At Downstairs at Upstairs, we heard a fine young comedienne-singer, Bette Midler, who has scored on the Carson, Frost, Griffin and Mike Douglas shows.

Born in New Jersey, her family moved to Hawaii where she worked on the assembly line of a pineapple canning factory.

Returning to New York, she worked as a typist at Columbia U, sold gloves at Stern’s and played in little Jewish revues in the Catskills. For three years, she was Tzeitel in “Fiddler on the Roof” and then replaced Marta Heflin in the rock musical “Salvation.”
