The Jerry Lewis Show with guests Phil Foster, Sam Cooke and Muhammad Ali (1963)

In an interview:

Lewis says that, although he only did 13 weeks of this spectacular flop, he still got the full amount of his 5 year contract: $40 million.

He also says that this fact is a Guiness World Record: Most money paid to a performer for the shortest period of time.

I doubt any of that is true and can find no reference to it at all.

Anyone else know?
