Several of us have been wondering why Gilbert Seldes waited 14 years to write a critical review of Jack's radio program....
Well, after doing some research, I've discovered that Mr. Seldes had written an article on the "hostile" state of radio comedy IN GENERAL. He wrote how mean insult comedy was becoming the norm on various radio programs, and he happened to single out Jack's show as the "supreme offender".
OK, so maybe those gags WERE mean and insulting...but they sure were FUNNY!
