Sheldon Leonard as the Race Track Tout and Joe Besser as a Waiter, Pure Fun
11 October 2019 | by jayraskin1See all my reviews

This 1958 episode features many of his radio show guest regulars, including Sheldon Leonard, who plays his usual race-track tout character, Joe Besser (a short time member of the Three Stooges and "Stinky" on the "Abbott and Costello Show") and Mel Blanc (voice of Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig and many other cartoon characters) as the announcer.

Show regulars Mary, Rochester, and Dennis Day show up too. Not much happens, just a few race track gags. Benny had many fall--on-the-floor hysterical programs. This episode is just easy, laid back comedy that brings a few smiles.
