This charming documentary showcases the career of musical-comedy sensation Kaye Ballard, whose ability to sing and tell jokes was ubiquitous in the late 20th century, though she was often overshadowed by other, more well-known celebrities. Ballard, however, was in so many shows you watched in the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, you’ll recognize her immediately. And if you’re one of the lucky ones to have seen her nightclub act, that’s even more special. Her appearances on variety shows and Broadway provided plenty of delightful moments, as captured in rare archival footage and interviews with the likes of Ann-Margret, Michael Feinstein, Jerry Stiller, and Ballard herself. A host of folks are interviewed who had the pleasure of working directly with this great comedian. Now living in Palm Springs, well into her nineties, Ballard still does shows for her beloved ASPCA, entertaining audiences as she has for decades.
