Jack Benny (born Benjamin Kubelsky; Feb 14, 1894 – Dec 26, 1974) left show business briefly in 1917 to join US Navy during World War I, and he often entertained troops with his violin playing. One evening, his violin performance was booed by troops, so with prompting from fellow sailor and actor Pat O'Brien, he ad-libbed his way out of the jam and left them laughing. He received more comedy spots in revues & did well, earning himself a reputation as a comedian & musician.
