Episode Summary

EDIT
Hillbilly Act
AIRED:
Jack chews out his writers because they have no script yet for the next show. Telling his agent he's been working too hard, Jack says he's skipping rehearsals and leaves to play golf. The agent tells Benny's secretary the ridiculous story of how he discovered Jack, then a fiddle-playin' hick, performing in backwoods Arkansas. In the flashback, "Zeke" Benny and his shabby band, the Ozark Hillbillies, perform "You Are My Sunshine," "Fascinatin' Rhythm," and "Puttin' on the Ritz."moreless
