Anyone for tennis?4:58Nobody?
howdy, Rodrigo, happy new year!
Did anything funny happen on the way to the rose bowl?
Rodrigo Araya4:59 PM
Dennis got lost…
well, it depends on whether you partook of Rochester’s egg nog or not
Tom V.4:59 PM
Happy New Year, folks!
I think the rabbit got all the nog
Rodrigo Araya4:59 PM
Then, the PA at the stadium asked us to go for him…
I have only been to the Rose Bowl for two times for their flea market, and the parking is SO TERRIBLE!!!!! I now understand why Jack was offering space in his driveway

Happy New Year!
you know, too much Dennis makes me long for Kenny and “Begin the Beguine” haha
Rodrigo Araya5:02 PM
I find Dennis way funnier, yet I like Kenny’s singing a little bit better.
Would whoever started the Beguine stop it!
Rodrigo Araya5:03 PM
Maybe because Kenny didn’t have to mow Jack’s lawn…
I agree with you, Rodrigo! Kenny’s not much of a comic actor, and Jack worked wonders to help Dennis shine (the ability to imitate folks helped, as did his innocence)
That’s why he got two shows!
best “Begin the Beguine” on Jack’s show is the harmonica version by Larry Adler, imho
Says the Adlerpated person.

JACK: Dennis, what did I pay you when you first started?
DENNIS: Thirty dollars a week.
JACK: And what am I paying you a week now?
DENNIS: Thirty-five dollars.
Doug Kiser5:05 PM
I have not heard from you people since LAST year! HNY to all!,,
Kenny on Fred Allen’s show is kind of painful, again imho
KB was tying to be a Hollywood star

“For four years, Kenny worked for Benny until he learned what money was…”
has anyone come up with a good idea for contributing to Laura’s Benny-palooza in February?
No — but that hasn’t stopped me before

how about worst use of Jack Benny on other performer’s shows? Eddie Cantor’s and Groucho’s shows in the 40s would be in my top five….5:15WOW Garth, how I wish we could get into UCLA’s vaults! Most of them are offsite, if that helps your “Mission Impossible” or “Ocean’s Eleven” plots

“Name That Tune” with Frankie Remley
hey folks, I need to go rescue dinner from the oven. I look forward to contributing to a great Benny-palooza! I hope with Barbara’s scrapbooks and her oral history of creating them……
Dinner – The one thing I hate cutting back on during my post-holiday diet — at least this year I just have to loose 5 pounds.
Rodrigo Araya5:23 PM
Say, that “Name That Tune” thing sounds good, considering the fact many of the band numbers went uncredited.
Problem is the answer will always be “Piano.”
Rodrigo Araya5:25 PM
Okay, cut Remley some slack. He spent three months in jail for stealing a cow…5:25That’s why Philsie had to play in Texas during the summer.
Rodrigo Araya5:26 PM
I’d like to hear Sammy the drummer play “Nola” on the bars of his jailcell…
Problem with the cell bars – the ones with the latch are out of tune!

More like “Farm House” rock!1957-05-02_-_jb5_-_getty_462787917_nwm_-_jack_benny_hillbilly_show.jpg
