Beginning her career as a Broadway dancer, comedian RITA RUDNER has flourished for over three decades selling millions of tickets all over the world. She rose to fame due to a variety of HBO Specials and countless late night appearances on shows like Late Night with David Letterman and The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, which established Rudner as one of the premiere female comics to emerge from the comedy boom of the 1980s. Rudner has filled Carnegie Hall times, and holds the Las Vegas Record for the longest running solo act, where she performed over 2,000 shows over the course of 12 years. Rudner was nominated for a Writer's Guild Award for best screenplay for "Peter's Friends" which she co-wrote with her longtime writing partner and husband, Martin Bergman, and has also written for two Academy Awards with host Steve Martin. Rudner recently performed for former President Obama, and recorded her latest special, "Rita Rudner: Live from Las Vegas" for PBS as well as BBC Radio. Rudner has also written five books, including two fiction novels, "Tickled Pink", and "Turning the Tables." In 2018 she release a new special, “A Tale of Two Dresses.”
