Jerry LewisJerry Lewis, American comedian Jerry Lewis has a message for fans concerned after he was forced to cancel the Sydney leg of his tour of Australia: “I’m pregnant.” But jokes aside, the Hollywood veteran is very disappointed that he had to cancel a sold-out show at Rooty Hill RSL on Friday night due to exhaustion, executive director of the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation of Australia, David Jack, told reporters in Sydney.

Lewis arrived in Australia on Monday for a national tour to raise funds for the foundation, which is an international standard.

But the culmination of a long flight from Las Vegas and a busy schedule made him feel “exhausted and unable to perform” the crowd of 700 men in Rooty Hill on Friday, Mr. Jack said.

“When Jerry goes lands at 110 percent,” he said.

The 85-year-old performed in a gala dinner for 250 people in Brisbane on Wednesday night before traveling to Sydney, where he began to feel ill.

On Friday, was treated at his hotel in Sydney by a physician for symptoms such as apathy, low energy consumption.

As a result, the rest of the Sydney leg of his tour has been canceled, including a dinner for 300 people at the Dolton House tonight at Pyrmont and a lunch appearance at Cronulla on Sunday.

Lewis feels much better this afternoon but will continue to rest before flying to Melbourne on Wednesday to be carried out for 1300 people at Docklands on Thursday, Mr. Jack said.

Whether that show goes ahead depends on your condition.

“It is understandable that Jerry’s health is our primary concern throughout this period and want to ensure that it is able to travel home safe,” said Jack.

“That’s very sad for Jerry because he is so passionate and committed to muscular dystrophy.”

Mr. Jack said he had spoken with Lewis today, and the comedian was in good humor.

“I wanted to give an important message just to quell the rumors:” I’m pregnant. ”

But the star was very disappointed to have been forced to cancel the show Rooty Hill, who was just the third cancellation of a lifetime of achievement, Mr. Jack said.

“Jerry wanted to convey a very sincere apology on behalf of the fans,” he said, adding that the star was grateful for the messages of support he received from fans.

“We were overwhelmed by the positive reaction of the people who attended the parade last night – that Jerry gave a standing ovation when he announced he could not go on stage and many have chosen to donate their entry fees to charity Instead of requesting a refund. ”

Lewis has been the national president of the Muscular Dystrophy Association in the U.S. for over 60 years and has grossed over U.S. and 2.6 billion for charity.

He was going to leave Australia next Sunday but will now fly a day earlier, Mr. Jack said.
