My Life in Dog Years: A Memoir

November 11, 2022

Comedy legend Rita Rudner, known for her epigrammatic one-liners, has enjoyed a fifty-plus year career that has included dancing, singing, acting, creating award-winning TV specials, novels, essay collections, screenplays, theater plays, a musical and a syndicated TV series.

In the middle of all that, she has somehow enjoyed a successful marriage and raised a daughter. Rita started as a dancer on Broadway in such shows as Follies, Mack & Mabel and Annie. In the early 1980s she decided to switch from chorus lines to punch lines and was soon a regular guest on both Late Night with David Letterman and The Tonight Show. Eponymous cable TV specials followed, as she performed in theaters all over the world – from the Palladium in London to Carnegie Hall in New York.

If you haven’t seen Rita live in a theater, reading this book is the next best thing.
