Suzan Lewis is the daughter of Comedy legend Jerry Lewis
-- Suzan Lewis, the 56 year old daughter of entertainer Jerry Lewis, makes her comedy club debut on August 26, 2008 at the Philadelphia comedy club, Helium, at 2031 Sansom Street. Ms. Lewis will entertain with satirical pantomime reminiscent to her father's work before teaming up with Dean Martin. Suzan Lewis will also make a brief statement in support of help for the homeless and disabled.
In the 1950s and 1960s, Suzan's mother, Lynn, and stepfather, Hy Uchitel, owned and operated some of the most elegant entertainment establishments Manhattan. They included the El Morocco night club, and Voisin, a posh French Restaurant. In 1976, Suzan's mother disclosed that Suzan's biological father is Jerry Lewis. Since then Suzan has spent time with him and has been accepted by Lewis family members. Legal documentation is on file, but her uncanny likeness to her father makes their relationship unmistakeable.
In the 1990s, a nearly fatal automobile accident changed Suzan's life, leaving her legally disabled and in constant pain. She was forced to live on disability and Medicare. Although Suzan had a storybook childhood living in five star hotels in New York City and going to the finest schools in Manhattan and Europe, the past few years found the former debutante out of luck, out of money, and homeless. But now Suzan Lewis is on the road to a better life.
Suzan Lewis' brave battle to regain her pride and independence is the subject of an upcoming book. Suzan's live stage and TV appearances will highlight her inherited sense of humor. Her goal will be to entertain, motivate, and inspire those who come to see her.
