BEA ARTHUR - 1922-2009 - Funniest Woman Ever !
Bea Arthur - AP news story
Bea Arthur - My favorite comediene. She had the best delivery and comic timing ever. Anyone who aspires to learn comedy should study her work because she was the best I have ever heard at delivering a punch line. Perfectly served every time!
Her double takes were the perfect retort to many stupid questions
The topics that were covered on Maude were breakthrough for comedy television, when is the last time the lead character from a sitcom discussed the possibility of getting an abortion...and was still able to make it funny !
The opening title sequence and theme song are still awesome 30 years later
Here clips from two of my favorite episodes
MAUDE'S GUILT TRIP
Maude dreads the visit from old Aunt "Tinki"
Maude's Desperate Hour
Maude thinks that a workman that she insulted is coming to kill her
Bea Arthur's work on the Golden Girls as Dorthy was equally brilliant, but she will always be Maude to me...Right On Maude !
