  • Episode Description
  • Jack's guests are TV hostess Faye Emerson and singer Frank Sinatra. Benny and Sinatra do a skit about New York City and Frank performs "Take My Love". From his dressing room Jack phones Mary to ask how he looks on TV; she confuses him with Sinatra. Jack tells Faye Emerson he should be her love interest in her new romance movie. To prove he's more than a comedian, he does a dramatic scene with her that's supposed to end in a kiss. Sinatra walks in, makes fun of Jack's delivery, and steals the kiss for himself. Frank Fontaine portrays John L.T. Savonie, a character that he would later use as Crazy Guggenheim on Jackie Gleason and his American Scene Magazine. In a running gag, he recites his endless Social Security number.moreless
