Jerry Lewis - Soft on Nancy O'Dell, Hard on Charo

9/7/2009 1:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

No gay jokes this year -- but last night on the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon, France's favorite comedian announced his inability to "do anything" with Nancy O'Dell's impressive legs ... and then got a lap dance from Charo!

Jerry Lewis: Click to watch
There was more crazy -- Jerry unloaded on his sponsor, saying he couldn't see the big donation board because South Point's "goddamn" sign was in the way.

Good times ... hope you made a donation.

Charo rules. She never sold out and had the guts to be herself. She is a killer classical guitar player, a virtuoso

You are an idiot. Their books are open to see and he has never taken a dime nor has any celebrity taken a dime to appear on the telethon.
This man has worked hard for this charity since the sixties. He is an honorable man who does not need to be besmirched by a pathetic man of your caliber.

Jerry, I can't remember the last time this guy was funny. Some really odd moments after he does his 'jokes'. Would be nice if they had any relevance whatsoever.

Sometimes it's best to just live off your past instead of trying to re-live it, I think.

What a waste of space. This guy has not been funny since he was a teenager. And even then, he was obnoxious. He has done nothing but try and keep that funny time and had made an ass of himself. Now, he insults sponsors using foul language on TV.

Jerry, you are a joke and unfortunately, not a funny one.

I love Jery Lewis and think he is great for all he has done for this charity. That said, he has a large ego and has always been overly serious. Which is why his TV show tanked so quickly.

His comedy has always slapstick and funny noises...other than that he always needed others to be on stage with for laughs. Nothing wrong with that, but for those saying he's "not funny" ...well, he really can't be anymore due to his age.

99% of you don't give a penny to charaties but knock this guy who not only gives it his all (and has for decades) but could be said to give hundreds of thousands by donating his time for free.

Like I said, I love Jery Lewis and when he passes we'll have lost a great treasure to not only the entertainment industry...but to humanity as a whole.

Bless you JL!

These Vegas acts are why people of a certain age cringe whenever we hear "playing Vegas". It's not second rate, it's 5th rate, and old has beens like Jerry, Sammy, Dino. GAG!

SCTV had a great parody of all these phony Vegas losers on "The Sammy Maudlin Show." Spot on about all those phonies.
