The Last First Comic

The Last First Comic Movie Poster

This documentary features the last living burlesque comic, Irving Benson, age 97, and a host of memorable performers dating back to the early days of vaudeville and burlesque -- many of whom made their last appearance in this production.

It is a thoroughly entertaining yet poignant tribute to the history of burlesque seen through the reflections and recollections of the last remaining comic who performed in that sassy, shameless, sensual, shimmering venue, which had its roots well over a century ago.
