Laughter is the best medicine. It has been proven even by medical staff that laughter has healing properties. Laughing releases stress and stress is the major cause of most diseases. Many men and women throughout history have made it their business to make people. In fact, for many of them, it became a lifelong commitment. Those who have that gift to be able to make people laugh should be paid as much as physicians receive to help people heal. It could mean the difference between life and death for many who allow themselves to laugh even if the jokes are not that funny.

Jerry Lewis was one of these comedians. Born in 1926, he became one of the funniest men alive. As quirky as he portrayed himself, people loved him as well as his sense of humor. He had a way of causing people to laugh until their bellies ached. Besides his sense of humor, he had a heart of compassion for those who were affected by diseases in the Muscular Dystrophy Association. He spent a lot of time and effort on raising money for this worthy cause. Together he and Dean Martin teamed up not only stand-up comedy but in many movies together as well in the comedy genre.
