Good entertainment from the 1960s
14 November 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a good example of entertainment from this period. Benny is himself telling the same jokes and being the butt of the same jokes. The music of the Beach Boys is interesting as are the skits. But the screaming in the background while the Beach Boys were singing was a little over the top.

I always liked Benny but now looking back at his performances I see that all the jokes are the same and all the facial expressions are the same. His timing is perfect but it is all the same. Someone makes a comment about him being cheap and he places his hand on his cheek or turns his face towards the camera.

The treatment of women on his show is also worth noting. Women are viewed as sex objects in a manner one could never get away with today. If you are at all interested in looking back in time to a different period this is an excellent program to start with.
