Jerry Lewis Recovering After Being Hospitalized
Legendary comedian Jerry Lewis was rushed to hospital, after collapsing moments before he was to take the stage at a star-studded Friars Club event last night in New York. However, the 86-year-old’s publicist, Candi Cazau told the Associated Press, that today Lewis is fine, explaining he was “very busy and simply forgot to eat or drink and his blood sugar level took a dive.”

Lewis had been at the event emceed by Alec Baldwin, to receive the Applause Award, and likewise, present Tom Cruise with Friars Club Entertainment Icon Award. The prestigious aforementioned award has been only bestowed three previous times to Douglas Fairbanks, Cary Grant and Frank Sinatra, respectively.

"I am sorry Jerry couldn't be here tonight, but I know he is going to be fine," Cruise said after accepting the Icon Award.

"Jerry Lewis was so sorry to miss the Icon Award presentation to Tom Cruise last night, but is feeling much better today, and is back at his hotel and thanks everyone for their good wishes," a Friars Club rep said in a statement on Wednesday.

Lewis has suffered from a myriad of problems in recent years, including Type 1 diabetes, prostate cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, and heart disease.
