Rita Rudner is one of our favorite comedians, as we mentioned in a blog post in January 2011. She is one of the rare comedians who can keep an audience laughing without resorting to words that keep the radio and TV bleepers busy all the time.
We discovered that Rita is as funny when being interviewed as she is when doing a stand-up routine in her home base of Las Vegas or in appearances around the country.
We caught up with her in an interview with Conn Jackson in January. He interweaves his questions for Rita with short video clips of her performing on stage. Her clipped, witty answers are reflective of her comedy style, or is it the other way around? Either way, we hope you'll laugh as we did.
