Robert Benchley Guest Stars
Broadcast: 20th October 1944

A quiz show spoof that lampooned other quiz shows of the time such as Information, Please
and The Quiz Kids
. The format of the show was simple. Three nitwits made up the "board of experts". They spent more time trying to figure out what the question was than actually giving a sensible answer. The questions were as ludicrous as “Why does a chicken cross the street?” and “What did Julius Caesar say when Brutus stabbed him?”
Critics slated the show when it first appeared and said it wouldn’t last. They were wrong. The show ran for nine years.
Special guest author and humorist Robert Benchley.
