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