When Radio Ruled Episode 33 – Fibber’s Resume 1937

Fibber McGee and Molly!

This one is a short subject, about 15 minutes long, starring Jim Jordan as Fibber McGee as in Fibber McGee and Molly.

Classic Fibber and Molly episodes featured jokes, gags, and situations that often repeated from episode to episode and became running gags that listeners looked forward to each week.

One of my favorite running gag is because Fibber can ever admit ignorance on any subject, When invariably asked if he knows anything about this or that occupation, Fibber not only knows all about it, he used to do it professionally and was the best ever at it.

And he bragged about his professional success using alliteration to great comic effect.

You’ll see what I mean.

Here, just because why not, is Fibber’s resume, 1937
