Jerry Lewis

Jerry Lewis (born Joseph Levitch, March 16, 1926) is an American comedian, actor, film producer, writer, film director and singer. He is best known for his slapstick humor in stage, radio, screen, recording and television. He was originally paired up with Dean Martin in 1946, forming the comedy team of Martin and Lewis. In addition to the team's popular nightclub work, they starred in a successful series of comedy films for Paramount Pictures. As an innovative filmmaker, Lewis is credited with inventing the video assist system in cinematography. Lewis is also known for his charity fund-raising telethons and position as national chairman for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

In "Brian Sings and Swings", he is "the Jew" that replaces Brian Griffin for Frank Sinatra, Jr.'s nightly performances at the Quahog Cabana Club.

Quagmire being popular in France in "Bigfat" mimics the popularity of Jerry Lewis.[1] In Quagmire's comedy film he is also dressed reminiscent of Jerry Lewis.

Seth MacFarlane stated that Quagmire's catchphrase "Giggity giggity" stemmed from Steve Marmel's impression of Lewis. [2]
