    I have come across some of her routines on video, but I'm not aware of any on DVD. I remember the first time I saw her on TV; her style was just so different from everyone else's! In that routine, her recurring gagline was something like "...and officer, that's why I shot my husband" but I haven't seen this gagline on any of the videos I've come across. Is there anyone else who remembers this gagline, and is it available on DVD...or at least video? Thanks!

    I used to find Rita hilarious when she appeared on Evening At the Improv. Her routines can be found scattered about on various comedy anthologies, such as FUNNY LADIES VOLS 1 & 3 (4-DVD sets), JOHNNY CARSON SPECIAL COLLECTOR'S EDITION (also expensive); BEST OF THE IMPROV BOX SET); she has appeared in a few movies (THE ARISTOCRATS, BITTER JESTER, PETER'S FRIENDS, etc.) but so far I am not aware of any programs devoted to her exclusively. Hope this helps.

    I'd like a dvd of Sarah Silverman (from Greg the Bunny and that Dinner show). I think she's on the "Funny Ladies" box set too, but I recall reading that it is an unofficial release not sanctioned by anyone who appears on it.
