Comedy legend Jerry Lewis has made a poor young interviewer squirm in his seat with his harsh one-worded responses. 

The 90-year-old showbiz great sat down with Hollywood Reporter journalist Andy Lewis (no relation) and what followed iss painfully awkward to watch. 

Here's a sample:

Hollywood Reporter: Have you ever thought about retiring?

Jerry Lewis: Why?

HR: Was there never a moment that you thought it might be time to -

JL: WHYYYYY?

HR: You come from a generation a little older - Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra - do you see similarities with them?

JL: NONE.
