The Flashback Interview: Judy Tenuta
My next interview subject has many nicknames. Some call her the Love Goddess. Others call her The Petite Flower. Still others refer to her as the Princess Of Panty Shields or the Empress Of Elvis Impersonators. Simply put, she is Judy Tenuta, comedienne, actress, musician and a talent I find to be very underrated. 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the HBO special Women Of The Night, a comedy special that introduced much of the world to Ms. Tenuta, as well as many other formidable comedic voices. To mark the 30th anniversary of that special, and also because I’m a fan of her work, I reached out to her press representative, B. Harlan Boll, about an interview with Judy. He set it up, and we spoke on February 13th.
