It's hard to believe that it's been 26 years since the death of Gilda Radner, the brilliant Jewish comedy star of Saturday Night Live. Her hilarious characters made the show a must see every week.
Thanks to the Internet, we still have some of her landmark sketches available to watch and laugh. In the coming weeks we'll post some of her other character skits including Roseanne Roseannadanna, Emily Litella, Lisa Loopner, and Baba Wawa.
Here's a classic visit to the room of Judy Miller, Gilda's stand-in for every little girl who imagines herself the star of her very own show and acts out every role.
