Episode 19: Jenny Brill

© Josh Mills. All Rights Reserved.

Today on the Rarified Heir Podcast, we talk to Jenny Brill, daughter of the comedy team Charlie Brill & Mitzi McCall. Married 61 years ago, Mitzi and Charlie have had an incredible career having met in 1959 at Jerry Lewis Workshop & their marriage that endures to this day. Their career spans everything from Laugh-In to Star Trek, The Ed Sullivan Show to the Silk Stalking from Pebbles & Bam-Bam to Playboy After Dark. Oh and did we mention they were guest stars on Josh’s Mom’s 1964 ABC variety show The Edie Adams Show with Sammy Davis jr.? We talk to Jenny about growing up in celebrity filled elementary school, trips on cruises where their parents were working, running around Hollywood Blvd in the 70s, having Famous Amos bake her cookies before they went commercial, a triple date to see Kramer Vs. Kramer and much more. It’s Yoda and Yoga on the Rarified Heir Podcast coming up next. Did I hear someone say, “The Trouble with Tribbles?”
