A Kevin and Bean Glossary

Jerry Lewis calls the President of France

Posted in Jerry Lewis, Legal trouble, Ralph by Aaron Burr on March 9, 2007

In March 2003, the show caused international controversy when Ralph made a crank phone call to the office of French president Jacques Chirac while posing as Jerry Lewis. All were surprised when Chirac picked up the phone and began talking to “Jerry”. Lewis’s lawyers were quick to threaten with lawsuits and the bit has rarely been spoken of since. Though they appear to be under orders not to speak of the matter, Kevin and Bean have made oblique suggestions that Lewis “blackmailed” Kevin and Bean into making a contribution to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the beneficiary of Lewis’ annual Labor Day telethon.
