Taped in the Showroom at the Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas in November 2012, AN EVENING WITH JERRY LEWIS: LIVE FROM LAS VEGAS presents the legendary performer live on stage, telling stories of his eight-decade career through narrative and musical performances, with video montages from his television and film appearances – including rare, never-before-seen clips from his personal and private vaults. 

During the course of the program, Lewis tells jokes and reminisces about his life, from his earliest days working with his father, a vaudeville entertainer who taught him song, dance and pantomime skills, to his first solo gig “Record Act,” in which he exaggeratedly mimed the lyrics to songs on a phonograph. But everything changed when he met a young crooner named Dean Martin in Atlantic City and together they became the most popular comedy duo in entertainment history.
