Movie Info

Rose Marie's rise to fame began at the age of four with her own NBC radio show. As she grew, she went from the stages of Vaudeville to the bright lights of Vegas, to some of the most iconic television shows. But it's not just credits like The Dick Van Dyke Show and Hollywood Squares that make her life so memorable. Characters like Al Capone, Bugsy Siegel, and Jerry Lewis all played a part in this woman's story of fame, love, tragedy, and success. A woman's ninety-year career is also the greatest untold story in Show business.

"Wait for Your Laugh" pays fond tribute to a tireless trooper whom generations have known mostly as a wisecracking second banana often funnier than the bigger stars she supported.

[Jason] Wise's film is more than a tribute to her-it's a new setting within which, telling the story of her life, she performs again.
