Author and publisher Ben Ohmart talks about his biography of comedienne Judy Canova. Titled "Singin' in the Corn!" after one of Judy’s most popular film comedies, this revealing book takes readers behind the scenes of a remarkable five-decade showbiz career that included film, radio, vaudeville, nightclubs, records, television and Broadway. In 1947, Judy Canova was named America’s top “comedienne” at the same time Jack Benny was dubbed our top “comedian.” Judy made over 20 films and played opposite such funnymen as Joe E. Brown, Alan Jenkins, Dennis Day, Ben Blue and Jack Benny. Skilled in physical comedy, she was also gifted with an amazing voice. Some people even called Judy the “Jenny Lind of the Ozarks.” But instead of becoming an opera singer, she used her talents to make people laugh. Making country comedy popular was her gift to showbiz.
