The Life and Loves of Jack Benny

Please join our friends at the Niles Historical Society as they present, The Life and Loves of Jack Benny.  The storyteller, Ms Debi Gajewski, will weave a story about the life of a “ supposed miserly” man that many of us know something about; The person know as Jack Benny, born Benjamin Kubelsky on February 14, 1894.

Through storytelling, she will delight us by talking about Jack Benny, from his birth and growing up in his family, to his days of living a life in Vaudeville, his dating life and his marriage to Sadie Marks (stage name of Mary Livingston). Debi will reveal to us his love for daughter Joan, his love for radio, talk shows, films, television, and all the way to the end of his life. Debi’s storytelling will bring to light a Jack Benny no one really knew about.
