An insight into the life and humor of Jack Benny, widely recognized as one of the leading entertainers of the 20th century. His humor continues to delight us –his supposed “stinginess” (he was actually the most generous of men) his recurring 39th birthday, his off-key violin playing (actually an accomplished musician.) Brought to life in a one man play by the incomparable Tim Newell.
Directed by: Saul Elkin
