Jack Benny. You know, humor often doesn't translate through the decades well. But I still laugh at Jack Benny. Even when he says cheesy 50's jokes, his delivery was so perfect they WERE funny. Also I used to watch reruns with Dad. And I miss my dad.
Jack Benny (1894–1974) Born: Benjamin Kubelsky At the time of his death, he was scheduled to appear in The Sunshine Boys (1975/I). After he died, the role was taken over by his friend, George Burns.
