Seven-time comedian of the year Rita Rudner is 54 and according to her, she still has it. And "It" is a successful comedy career, New York Times Best-Selling books and a lasting marriage.

Surprisingly, Rudner started her career on a different path. At 15, she made a move to New York to become a Broadway Dancer. But that changed and the switch to comedy has been her ticket to stardom. 

She has a comedy show in Las Vegas with her dog Bonkers and is lined up for the first ever stand-up comedy special on PBS. 

Breaking the stereotype of successful women who can't have happy families, Rudner is the proud mother of an adopted 6-year-old girl and has been married to British producer Martin Bergman for 20 years. 

Rudner talks with Growing Bolder about her newest book, "I Still Have It, I Just Can't Remember Where I Put It!" and what she thinks is the secret to a happy marriage.

    Must have been great fun chatting with Rita! 
    She is a true comedic GEM and her DRY Humor is perfect for Vegas.

    We love this delightfully Funny Lady because the whole family can enjoy her material.  She actually makes perfect sense while making you think and laugh at LIFE!!!

    Her show is the ONLY reason my husband and I would ever consider venturing to Las Vegas again.  Thanks to PBS, we just saved ourselves the trip!  Rita's the real "trip" and we can hardly wait for her PBS special.

    Thanks for this very enjoyable interview, guys.
