Edie McClurg is an unforgettable actress. All you have to say is, "They think he's a righteous dude" and people light up -- "Oh, that's her!" She's been a popular character actress for decades, from "The Richard Pryor Show" up through "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles," and her voice work on "A Bug's Life." She's a trained improv actress, as well, with L.A.'s The Groundlings, and she'll be performing improv tonight at ImprovBoston as part of the All Girl Revue on the Women In Comedy Festival.
Here's a clip of her being interviewed on Boston's Fox 25.
