I am strictly a David Letterman devotee. Jay Leno never really caught my eye for very long. After seeing this clip (Thanks to Bernie) perhaps I would have made an exception to have witnessed this lady real-time. Marie Rudisill was Truman Capote's aunt and helped to raise him while living in Alabama and New York City. No wonder he had a different attitude. He studied at the feet of the mistress.
Sad to say that we've lost one of the greats since Moms Mabley.
