Jerry Lewis

Fortunately, it's nothing too serious.

After pulling out of a charity show last Friday due to hospitalization for fatigue, comedian Jerry Lewis has been forced to cancel a few more gigs this week.

Docters have ordered the overworked and exhausted star to rest in hopes of recuperating for a show on Thursday in front of 1,300 fans in Melbourne, Australia that will raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation.

David Jack, CEO of the foundation, commented on Jerry's health, saying:

"When Jerry lands he goes at it 110 per cent… Understandably, Jerry's health is our primary concern throughout this period and we want to ensure he's able to travel home healthy… That's very sad for Jerry because he's so passionate and committed to Muscular Dystrophy."

Jerry may be tired, but he hasn't completely exhausted his funny bones, as Jack added:

"He wanted me to give a very important message just to quash any rumours: 'I'm not pregnant'."

LOLz!

Feel better, Jerry! We hope you're able to perform Thursday to raise money for such a good cause.
