TriviaDated Martin Short during the early seventies, after meeting him during the run of the legendary 1972 Toronto production of Godspell. In addition to Radner and Short, this production also starred Victor Garber, Eugene Levy, Dave Thomas and Andrea Martin, with Paul Shaffer as musical director. Radner's understudy, Canadian comic actress Nancy Dolman began dating Short in 1974 and married him in 1980. Interred at Long Ridge Cemetery, Stamford, Connecticut, USA. Gene Wilder and Gilda's cancer psychotherapist, Joanna Bull, established Gilda's Club in 1991. It was Gilda Radner's wish that a place could be established where people of all ages diagnosed with cancer could come together and support one another through the illness. The centers are non- medical and very homey, with an art center, exercise facility, game rooms, and a children's room called Noogieland, so named for "noogies", one of Gilda's comedic actions. No such place as Gilda's Club existed when Gilda Radner battled her ovarian cancer. Gilda's Club is now North America-wide, with new centers opening up all over the United States and Canada. Won a Posthumous Grammy for Best Spoken Word Or Non-Musical Recording in 1990. Biography in: "American National Biography." Supplement 1, pp. 499-500. New York: Oxford University Press, 2002. Graduated from The Liggett School (now University Liggett School) in Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan in 1966. 30 Rock star and creator (and ex-SNL writer and player) Tina Fey has named Radner as the main reason she became a comedy writer.
