Skits From Allen & Jack Benny Shows
Radio shows featuring Fred Allen.

Jack Benny and Fred Allen were long time friends. Both were former Vaudevillians, and had been friends during that part of their careers. Before entering radio, they had been neighbors in New York while playing in different Broadway Productions. They had differing approaches to their performances. Benny's genius was in comedic delivery and timing; he generally stuck close to the script that was written and made it a point to employ the best writers he could find, often having several on staff. According to biographer Sam Bass Jr., "Fred Allen wrote a great deal of his own material, and supervised carefully what others prepared for him." Allen was great at ad-libbing- if a line was blown or didn't play well, his ad-libbed cover would be funnier than the original line.
