Sketch Where Benny Is Asked His Age?

Postby Sy » Thu Feb 11, 2010 1:53 pm

:?: Someone asked this on JB board at the IMDB. Anyone know?

I have been trying to get hold of a Jack Benny sketch when he is getting questions fired at him and when it comes to his age he says "39", of course the lady doesn't believe him so leaves that question only to return to it a couple more times but Jack is still adamant he's 39! Finally she says "Occupation?" He responds "Comedian" to which she fires back sarcastically "Figures!"

I saw this sketch on TV years ago and would so love to catch it again but I have had no luck in tracing it. At first I thought it might be the show where he was renewing his drivers licence but having recently seen this I was disappointed to discover it wasn't. Does anyone know which show it was on? Please help if you can.
Thank you so much.

I think it's one of the shows where he goes to the doctor for an insurance examination. Bea Benaderet is the nurse. There are several similar episodes, but I think only one that ends up with the "comedian"/"figures" response. They also did a similar routine in a couple of dentist sketches.
