I Get a Kick Outa’ You

“I Get a Kick Out Of You” is a song written by Cole Porter in 1934 for his Broadway musical Anything Goes. Frank Sinatrarecorded this song for his 1954 Capitol album Songs for Young Lovers.

Sinatra re-recorded this song under Reprise Records for his 1962 album, Sinatra and Swingin’ Brass. The song has appeared in several films and television shows and has been recorded by numerous artists.

Jack Benny (born Benjamin Kubelsky; February 14, 1894 – December 26, 1974) was an American comedian, vaudevillian, radio, television, and film actor, and violinist. Recognized as a leading American entertainer of the 20th century, Benny portrayed his character as a miser, playing his violin badly. In character, he would be 39 years of age, regardless of his actual age.

Benny was known for comic timing, and the ability to create laughter with a pregnant pause or a single expression, such as his signature exasperated “Well!” His radio and television programs, popular from the 1930s to the 1970s, were a major influence on the sitcom genre.

In 1929 Benny’s agent, Sam Lyons, convinced Irving Thalberg, American film producer atMetro-Goldwyn-Mayer, to watch Benny at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. Benny signed a five-year contract with MGM, where his first role was in The Hollywood Revue of 1929.

At first dubious about the viability of radio, Benny grew eager to break into the new medium. In 1932, after a four-week nightclub run, he was invited on to Ed Sullivan’s radio program, uttering his first radio spiel “This is Jack Benny talking. There will be a slight pause while you say, ‘Who cares?’
