The late great comedian Gilda Radner would have been 69 years old this week. We've been running video clips of some of her best routines and portrayals of characters such as Roseanne Roseannadanna and Judy Miller.
We found a clip of an on-stage performance where Gilda used her Emily Litella character in a classroom sketch directed in 1980 by Mike Nichols. We thought you'd like to reminisce with us as she becomes the character and delivers her funny lines with impeccable timing.
Unlike the Saturday Night Live skits, this one gets close to being R-rated, but she saves the day with her classic line "Never mind."
