In “Cloris on Comedy”, she will be
discussing her seven‐decade long career in
film, television and comedy! The event will
be moderated by her daughter Dinah

Cloris Leachman is a true American treas‐

Beginning on live television broadcasts in
the 1950s, Cloris has been a household

With the Stars” and “Raising Hope”.
Cloris can currently be seen opposite
Robert DeNiro in the new film “The
Comedian” where her character is the
