There are times when us photographers have to get up early in the morning, even before the birds are singing to attend to events about Melbourne, and a 5am wakeup is not unusual, however to see the great legend of comedy “Jerry Lewis” it was easily to make an exception.
Over 800 of Melbourne’s hard-working office professionals in Crown Casino’s Palladium for Crown’s eighth annual charity champagne breakfast, Secbrek. Hollywood legend Jerry Lewis performed along with House of Gaga – The Lady Gaga Experience. This years Secbrek event will raise awareness and funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation Australia. Jerry Lewis has raised over 2.5 billion for the foundation.
During Jerry’s performance he directed audiences to the projection screen to show his true passion and way of living, moments later the stage went dark, this in turn left Jerry walking off the stage. We sympathies with him but only wished he could have made a light hearted joke and “went on with the show” …some of Jerry Lewis greatest workss can be found on Youtube
Further images can be seen in our Crown Casino Charity Champagne Breakfast Gallery
Until the next photographic adventure, thats all for now
