I remember seeing this when it was broadcast (How else could you even know of its existence, except to scan way down on his IMDb list?). Not surprisingly, it was hilarious. Jack was trying to be hip by using the term 'bag' in the title. It was '68 and even the old-timers had sideburns, but Benny remained one of the most endearing entertainers ever. You could always rely on him and his gang. I bet these latter day TV specials in his career would hold up pretty well, and would probably be funnier than when they first came out. The TV Special or Variety formula was basically vaudevillian, which is where these guys learned their trade. I can't remember the content really, but it doesn't matter. Enjoyable entertainment always resulted.
