I remember watching Gilda Radner of Saturday Night Live decades ago, and laughing at her little bitty, teeny weeny skits which produced really really big and hearty laughs, Who could forget "Mr. Richard Feder from Forta, Leea, New Jersey". Or Miss Emily Litella? Just in case you forgot, here are some cool links to start you laughing even before the event:
Classic Roseanne Roseannadanna on Weekend Update:
Roseanne Roseanneadanna on Steroids:
Ms. Emily Litella:
She was one of the first well-known figures who died of breast cancer, and she was young, that's what I remember, she was young and in the middle of making people laugh.
In her memory, Gilda's Club was erected and has been an ongoing tribute to her smile and efforts. The Club provides many different types of activities for people and people who love them affected by not just breast cancer but other types of cancer as well. The offer networking and support groups, educational lectures and workshops to help people cope with and understand cancer, and activities, like bingo nights and potluck suppers to put some normalcy and fun into the lives of people suffering from cancer or watching someone else suffer.
