Britannica Concise

U.S. comedian. Son of a storekeeper in Waukegan, Ill., he played the violin in vaudeville from 1912. After discovering a talent for comedy while in the navy, he returned to vaudeville as a comedian. He made his film debut in 1927 and appeared in 18 films in the years 1930-45. His weekly Jack Benny Program on radio (1932-55) and television (1950-65) won loyal audiences, and he became famous for a unique comic style characterized by subtle verbal inflection, meaningful pauses, seriocomic violin playing, and the stage image of a vain, stingy man.
