Jerry Lewis, the veteran entertainer and the host of the annual Labor Day telethon for MDR (Muscular Dystrophy Research) has announced that he will be retiring as host. Jerry Lewis added that he will make his final appearance on the US show in September.

The 85-year-old Lewis has starred in more than 45 films in a career span of five decades. Besides host, he is a zany comedian and actor too. On a statement posted by the MDA on its website, Jerry Lewis stated that as a labor of love, he has hosted the annual telethon since 1996. He added that he will be making his final appearance on the show this year by performing his signature song, ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.

The veteran, Jerry Lewis has turned the ballad from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical ‘Carousel’ into an anthem for MDA through the performance at the conclusion of each telethon over the years.

One of the spokesmen, Jim Brown said that they needed to change the format of their show and they are creating a new telethon era now. He added that they are very thankful that Jerry Lewis is performing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’. He also stated that Jerry is a world-class humanitarian and no one rivals him in terms of his commitment.
