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 jwa.org, 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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v... Please watch the 3-minute video and donate by clicking on the paypal link. Happy Viewing!
