Madeline Kahn was born on September 29, 1942 in Boston, Massachusetts as Madeline Gail Wolfson to Paula & Bernard Wolfson. Her parents divorced when she was two years old. Her mother was 17 when she had her. They moved to New York, and her mother remarried and gave birth to two more children that are named Jeffrey and Robyn. She stayed at a boarding school until 1952 and her mother started an acting career. Madeline herself also started acting. She graduated from high school and college and had performed at those places too. Ever since she has appeared in theatres, motion picutres and television, many people that she is one of the funniest, tallented, award-winning, and briliant people with anything that she has ever done.
She starred in several movies and TV shows and other performances, including Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, and High Anxiety.
She appeared in a music video with Grover, and the two of them sang the "Sing After Me" song. More lyrics were "Pick a peck of peppers," "Pick a peck of peppers," "Fiddle Diddle Dee---EeeeeEeeEEEEeeee" which was Madeline holding that last note very long, and held it even longer each time, and Grover was unable to catch up to her. One time he paused and remarked to her "Show off." during the middle of the song. At the end of the song, Grover runs out of breath while trying to hold a note as long or possibly even longer, exactly as Madeline sang it... She also appeared in The Muppet Show and The Mupped Movie.
Later, she performed the voice for a movie called "The Magic 7" which has taken years to make because of numerous production problems. Production began around 1990, and the voice actors recorded their parts, and several of them had passed away during mid-production. And yes, both John Candy and Madeline Kahn were actors in this movie, and no, sadly neither of them are alive. They recorded their voices when the movie was still in its very long production.
One of the final major things that Madeline starred in was a show named COSBY. It aired on CBS, and is nothing like "The Cosby Show" on NBC. Some people dislike this show because it isn't like The Huxtables, but they are also missing the point because it was never intended to be another show that either about The Huxtables or similar to The Huxtables. This show is based on The BBC's "One Foot In The Grave" starring Richard Wilson and Annette Crosbie, and created and produced by David Renwick. COSBY is based on this show, but is set in The United States with actors Bill Cosby and Phylicia Rashād as Hilton and Ruth Lucas. Hilton is now retired, and the show is about everything that he does now and his activities in his neighborhood. They had a daughter living with them, and also another neighbor named Griffin Vesey (played by Doug E. Doug) Madeline was nearby, and also worked in a coffee shop with Ruth. Madeline's character was very funny and eccentric, and said several funny things like "My goodness! I new they shouldn't have taken down that lighthouse..." when she sees Hilton's boat, and also one of her funniest sayings was "They're showing Martha Stewart again. This is her fourth show today. She's going to knit a chair." Sadly, she had passed away during the production of the show, and the show itself ended shortly after that. Bill Cosby also wanted to retire from television.
