If you're too young to know who she was...you've missed a gem! Totie was one of few female stand-ups working in the 60's and 70's. She always made me laugh! Mike Douglas often used her as a co-host on his show. I remember turning on his show one day in the mid 70's, by this time I was in junior high school, and Totie came out in a wheelchair. One of her legs had been amputated. I remembered it as having been due to diabetes, but wikipedia says it was a botched blood clot surgery. Either way, it didn't stop her, she was still as funny as ever!
So, for those who have never had the pleasure...and for those who have...here is the only video I can find on the Internet. Her closing joke is one I have never forgotten!
