Give someone another golden day .. .

Audiences don't attend her
performances expecting
Pollyanna palaver. Clean,
clever and caustic, Rita
Rudner is seductively sweet
with a snide side. She can
bat her eyelashes and take a
swing at the jugular at the
same time. "This is not
Mary Poppins talking," she
says.
It has been a super-
califragilistic career, Ms.
Rudner will be the first to
admit. The comely come-
dian/actress/author is a one-
woman band of talent taking
note of all that life has to
offer.
A lot of that, says Ms.
Rudner, has to do with being
raised in a caring Jewish
home where she learned
good sense and sensibilities.
And the value of a good
sense of humor. Both
parents, says the comedian,
could tell a good joke.
But the comedy business is
no family affair; it is com-
petitive, and it can be gruel-
ing and enervating. Ms.
Rudner did her homework
away from home, studying
comedians on stage and
researching the art of com-
edy at the Lincoln Center
library before she got her
first club booking.
Not that she didn't have a
career to step back into. Rita
Rudner got a kick out of
musical theater early on,
and performed as a dancer
on Broadway in Annie some
20 years ago. Once a perfor-
mance was wrapped, she
danced off to the library for
more study.
Ms. Rudner concedes she
couldn't have choreogi aphed
a better career than the one
she has now in comedy.
After all, she says, dance
had its downside — espe-
cially for others. "I was a
ballerina. I was terrible. In
Swan Lake, I was the
lifeguard. I injured a groin
muscle — it wasn't mine."
Pause. "He's doing very
well."
And so is Rita Rudner.
Besides the stand-up gig in
Atlantic City, she is filming
a new pilot in Las Vegas.
"It's a new style TV show,"
muses Ms. Rudner, "a real-
ity-comedy show."
What does it have going
for it? "It's funny — and
cheap."
Getting married may have
exacted a price on her sin-
gles shtick ("You know how
I end relationships in New
York? I just say, 'I want to
marry you...I want to have
your children.' Sometimes
they make skid marks,") but
Ms. Rudner has plenty of
new source material to draw
on. 0
