LOS ANGELES — Labor Day weekend used to belong to Jerry Lewis and his madcap 21-hour Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day Telethon.
Lewis hosted the marathon for Muscular Dystrophy from 1966 until his last show as host in 2010.
With his film return Max Rose opening in one theater this weekend (before expanding nationwide), Lewis, 90, is working Labor Day once again. But the legendary performer insists he doesn't miss the weekend telethon ritual for which he has become associated.
