If he were still with us, Jack Benny would have celebrated his 39th birthday again this past Valentine's Day. Just as the kid from Waukegan, Illinois refused to grow old, his comedy remains as fresh and funny today as when he presented it on radio, screen and television.
Presented here is a collection of rare and delightful essays and personal reminiscences on perhaps the greatest comedian who has ever lived. Jack Benny's impact on the world of entertainment was profound, and the ripples of his influence are still expanding today.
Jack Benny gave the world a tremendous amount of laughter and pleasure. His work demands, and deserves, continued scrutiny and analysis, which the writers of this volume are honored to provide.
