Comedian Jerry Lewis Remains in Las Vegas Hospital

91-year-old was checked into medical facility on Friday

Comedian Jerry Lewis remains in a Las Vegas hospital after being checked in on Friday for an infection.

According to the Associated Press, the 91-year-old was taken to a Las Vegas hospital last week and treated with antibiotics for a urinary tract infection.

Lewis’ publicist Candi Cazau told the AP that the comedian is “is doing fine and is expected to be released shortly.” He is scheduled to travel to Toronto for a movie shoot later this week.

In a statement to KSNV on Saturday, Cazau said the hospitalization was “just a precaution because of his age,” adding that “His health is not in danger at all.” The Las Vegas NBC affiliate also reported that Lewis was briefly on a respirator to assist breathing, which was removed Sunday.

Lewis was previously hospitalized overnight in 2012 after forgetting to eat or drink for a day. In 2011, he was hospitalized for a few hours due to exhaustion and forced to cancel a performance in Sydney, Australia.
