LOS ANGELES (AP) — A publicist for Jerry Lewis says the comedian is OK after being hospitalized in New York overnight.

The 86-year-old Lewis had a health scare Tuesday night just before he was scheduled to receive an award and present another to Tom Cruise at the Friars Club Entertainment Icon Awards.

Publicist Candi Cazau in Las Vegas says colleagues have told her Lewis is fine. She says he is very busy and simply forgot to eat or drink and his blood sugar level took a dive.

She says she doesn't know if he collapsed, but he became weak and was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Besides the Friars event, Cazau says Lewis is beginning three weeks of directing rehearsals for a new musical based on Lewis' 1963 film "The Nutty Professor."
