Dear Readers: My name is Daniel Cohn and I am a student at Stevenson High School. I am currently working on the Chicago History Fair and the topic I chose to work on, was the way Jack Benny's style has influenced comedy on radio and TV.
The material that I am looking for is how his style of
comedy has been reflected on both radio and TV.
Biography information is not needed and my video
presentation has so far made it's way to the Metro Finals and is a step away from State Finals.
If any reader is able to offer any assistance, please
consider these three questions:
(a) What comedians have been influenced by Jack Benny?
(b) In what way would Jack Benny be considered
(c) In the history of US entertainment, has there
been any one more popular than Jack Benny?
I would appreciate any comments you may have to offer.
