Rita Rudner moved to New York at the age of fifteen to become a dancer on Broadway. She appeared in several shows, including the original productions of Follies and Mack & Mabel. It was while in Annie on Broadway that she began exploring the comedy clubs of Manhattan. In the early ’80s, Rudner took a full-time leap from chorus lines to punch lines and was soon a regular guest on both Late Night With David Letterman and The Tonight Show. Today, Rudner continues to make audiences laugh as a stand-up comic and is a frequent collaborator with her writer/producer husband of 20 years, Martin Bergman.
One of the most versatile and successful comedians working in Hollywood today, Louie Anderson is beloved by many audiences.

Getting his break from Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show in 1984, Anderson shows no signs of slowing down today as he puts his creative energies to work on the Saturday morning animated series Life with Louie, which won two Emmy Awards®.
