Jack Benny (born Benjamin Kubelsky in Chicago, Illinois)
(February 14, 1894 – December 26, 1974)

 

Jack Benny is recognized as a leading entertainer of the 20th century,
known for his comic timing, and the ability to create laughter with a pause
or a single expression, such as his signature exasperated "Well!" His radio
and television programs, popular from the 1930s to the 1970s, were a big
influence on the sitcom genre. In character, he would be 39 years of age,
regardless of his actual age.
