Rita Rudner's House: The Funny Lady Tries to Offload Her Home with Humor

By on April 1, 2013 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

While Rita Rudner rose to fame as a stand-up comedian in the 80s, she actually began her professional performing career as a dancer.  She graduated from high school early, and relocated from Miami to New York to focus on a dance career.  She went on to appear in multiple Broadway productions, including the original casts of "Follies" and "Mack & Mabel".  She worked primarily as a dancer for most of the 70s, and then shifted her focus to stand-up in the early 80s.  There were fewer female comedians than female dancers, and her style, a sort of female Woody Allen meets Jack Benny, proved popular quickly.  In the late 80s, she began adding film and television credits to her resume.  She went on to appear in such projects as "Gleaming the Cube", "Peter's Friends" (which she also wrote), "A Weekend in the Country", "The Nanny", "Love Hurts", and "Melissa and Joey".  She has starred in multiple award-winning comedy specials, and is the author of four books, a number of screenplays, and the play, "Room 776".  She is currently starring in her own show in Las Vegas, which may be why she recently decided to place her house in California on the market.

Rita Rudner's house has five bedrooms and three and 3/4 bathrooms.  The home, which is situated in the Dana Point Monarch Bay Community, comes will multiple amenities, including heated floors, electric solar shades, an elevator, and large windows that let in ample sunlight.  Rita Rudner's house also features a large eat-in state-of-the-art kitchen, two fireplaces, a water filtration system, and a media room.  Out back, there is a large patio, a spa, and a barbecue space.  Rita Rudner's house is on the market for $8.975 million, and while it may seem like a steep price, the genuinely funny real estate video she made in order to help sell the place, just may help it off the market in record time.
