September 10, 2002

LONDON (AP) - Comedian Jerry Lewis was resting comfortably Monday after collapsing backstage at a charity show, the event's producers said.

Stephen Allen Green, master of ceremonies and producer at the High on Laughter benefit Sunday at the Palladium theater, announced to the audience that Lewis, 76, would not be able to participate because he was unwell.

News reports said Lewis was treated in an ambulance behind the theater and then driven to an unidentified hospital. But Green and Lewis' wife said he had not been hospitalized.
