Jack Benny Collection

The Jack Benny Program

Comedy at its BEST!

On March 29, 1932, Jack went on his friend Ed Sullivan's radio show and the rest they is history! On May 2nd he was given his own show. For eight years, The Jell-O Program starring Jack Benny entertained American audiences. Jack and his regulars Mary Livingston (Sadie Marks, his real-life wife.), Dennis Day, Rochester (Eddie Anderson), Phil Harris, and Don Wilson, performed their comedic variety show every Sunday at 7:00pm.

The Jack Benny Program was in production on two different radio networks from 1932 to 1958, under six product brands. Jack Benny had a comedic style that was unique and all his own. Instead of making jokes about others, the jokes would often be at Jack Benny's expense. He would allow the other actors on his radio show to get the laugh. He developed a radio character that was extremely miserly with money, vain beyond reason and a talentless violinist. This character was enhanced by a talented cast of actors who worked with Jack. In the 1950's with the arrival of television, Jack Benny worked in both radio and TV simultaneously. This lasted until 1955. Reruns of the Jack Benny show ran until 1957. Jack Benny continued his television work until 1965.
