Kaye Ballard was fifteen when she made her professional debut, singing in a USO show in her home town of Cleveland. Two years later, Kaye was a solo performer on the RKO vaudeville circuit. She made it to the New York legitimate stage in 1946's Three to Make Ready. A much-in-demand cabaret performer, Kaye Ballard brought her con brio musical comedy technique to television in the 1951 weekly Henry Morgan's Great Talent Hunt. The first of her all-too-infrequent film appearances was in The Girl Most Likely, the 1957 musical remake of Tom Dick and Harry. Kaye's Broadway credits in the 1960s included the musical hit Carnival (1961) and the intimate revue The Decline and Fall of the Whole World as Seen Through the Eyes of Cole Porter Revisited (1965). From 1967 to 1969, Kaye co-starred with Eve Arden on the Desi Arnaz-produced TV sitcom The Mothers-in-Law. Kaye Ballard was later seen on a weekly basis on The Doris Day Show (1970) and The Steve Allen Comedy Hour (1980), and such films as Freaky Friday (1977), The Ritz (1980) and Tiger Warshaw (1984).
