Benjamin Kubelsky is one of America's most popular and enduring comedians. He began in Chicago as a teenager playing the violin on a music hall stage; in time, the violin became a prop. Benjamin changed his name to Jack Benny and he developed a persona his audiences came to love. Benny played the part of a vain, but endearing braggart, who despite his foibles and flaws charmed his way into the hearts of millions of fans. His career spanned fifty years, encompassing vaudeville, radio, television and film. Jack Benny's radio program began in 1932 and was still on the air when it moved to television in 1950. The Jack Benny Show started slowly, with only four shows in the first year, but grew into a biweekly and then a weekly show by 1958, becoming one of the most popular shows on television.
