For more than 20 years, Jack Benny reigned as the king of radio comedy. How he turned a miserable, self-absorbed cheapskate into a beloved icon ranks among the great achievements in entertainment history. Benny revolutionized the way humor was played on radio by introducing the situation comedy and by giving most of the best lines to his supporting cast. The brilliant bunch of characters that surrounded Benny included Rochester, Don Wilson, Phil Harris, Dennis Day, and Mary Livingstone. The show is remembered for its "I can't stand Jack Benny because ..." contest, the classic "Your money or your life" skit, and as a forum for Benny's long running "feud" with Fred Allen
