Born on July 23, 1945 in Kansas City, Missouri, Edie McClurg began her performing career at age five with the oxymoronic Kansas City Rhythm Kids. She retired when the dance teacher was arrested on a morals charge for "dating" the tall and lissome, yet underage, star dancer in the troupe. That girl's big number culminated with a back-bend where Edie drank a soda upside down (of course).She has a Bachelor's degree in Speech Education and a Master of Science degree from Syracuse University and taught radio at the University of Missouri-Kansas City for eight years. There she re-entered the entertainment field as a DJ, newswoman and producer for the NPR affiliate KCUR-FM. Her proudest moment was portraying John Ehrlichman in Conversation 26 of the NPR national broadcast of the Nixon Tape Transcripts. Thus did Edie contribute to the peaceful overthrow of the government of an unindicted co-conspirator.Her career-long devotion to satirical improvisation included an impressive tenure with The Groundlings.

She did several John Hughes films, including La folle journée de Ferris Bueller (1986), Un ticket pour deux (1987), La vie en plus (1988) and La p'tite arnaqueuse (1991). Offbeat cult favorites are Eating Raoul (1982), Elvira, Maîtresse des Ténèbres (1988), HBO's The Pee-Wee Herman Show (1981), and Martin Mull's The History of White People in America (1985).In more mainstream films, she received a National Media Award for her portrayal of a mentally disabled woman in Bill: On His Own (1983), starring Mickey Rooney.
