Yes, Jack Benny was a guest on Jack Paar's talk show quite a bit. In fact, it was Jack Benny who stopped the nasty feud between Paar and Ed Sullivan (or at least Jack TRIED to stop it)
Some have said that Jack may have breached talk-show etiquette by blindsiding Paar and bringing up such a touchy subject
i'm sure hearing that coming from Benny, on TV no less, made more of an impact on Paar than it would had it come from someone like a TV or newspaper critic...
