Comedian/actor Jerry Lewis has cancelled a planned performance in Australia due to poor health.
The star was set to take the stage for a sold-out show with The Muscular Dystrophy Foundation Australia in Sydney on Friday but decided to back out of the appointment due to an illness, according to the Associated Press.

The 85 year old has since been hospitalized for tests but no other details were available at the time WENN went to press.
