"A lovely, heartfelt film. You'll enjoy getting to know Irv Benson." - Leonard Maltin
"Thank you for a wonderful journey!" - Carol Burnett
"My pork pie hat's in the air to "The Last First Comic" - for letting me relive those glory days of baggy pants, top bananas, and classic, precisely timed, laugh-out-loud-till-it-hurts sketches."
- Ed. Weinberger
"The Last First Comic is a brilliant documentary that should be required viewing for anyone interested in a career in comic performing or writing. Irv Benson pairings with Milton Berle and Johnny Carson are hilarious examples and a perfect teaching tool to demonstrate the comic device known as "the take." No one does it better than Irv!"
