On what would be her 67th birthday, today we honor Gilda Radner, one of the original members of Saturday Night Live and a comedic legend. She died at the age of 42 in 1989 from ovarian cancer. To celebrate all the laughs she’s given us, we’ve selected a trio of clips to share. Feel free to tell us your favorite Gilda moments in the comments section. Enjoy.

    For me, her Judy Miller Show routine is still the best of the best! If you’ve watched any woman on SNL with any comedy chops whatsoever in the past 25 years, they have had a character in their repertoire that was an homage to Judy Miller. Amy Poehler’s Kaitlin HAD to be her channelling Gilda, I swear, and it was the funniest character SNL has had since Gilda left us. Thank you for all the laughs Gilda, you were taken from us much too soon!
