Jerry Lewis on female comedians: "I can't see women doing comedy. I think of them as baby machines"

Jerry Lewis was never comediennes’ fan. In 1998 he even told at an Aspen comedy festival that no female comedian is funny.

No he is 87 years-old and he still sustains that the funny woman is not born yet.

Lewis was in Cannes for the premiere of “Max Rose”, a drama directed by Daniel Noah in which Lewis stars as an aging jazz musician. At the Cannes International Film Festival he told the press that his position on comediennes is not changed (not even for Melissa McCarthy or Sarah Silverman). “I don’t have any female favorites. “I can’t see women doing that. It bothers me. I cannot sit and watch a lady diminish her qualities to the lowest common denominator. I just can’t do that.” That statement is very twisted. We don’t know if he’s making a compliment to the ladies or it is an insult.

“A woman doing comedy doesn’t offend me but sets me back a bit. I, as a viewer, have trouble with it. I think of her as a producing machine that brings babies in the world.” Now that’s an insult ladies!

He is multi-talented (actor, comedian, singer, film producer, screenwriter and director) and he is funny but why not give credit to women as well?

From Tina Fey’s point of view, women don’t care if Jerry Lewis doesn’t like them: "Whenever someone says to me, 'Jerry Lewis says women aren't funny,' or 'Christopher Hitchens says women aren't funny,' ... Do you have anything to say to that?' Yes! We don't f***ing care if you like it."
