The Bellboy is just a series of skits Lewis filmed during off hours while performing at the hotel in real-life. There's some amusing stuff there, but I'd have a hard time entertaining anyone who claims it to be his best.

It's been on iTunes in HD for awhile, along with a number of other Paramount Lewis titles that still haven't made it to Blu. At least Paramount sells HD versions somewhere, unlike WB who have only released Which Way to the Front? and Cracking Up in SD (despite providing HD versions to TCM).

I blind-bought this based entirely on the rave recommendation for 3 on a Couch by Jaime N. Christley (in the Cinephiliacs Aug. 2017 podcast, and his concurrent Village Voice review) and Domino's previous comment from Sept. 2009:
