Shimmering in one of her trademark gowns, eyes wide and earnest, it’s not hard to see Rita Rudner’s roots as a Broadway dancer. But once she starts speaking, her embarrassing personal anecdotes and silly, surprising logic make it crystal-clear that comedy is her calling. One of the country’s standup staples since the ’80s, Ruder has taped award-winning HBO specials, made regular appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, started a residency-like run at The Venetian, won a Gracie Allen Award, and performed for President Obama. And she shows no signs of slowing down. While standup is Rudner’s primary specialty, she’s also the author of three books of essays, two novels, one play, and several screenplays.
