Live from Youtube, it's Gilda Radner!

Twenty two years ago today, Gilda Radner's life was cut short by ovarian cancer. Gilda Radner was a beloved Saturday Night Live comedian who created a number of memorable characters. Her legacy lives on at, in our documentary film Making Trouble, and of course, on Youtube. Join us in celebrating her life by watching some today.

I just loved having a look back at Gilda. I was also a Jewish girl with very frizzy hair and I felt better knowing that even I got teased in school, better things awaited me when I got out in the world. Thank you for making these videos available; I enjoyed them very much.

If you like Gilda Radner, you'll enjoy this spoof about a Zumba class gone wrong. It's a fundraising project for Gilda's Club charity. See it by clicking on the link: Please watch the 3-minute video and donate by clicking on the paypal link. Happy Viewing!
