I first saw Rita Rudner perform her comedy on an HBO special in the mid-1980s. And I immediately fell in love with her, and her comedy.
Her routine is so low-key, so dignified, yet so hilarious. So I was delighted to have the chance to interview her, in 1992, when she had written a book of essays called “Naked Beneath My Clothes.”
So here now, from 1992, Rita rudner.
Rita Rudner is 67 now.
She is currently the longest-running solo comedy show in Las Vegas, where she’s performed since 2001.
