It’s not going to be a lazy afternoon when the great Golden Age musical comedy star, Kaye Ballard, sits down with Rob in her Palm Springs home to look back on her incredible career that includes the original productions of The Golden Apple, Carnival, Molly, plus Top Banana with Phil Silvers, The Mothers-in-Law with Eve Arden, Cinderella with Julie Andrews, and countless appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, and The Muppet Show.

 

Kaye pulls back the curtain on her career to discuss how she ended up on the cover of Life Magazine, what it was like discovering Paul Lynde, and why Kaye was saved from a life in prison by the generosity of Spike Jonze.

 

Also, Kaye shines the spotlight on Eve Arden, Bert Lahr, and Phil Silvers!
