JAY SHARBUTT:
Television in review

NEW YORK - Jerry Lewis
smiled with exaggerated unease
when asked if he'd like to do
another regular television variety
show. "No," he said slowly. "I
really wouldn't like to do that."
AFTER A MOMENT'S reflec-
tion, he partly overruled him-
self: "If I could go back my
way, sure I would. But you can't
go back your way.
"The network executives would
never let me go my way. They
say it will, but then they stop
you."
What would be the Lewis way?

"VISUAL," the 46-year-old
comedian said. "The medium to
be used for what it is." He said
there would have to be a mini-
mum of spoken material.
"You can get that on a record-
ing," he said. "I call it visual
hi-fi. You watch a variety show,
and it's visual hi-fi. Two guys
sit on a stool had to do 16 min-
utes of jokes.
"You can get the same thing
in a record album and be pro-
ductive at your workbench -
drafting something, building
something - while listening to
the recording. You don't have
to look at it."
Perhaps the most unexpected
thing about him is that he rarely
cracks a joke. He's deadly ser-
ious about life in general and the
need for laughter in particular.
He thinks the latter is slowly dis-
appearing in America.
HE BLAMES the disappearance
partly on grim times in which
our "sense of humor has been
filed down - right to the nerve
end."
He also argues that our abil-
ity to laugh or get excited about
anything has been dulled by the
availability of some 20 hours of
television each day in most parts
of the United Stales.
"We're all pretty uptight. It's
hard to laugh," Lewis said, pro-

posing two remedies that would
make the networks extremely up-
tight.
"THE ONLY WAY we're going
to get the people back to t h a t
vital aspect of our existence -
a sense of humor - is to turn
that damned television set off or
do what they do in France," he
said.
"There, you've only got tele-
vision from noon to four and
then from eight in the evening
until eleven. Then it goes black.
"Do that here and you've got
a resurgence not only of a sense
of humor, but of people caring
for one another, of people com-
municating against with one ano-
ther."
