Hardcore Jack Benny fans may like, but...

What would have made Jack Benny Spoofs better?

Funnier writing. Some Jack Benny programs are full of fun and laughs; these shows are not. There's not much wit here.

Has Jack Benny Spoofs turned you off from other books in this genre?

I will be careful which Jack Benny

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators???s performances?


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Jack Benny Spoofs?

Pretty much all of it. There's little wit, the live audience on the soundtrack doesn't seem to know if and when to laugh.

Any additional comments?

Jack Benny shows vary in quality. These shows are at the lower end. Insults are too direct, gags are cliche'-ridden, there's not too much inspired comedy here.
