Throwback Thursday Comedy Special: Rita Rudner on The Tonight Show in 1986

 
One of the hallmarks of Rita Rudner's comedy is that it's clean, free from the vulgarity and shouting that many stand-up comics find necessary.  Sure, there's usually some sexual innuendo but her delivery is demure, tasteful, full of wry observations, and very funny.

Rudner started her career as a dancer, then switched to stand-up comedy about her dating experiences.  She married British producer Martin Bergman and now they have a daughter.  She is fond of Jewish humor but generally reserves it for when she performs for Jewish audiences.
 
For this Throwback Thursday we're going back 32 years to 1986 (gosh, has she been performing that long?) when she made an appearance on the Johnny Carson Tonight Show.

Enjoy!
