After appearing in several Broadway musicals, including “Follies” and “Mack and Mabel”, Rita Rudner began exploring the comedy clubs of Manhattan. Applying the same learning techniques she had acquired as a dancer to comedy, Rudner spent hours studying recordings by Jack Benny and Woody Allen and analyzing comedy construction .She developed her trademark epigrammatic style and took a full–time leap from chorus lines to punch lines in the early 80's. Appearing often on HBO, Rudner was a frequent guest on both Late Night with Letterman and The Tonight show during the time. Some of her credits include, “Rita Rudner’s One Night Stand”, her first solo HBO special, “Born to Be Mild” and “Married Without Children”. She performed all over the country, filling Carnegie Hall in NY three times and the Universal Amphitheatre in L.A. twice. She’s also performed sell–out tours internationally in Australia and England. Rita is now officially the longest–running solo comedy show in the history of Las Vegas.
