1:26:37 The Great Radio Comedians – PBS Doc with Jack Benny, George Burns, Edgar Bergen (5/11/72)

Vintage Comedy Vault II

This is truly an excellent, one of a kind PBS documentary on the history of radio comedy. Because it was produced in 1972, many of the greats were still alive and well. Included in long interview segments are George Burns, Jack Benny, Bing Crosby and Edgar Bergen, as well as members of Fred Allen’s radio cast (who also do a new “Allen’s Alley” routine), Bob Hope, and Fibber McGee and Molly (Jim and Marian Jordan), among many others.
