    It's X-mas 1964, so Jack does a one-man show, giving the regulars the holiday off. Solo or not, it's still a funny program. He goes into the audience for brief interviews, and these look real, not staged. Though not particularly funny, they're done with good Benny humor. Even the commercial is sung tunefully by an apparent amateur. But then who should Jack find sitting in the audience but songstress Gisele MacKenzie. She does a song, but even better, shares an amusing violin duet with Jack. They've obviously rehearsed as she keeps going off on showy flourishes to Benny's chagrin. All in all, it's a different kind of entry that still manages a share of chuckles, even without Jack's usual crackerjack cast.
