Based on her memoir, How I Lost 10 Pounds in 53 Years with Jim Hesselman, Kaye recounts stories from burlesque to vaudeville to big bands and nightclubs, from movies to television to Broadway. Gossipy and upbeat, Kaye shares anecdotes about hanging out at the Actor’s Studio with Marlon Brando...playing Greenwich Village cabarets in the 1950s...performing with Lenny Bruce at the Hungry i...doing live television in the 1950s and The Mothers-in-Law in the 1960s. Meet Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett, Bette Davis, Barbra Streisand, Doris Day, Judy Garland, Rogers and Hammerstein, Paul Lynde, Jimmy Durante, Bert Lahr, and practically everyone else in showbiz in the last sixty years, through the eyes and distinctive voice of the inimitable Kaye Ballard. Also included are snippets of songs and routines from long out of print recordings.
