Jack Benny Question


Brian Kavanaugh
 

Question asked on our YouTube channel:
Did the script writers come up with the “poems” that Mary would read, or did Mary write them herself?
This was asked on the 10/03/1937 fourth (Jello) season opener episode, but I assume is meant generically. My assumption is that they were usually provided by the writers.

That is my assumption as well, but if I go back and look at the interviews we did with both George Balzer and Milt Josefsberg, I would find that those poems were written for Mary by all of those who wrote for Jack.
