The Jack Paar Show

Jack Paar

Listen to all posted episodes of The Jack Paar Show

Jack Paar was discovered by Jack Benny while entertaining troops during World War II. His summer series was well-promoted by Benny, and continued in the fall, still sponsored by Lucky Strike.

When Paar disagreed with the sponsor over generating sillier comedy and catchprases, the show was dropped. After that, Paar never had much success in radio, but later became a television icon hosting "Tonight".
