Rita Rudner

Biography

Rita Rudner has parlayed her "niceness" into an impressive list of credits within the past year alone: she won the 1990 American Comedy Award as Best Female Stand-Up, she starred in her own comedy variety series in England which aired on the BBC 2, and she's starred in her first solo hour-long special for HBO titled Born To Be Mild.

In addition, Rita Rudner became a regular on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson where she traded quips with him with ease. Her other television credits include numerous appearances on Late Night With David Letterman, performing on Comic Relief, starring in her own HBO One Night Stand in 1989, being one of four featured comediennes on HBO's first Women Of The Night special, and she co-hosted the NBC summer series Funny People. Rita Rudner also recently made Friars Club history by being the first female comic ever invited to be a "roaster".

One of the most ethereal comedians on today's hyperkinetic comedy circuit, Rita Rudner's soft-spoken humor has led to sold-out club appearances across the U.S.A., as well as in England and Australia. Her non-stop, witty observations on modern life cover such diverse topics as relationships, family, and the importance of cleaning ladies.

A native of Miami, Rita Rudner left home at age 15 to seek her fame and fortune on the Broadway stage. "I never even considered college," she says. "I was a dancer - I hated sitting down." She soon landed a role in the national touring company of' Zorba and went on to appear in Annie, The Magic Show, Mack and Mabel, Follies, and Promises, Promises on Broadway.
