On the main IJBFC Webpage, we are asked to listen and time the longest laugh on "The Jack Benny Program." I didn't see what was mentioned, but I just listened to the 4/27/47 show. Benita Hume (Mrs. Ronald Colman) was eating an apple. "Ronnie" asks her if she has seen any of Phil Harris' band members, and Benita quipped, "Not while I'm eating!" The laugh lasted approximately 30 seconds. It may not be the longest laugh, but it is worth mentioning.
