity to be a reason of hope or a reason of happiness for a child and that child's family, that's a big deal. That's a big deal, changing a kid's narrative.
Laughter, I feel, heals all wounds and during that moment when you laugh. Regardless of what you're going through in life, it's forgotten. Whether it's five seconds, 10 seconds, 2 minutes, 5 minutes, laughing is powerful. So being able to provide that and do it all over the globe, is a significant blessing and one that I do not take for granted.
