The king of radio comedy from the Great Depression through the early 1950s, Jack Benny was one of the most influential entertainers in twentieth-century America. A master of comic timing and an innovative producer, Benny, with his radio writers, developed a weekly situation comedy to meet radio’s endless need for new material, at the same time integrating advertising into the show’s humor. Through the character of the vain, cheap everyman, Benny created a fall guy, whose frustrated struggles with his employees addressed midcentury America’s concerns with race, gender, commercialism, and sexual identity. Kathryn H. Fuller-Seeley contextualizes her analysis of Jack Benny and his entourage with thoughtful insight into the intersections of competing entertainment industries and provides plenty of evidence that transmedia stardom, branded entertainment, and virality are not new phenomena but current iterations of key aspects in American commercial cultural history.

This book is a real find - for those who enjoy radio nostalgia but more importantly for scholars of broadcasting. From 1947 to 1950, while listening to such voices as Bob Hope, Red Skelton, Milton Berle, Jack Benny, Fred Allen, and Jimmy Durante, and shows like Fibber McGee & Molly, Amos 'n' Andy, Blondie, and You Bet Your Life, the author was writing down gags and quotations. He filled 11 spiral notebooks - and fifty years later transcribed his notes into this invaluable (in fact, unique) record of a boom time in American radio. This is an unexpected treasure for radio scholars, who have long lamented the paucity of recordings. Television researchers as well will benefit: Here are the root sources of television comedy. A notes and comments section includes background material on all the radio programs in this book.
