Buzzi was born at Westerly Hospital, Westerly, Rhode Island, the daughter of Rena Pauline and Angelo Peter Buzzi, a nationally recognized stone sculptor.[2][3] She was raised in Wequetequock, Connecticut, in a rock house overlooking the ocean at Wequetequock Cove, where her father owned Buzzi Memorials, a business still operated by her older brother, Harold.[4] Her father was born in Arzo, Switzerland, in the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino. He carved the marble eagles at Penn Station in New York, the granite Leif Erikson
Leif Erikson
memorial in Providence, Rhode Island, the animals seen in relief on the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, and made thousands of tombstones. He was asked to work on the carving of the Presidents on Mount Rushmore
Mount Rushmore
but declined, out of a fear of heights. Her mother was born in the United States to immigrants from northern Italy. Buzzi attended Stonington High School, where she was head cheerleader. At 17, she enrolled at the Pasadena Playhouse
Pasadena Playhouse
for the Performing Arts and graduated with honors. She studied voice, dance, and acting, and took courses in cosmetology.[citation needed] Career[edit]

Early successes[edit] Before graduation from college, Buzzi was already a working actress with a union card in musical and comedy revues. Her first job in show business was at 19, traveling with singer Rudy Vallee
Rudy Vallee
in a live musical and comedy act during her summer break from college; it allowed her to graduate with a treasured union card with Actors' Equity Association. She moved to New York City
New York City
after graduation and was hired immediately for a lead role in an off-Broadway musical revue, the first of 19 in which she performed across the East Coast. In musical and comedy revues from Provincetown, Massachusetts, to the Catskills of New York, to off-Broadway, she worked alongside other young, talented performers just beginning their careers at the time, including Barbra Streisand, Joan Rivers, Dom DeLuise, Bernadette Peters and Carol Burnett. Buzzi performed in New York musical variety shows, and she made numerous television commercials, some of which won national awards including the Clio Award. Her first national recognition on television came on The Garry Moore Show in 1964,[5] just after Carol Burnett
Carol Burnett
was replaced by Dorothy Loudon on the series. Buzzi saw her first taste of national fame as "Shagundala the Silent", a bumbling magician's assistant to her comedy partner Dom DeLuise
Dom DeLuise
who played "Dominic the Great". Buzzi was a member of the regular repertory company on the CBS
variety show The Entertainers (1964–65). In 1966–67, Buzzi appeared in Sweet Charity, with Fosse's wife, Gwen Verdon, in the original cast. She had several small roles, one of them "the Singing Fairy".[citation needed] On Laugh-In
and related work[edit] In the late 1960s, Ruth Buzzi
Ruth Buzzi
appeared in every episode of The Steve Allen Show, a comedy-variety series starring Steve Allen. Her character parts in the Allen sketches led her to be cast for NBC's new show Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In. She was the only featured player to appear in every episode of Laugh-In
including the pilot for the show and the Laugh-In
television special. A versatile comedian and accomplished singer, Buzzi played everything from dowdy old women to tipsy drunks, from Southern belles to flashy hookers. Among her recurring characters on Laugh-In
were Busy-Buzzi, a Hedda Hopper-type Hollywood gossip columnist; Doris Swizzler, a cocktail-lounge habituée who always got riotously smashed with husband Leonard (Dick Martin); and one of the Burbank Airlines Stewardesses, teaming with Debbie Reynolds
Debbie Reynolds
as two totally inconsiderate flight attendants. Her most famous character was dowdy spinster Gladys Ormphby, clad in drab brown with her bun hairdo covered by a visible hairnet knotted in the middle of her forehead. Buzzi first used this look when she played Agnes Gooch in a school production of Auntie Mame. In most sketches, she used her lethal purse, with which she would flail away vigorously at anyone who incurred her wrath. On Laugh-In, Gladys most often appeared as the unwilling object of the advances of Arte Johnson's "dirty old man" character Tyrone F. Horneigh. In a typical exchange, Tyrone accosts Gladys and asks, "Do you believe in the hereafter?" "Of course I do!" Gladys retorts defensively. Delighted, Tyrone shoots back: "Then you know what I'm here after!" NBC
collectively called these two characters The Nitwits when they went to animation in the mid-1970s as part of the series Baggy Pants and the Nitwits. Buzzi and Johnson both voiced their respective roles in the cartoon. Buzzi, as Gladys, was featured in most of the Dean Martin
Dean Martin
Roasts from the MGM Hotel in Las Vegas. Memorable shows included her intense comedic dialogue, ranting about notable roastees including Muhammad Ali, Frank Sinatra, and Lucille Ball, to name a few. In each case, Gladys Ormphby pugnaciously attacked the honoree with her flailing purse to the screams and howls of the Las Vegas
Las Vegas
audience. Martin would also suffer Gladys's purse assaults for his remarks about her unappealing looks and poor romantic prospects. In one such exchange, Gladys accusingly questioned Martin about who had been chasing her around a hotel room in the wee hours; Martin's response ("The exterminator!") earned him a beating as he broke up laughing along with the audience. Gladys then declared to the audience that, when Martin and other men looked at her, only one thing came to their minds. Martin, still laughing, could barely get out the answer: "Rabies!" This earned him an even fiercer beating from Gladys.[citation needed] Continued success on television[edit]

She was also a guest star on the syndicated sitcom Down to Earth in 1985. Dean Martin's producer, Greg Garrison, obviously enjoyed Buzzi's work as a comedy sketch artist and hired her for his comedy specials starring Dom DeLuise. She charted the single "You Oughta Hear The Song" in 1977. It reached #90 on Billboard's national Country Music chart.[citation needed] Buzzi was a guest star on many television series including Donny & Marie, The Flip Wilson Show, The Dean Martin

She also appeared occasionally on game shows and was a celebrity judge on The Gong Show.

She appeared eight times on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson
The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson
and has made more than 200 other television guest appearances.[5] Buzzi is an accomplished voice actress. She voiced the character Nose Marie in the Hanna-Barbera
animated series Pound Puppies (1986). She also voiced Mama Bear in Berenstain Bears (1985) and performed hundreds of guest voices for many other cartoon series, including The Smurfs, The Angry Beavers
The Angry Beavers
and Mo Willems' Sheep in the Big City.[5] She appeared frequently on Sesame Street
Sesame Street
in comedy sketch clips from her six years on that show, and is often heard as the voice of outlandish failed torch singer Suzie Kabloozie. While she was a regular performer on Sesame Street, she was nominated for an Emmy Award for her work as Ruthie, a shopkeeper.[citation needed] Buzzi performed in numerous national television commercials, most notably for Clorox
2, Clairol, Ban roll-on deodorant, and Santa Anita Raceway, and voicing Granny Goodwitch in television commercials for Sugar Crisp cereal. She originated the Goodwitch character in the animated TV series Linus! The Lion Hearted (1964–65).[5] Buzzi appeared in the "Weird Al" Yankovic
"Weird Al" Yankovic
video "Gump" and similarly appeared in other music videos with the rock groups B-52's
and The Presidents of the United States of America. She appeared on Saved by the Bell (playing Screech Powers's wacky Elvis fanatic mother), The Muppet Show, You Can't Do That on Television
You Can't Do That on Television
(during its CTV-produced incarnation Whatever Turns You On), and numerous other television shows. She played the role of the eccentric Nurse Kravitz on NBC's daytime soap opera Passions. In 2006 and 2007, she made guest appearances on the children's TV series Come on Over.[5] Buzzi had a successful nightclub act across the United States, including at Las Vegas's Sahara and at the MGM Grand hotels. She performed the act for one year. Her shows all sold out and she was reportedly offered an extended stay but declined.[citation needed] She had featured roles in more than 20 feature films, including Chu Chu and the Philly Flash, Freaky Friday, The North Avenue Irregulars, The Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again, The Villain, The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland and a number of westerns for the European market known as the Lucky Luke
Lucky Luke
series in which she plays the mother of the Dalton Gang.[5] Filmography[edit] Television[edit]
