Jack Benny’s weekly radio, which ran from 1932 to 1955, show certainly helped make him a star. JACK BENNY’S JOURNEYS are six digitally remastered episodes in which Benny shares his travel tales with enduring humor. The presentation demonstrates Benny’s skill, highlighting his flawless timing and famous ability to get laughs with a pregnant pause or a single expression. History tells us that Benny's stage character was everything Benny himself wasn't--cheap, petty, and vain, with the skinflint aspect becoming the center of the show's humor. While some of these jokes might feel dated, this audio presentation is an insight into the history of American radio and humor. M.R.E. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
