Joan Benny, Jack’s Daughter

It’s “Fathers Week” on Now I’ve Heard Everything.

Today, my comversation nearly thirty years ago with the daughter of American comedy legend Jack Benny.

One day while going through her late father’s papers, Joan Benny discovered his unpublished autobiography. She polished up that manuscript, added some of her own thoughts, and the result was a 1990 book called “Sunday Nights at Seven.”

For those of us who remember Jack Benny, it’s hard to believe it’s been 45 years since he passed away at the age of 80 .. I mean, 39.
